We know what you’re thinking: a milk shake sounds really good right about now. Fortunately for all of us, Las Vegas is chock full of great burger joints, and you can’t have a great burger without a great shake. Feel free to drink your way through this list of the tastiest milk shakes in town.
Captain Crunch Shake (KGB)
Imagine that satisfyingly sweet cereal-and-milk taste amplified with thick, creamy texture and extra shots of the Cap’n’s almost-peanut-butter flavor. This unique combination is a meal by itself. Harrah’s, 800-214-9110.
Oreo Express Shake (Serendipity 3)
Cookies and cream seems like one of the most standard milk shake flavor combinations, but nobody does it quite like Serendipity, which uses crispy Oreo bits to saturate your taste buds. Caesars Palace, 731-7373.
Coffee Chocolate Pudding Shake (Gordon Ramsay BurGR)
BurGR’s custard-y ice cream and pudding hybrid shakes must be consumed to be understood. This blend—coffee ice cream and chocolate hazelnut pudding—is our favorite. Planet Hollywood, 785-5555.
Creamsicle Shake (BLT Burger)
The Mirage burger joint offers a host of tasty shakes, but the combination of vanilla ice cream and orange sorbet pushes the Creamsicle to the top of the list—a perfectly sweet, refreshing treat. Mirage, 792-7888.
Butterscotch Shake (Strip Burger)
Didn’t you used to get a butterscotch dip cone at Dairy Queen as a kid? This is the milk shake version, rich with caramel-y, candy-ish goodness sure to induce nostalgic enjoyment. Fashion Show, 737-8747.
Drunken Monkey Shake (Holsteins)
This is one naughty little monkey, an icy blend of ice cream, Reese’s peanut butter cups, banana, a dash of malt for richness and a sweet, boozy kick from hazelnut liqueur Frangelico. Cosmopolitan, 698-7940.
Salted Caramel Pretzel Shake (Steak ’n Shake)
This burger shack might be the last place you’d expect to find such refined flavors, but this is a salty-sweet masterpiece, topped with a crunchy crown of bonus pretzel bits. South Point, 796-7111.
Cherry Chocolate Thunder Shake (I Love Burgers)
Firing on all flavor cylinders, this chocolaty creation is anchored in deep, rich sweetness and enhanced by cherry whiskey for an indulgent kick. It might change your life. Town Square, 675-7800.
