The Vanilla Smooth – Boat Drinks Recipe

After just one sip, you’ll be singing naked in the backyard.

Get ready to feel like a kid again, because this boat drink recipe will take you back to the days when a vanilla milkshake was the best treat in the world. Only this treat is for adults and tastes like a million bucks.

This frozen cocktail is called the Vanilla Smooth, which is what all the girls called me in collage. Kidding. The cocktail includes vanilla rum, Bailey’s, Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur and delicious vanilla ice cream. Now you can see where the name comes from and why it’s going to make your head spin with pleasurable taste.

Enjoy the drink Castaways!
