Apple Fritter Bourbon Shake

by James Stevenson

I recently made a stop at my local doughnut shop Top Pot and literally lost all self restraint. I picked up several treats including a massive apple fritter and Seahawks themed chocolate doughnuts. I get inspiration for cocktails in all kinds of places and this doughnut shop sparked some ideas. I decided that a apple fritter would be the perfect match for a boozy milkshake. What is your ideal boozy shake?

, Apple Fritter Bourbon Shake


  • 2 ounces of bourbon
  • 4 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream (one saved to add as a garnish)
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • ½ cup of apple fritter chopped (I froze the apple fritter for about 1 hour so that it blend better into the milkshake)
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Garnish: cinnamon stick and ground cinnamon


  1. In a blender combine bourbon, ice cream, apple cider, apple fritter, and cinnamon
  2. Blend until desired consistency
  3. *Note: add more ice cream if mixture is too thin or more apple cider if it is too thick
  4. Pour blended mixture into serving glass
  5. Top with additional ice cream scoop
  6. Garnish with cinnamon stick and ground cinnamon
