The spiked shake
Abbey Burger Bistro, 1041 Marshall St., 443-453-9698, abbeyburgerbistro.com.
At this bustling Federal Hill eatery, burger toppings run the gamut from crabmeat to an egg, sunny side up. Their milkshakes are equally kicky.
"We use three to four scoops of Gifford's ice cream in our spiked shakes," says co-manager James Hollands. "The bartenders make them using an old-fashioned milkshake machine."
The Berger shake, made with fudgy Berger cookies, has numerous fans, he says. The recipe also blends vanilla ice cream, Stoli Vanilla and Godiva liqueurs. Other shake flavors include the Creamsicle (the ingredients include whipped cream, flavored vodka and orange juice) and the Incredible Hulk (pistachio ice cream, Gran Marnier and brownie chunks). "Yes, we do card if you order the shakes," says Hollands. "But we can make nonalcoholic versions."
