Malted Tequila Milkshake

Why a malted tequila milkshake, you may ask? Because we can!

And because it is outrageously delicious and silky and smooth and a true treat.

And because we have so much to celebrate: Mexican cuisine is stepping out of the “ethnic” denomination and proudly stepping into the mainstream as people’s appetite has increased to the point of wanting to get to know it better…

And because misconceptions about Mexicans, Mexican food and Mexican ingredients continue to be broken, and the beauty, diversity, richness and wealth of what “Mexican” encompasses is being acknowledged.

And because the myth that tequila is only worthwhile for being drunk as shots during Spring Break no longer holds true. There is not only good, but phenomenal quality tequila that can be sipped as the finest of whiskeys. To boot, it can also be used as a fine ingredient for mixed drinks, and it has so much versatility that there is even exquisite tequila liqueur that can be sipped as an apéritif or used for desserts.

And because we have the freedom to play in our kitchens, with much respect for our heritage and the ingredients that come along with it, I have taken the liberty of creating this glorious grown up milkshake! I wish I could have made it in time for inclusion in my upcoming cookbook Mexican Today. But every single recipe in there is a recipe I am proud of, whether a rediscovered classic or a new dish. My hope is you will savor every bite of what you try from it, as we do at home.

And because I want to make a toast to you all, with all my gratitude, for coming to this site to visit, for watching any or many of the episodes of my PBS series and  letting me come into your home. Hopefully, I will get to meet many of you during my upcoming 20-plus city book tour.

And because my promise to you is to keep on working as hard as I can to make every single recipe you try here completely worth it.

With much love,

Pati

    Hi Pati!
    I do not care for malted milk powder. What could I use instead?

      You can leave out the malted milk and it will still be a delicious milkshake!

    I made your Malted Tequila Milkshakes. Everybody loved them ! I follow a WFPB life , so i made mine with coconut milk ice cream and cashew milk, and it was fabulous. I love watching your show and your recipes are fantastic. Thank you for the inspirations.

    I just discovered Agavero recently, in time to take it to an anniversary party for a group of Latino friends. So delicious straight up, not too sweet, and very smooth to drink. I had to drive 30 minutes to get it, since no store in my area carried it, but well worth the trip. Now I guess I’ll have to buy another bottle to make milkshakes!

    Hi Pati,
    where can I get the tequila liqueur? Can I use any tequila like don julio?

    1. Pati

      Mar 22

      Myrna,
      You can ask in your local liqueur store, or look online! I recommend using a tequila liqueur, but it is also phenomenal with normal tequila!

    Good morning Pati. I just read the recipe for this shake. If it’s anything like the other recipes in your first book, I’ll be hooked. I mentioned to you before, how much I truly loved your first book. I couldn’t stop trying the different recipes out. I can’t wait for your 2nd book. Thank you again for allowing people to experience your way of cooking. You are an excellent teacher!!!

    Hola Pati,
    The only kind of liqueur I really enjoy is “baileys irish”. That’s more my speed. But this shake sounds like it would be just as good and I’ll have to give it a try. But I must find Agavero first. Thanks for the recipe.
