In honor of the return of Twin Peaks this evening (after a 25 year hiatus!) I wanted to share with you a boozy shake called “The Dale Cooper.” Inspired by Special Agent Dale Cooper’s affinity for coffee and cherry pie, this is one drink you’re going to want to make before the Showtime premier tonight. I hope it’s as good as what Norma serves up at The Double R Diner!
Note: This recipe uses all vegan ingredients, but I’m sure it will also taste great if you go the dairy route.
2 cups vanilla cashew ice cream
1/4 cup cashew milk
1 cup frozen black cherries
2 packets (4 g) decaffeinated instant coffee crystals
1 shot of whiskey
1 graham cracker
Optional Toppings: Crushed graham crackers, whole espresso beans, & vegan whipped cream!
Throw it all in a blender, and blend! Top with crushed graham crackers, whole espresso beans, & whipped cream. Enjoy!
