Is there any drink more iconic than the milkshake? It’s hard to argue against it. Now that the soda fountains of the 20th century are roaring back into style, we can’t get enough of a good milkshake or malt.
The first milkshake was reportedly made by a Walgreens employee, Ivar "Pop" Coulson. He updated the pharmacy’s "chocolate malt beverage" by adding a scoop of ice cream, and the lives of ice cream lovers, sweet tooths, and soda fountains were forever changed. Heck, the blender was invented in 1922 by Stephen Poplawski just to mix up milkshakes — who knew?
Click ahead to find out how to make soda-fountain-worthy milkshakes at home (there are some boozy ones in there, too!), with recipes from Martin, restaurants, and soda fountains across the country, and from our Culinary Content Network.
