When the term "milkshake" was first used in print in 1885, milkshakes were an alcoholic whiskey drink. However, by 1900 the term referred to wholesome drinks made with chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla syrups. We have taken this idea to treat you to a rich almond milkshake topped with marshmallows, smooth and plentiful. And in keeping with the milkshake’s origins we can also add a shot of a true American legend... Makers Mark Bourbon Whiskey. £8.50 each (without Whisky) / £14.00 each (with Whisky).
Constance Spry, and Chef Rosemary Hume, both principals of the Cordon Bleu Cookery School in London, are credited with the invention of the popular Coronation Chicken dish, preparing it for the banquet of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
