Here at Boston Burger Company, we take what normal people call “milkshakes” and turn them into our world famous #freakfrappes. What’s the difference you ask? They’re big, they’re bold, and they’re -- you guessed it -- freaky. Each month we have a new special centered around a food trend, holiday, season, or just whatever the staff is in the mood for. (Side note: Got an idea for us? Shoot us an email here.)
For the month of July, you can’t go wrong with an Independence Day theme. In the land of the free, we’re all granted the pursuit of life, liberty, and crazy desserts. And this one is more than just that. It’s a whole lot of delicious.
We call this one the Red, White, and BOOM! It’s a shortbread cookie flavored frappe topped with a giant slab of blueberry cheesecake and garnished with raspberry and blackberry jelly candies, Swedish fish, and rock candy. That rock candy looks a bit like fireworks, doesn’t it? Yeah, we planned that.
Want to make Boston Burger Company’s Red, White, and BOOM #freakfrappe at home? Today’s your lucky day because we’re giving you the recipe. A bunch of these would be a hit at your July 4th cookout, so get out those blenders and whip this UP!
Red, White, and BOOM #FreakFrappe
14 oz. vanilla ice cream
1.5 oz shortbread cookie syrup (or just toss in a couple of cookies!)
1 oz. strawberry syrup
Raspberry & Blackberry candies
Spread a thick layer of vanilla frosting around the rim of a pint glass. Pro-tip: The thicker the layer, the better the candy will stick. Place berry candies around rim. Swirl strawberry syrup on the inside of the pint glass. Set aside.
In a blender, blend ice cream and shortbread syrup. If you don’t want to buy the syrup, just toss a few cookies in the blender to give it that cookie flavor.
Drizzle more strawberry syrup onto a plate. Add a small amount of vanilla frosting in the center of the plate and place pint glass on top to set.
Pour frappe into the pint glass and place the cheesecake on top. Top cheesecake with whipped cream.
Decorate the frappe and plate with extra whipped cream, rock candy, and Swedish fish. Drizzle with more strawberry syrup. ENJOY!
