If you’re in for a good laugh, try watching Cooking Channel’s “Unique Sweets.” You’ll meet the besties Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark, who also host their own Web series “Classy Ladies with Alie & Georgia.” In this show, they wear pretty dresses, pretend to be classy, and take different culinary lessons in each episode.
Alie is a staff writer for the LA Times, while Georgia Hardstark worked as a receptionist. Their chemistry and sense of humor has led them to become famous with their viral how-to video about a farcical cocktail recipe they aptly named as the “McNuggetini.”
We asked these fun and witty girls for a recipe that they think best represent the Winter season. They handed us their recipe for “Spiced Bourbon Pumpkin Milkshake.” From the name itself, you’d know it’s the type of milk you’ll want to curl up in bed and keep yourself warm.
Spiced Bourbon Pumpkin Milkshake
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup roasted or canned pumpkin
3 oz bourbon
1/3 cup half-and-half
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon crushed cloves
1. Add the ice cream, pumpkin, bourbon, half-and-half, maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice to a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with a pinch of crushed cloves for aroma. Sip. Feel joy. Give thanks that bikini season is a few months away.
