I’ve got to be honest, though. The real reason I picked this is because Tom’s parent’s were recently visiting, and Tom’s mom requested a “yummy” drink. I can’t think of anything that makes a drink yummier than ice cream.


Well, maybe chocolate would make it yummier, but I had fresh raspberries and some vanilla ice cream on hand, so we whipped these up.



“It’s delicious.”

“I thought so. Is it sweet?”

“Surprisingly, no.”

The Verdict: Delicious

From The Tasting Notes –

Even though this drink looks like it would taste like a raspberry shake, it didn’t. It wasn’t overly sweet and you could definitely taste the Galliano. There was a nice fresh raspberry flavor and it was very creamy. Sort of a Midwestern version of a tropical drink. It was different and delicious. And very pink!
