Boozy Peaches and Cream Milkshake ~ Savory Simple

You ever just have one of those days?  I know you have. Where it feels like everything is going wrong. Friday was one of those days for me.  A 30 minute meeting turned into 5 hours.  I didn’t get a chance to run all of my errands.   My oven broke.  MY OVEN BROKE.  This might be the first time I’ve missed apartment living.  Where’s maintenance???  We have to fix this crap?  Crap.

There’s only one thing to do on a day like this: ice cream.  Make that two things: ice cream and alcohol. This boozy peaches and cream milkshake is like a party in your mouth, and it takes the edge off those days.  Bottoms up!

Boozy Peaches and Cream Milkshake
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 large or 2 small milkshakes
  • 2 large very ripe peaches
  • 1 cup full-fat vanilla ice cream
  • 1 ounce dark rum (or more to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Slice the peaches in half and remove the pit.
  2. With very clean hands, squeeze the juice and pulp into a blender (this will only work with a very ripe peach). Most of the skin will stay in your hands. Alternately, you can blanch and peel the peaches.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.

    Looks and sounds good.

    A broken oven is almost as bad as a broken limb…I’m so sorry!
    Good thing you had these milkshakes on hand. Dark rum and peaches, Yes!

  • Natalia@HotCheap&Easy

    Oooh, seasonal virtue and boozy decadence. Hurray!

  • Averie @ Averie Cooks

    gorgeous pics – and recipe! love the orange-striped straws (which are not easy to find – i was looking for red/white ones and had to do mail order – for straws!)

    I could guzzle this shake!

    • Savory Simple

      I found them at Crate and Barrel! Sur la Table has the red/white straws.

  • Mad Dog

    It’s 32º C outside and humid – so yes please, I’d love a peaches and cream milk shake ;-)

  • melissa@the hungry artist

    Sounds so amazing. I love frozen treats in the summer–especially boozy ones!

  • Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel

    Jen, I’m so sorry your day was so crappy! I’m sure this boozilicious milkshake helped though :) when ovens break, it’s AWFUL. I remember when mine broke a couple months back, I cried. Literally. So terrible. But hang in there! I’m sure it’s fixable, like mine was, and before you know it, everything will be back to normal.

  • Laura (Tutti Dolci)

    A broken oven?! That’s a tragedy indeed, I’m glad you have some ice cream to help you cope in the meantime – this milkshake looks fantastic!

  • Laura Dembowski

    Oooh, yum! I haven’t had a milkshake in a long time and this looks great. Sorry to hear about your oven. One of mine went out in January, thankfully we have a double oven. If you’re buying a new one, do a lot of research, I’m still not very happy with mine.

  • amy @ fearless homemaker

    Sorry to hear about the bad day, but it definitely looks like this would make any bad day better. YUM!

  • yummychunklet

    Um, yum! You had me at boozy!

  • Carly @ Snack Therapy

    Ice cream + Alcohol = All problems miraculously fixed. YUM!

  • Anne@FromMySweetHeart

    OH NO!!!! I am so sorry about you oven, that is awful:(. I hope these at least helped make you feel better for a night, and I hope it gets fixed inexpensive and soon.

  • Suzanne perazzini

    I hope your day ended well. Add rum to anything and I will drink it and this sounds super delicious.

  • Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious

    Dude that sucks about that long ass meeting and the broken oven at least you have alcohol to make it better!

  • Jess

    Looks so good! I want one!!!!!

  • Liz

    Food bloggers CANNOT be without their ovens! I’m so sorry…and hope it is fixed ASAP! Till then a big slosh of rum in an amazing peach milkshake will numb the pain! xo

  • kitchenriffs

    Broken oven? That’s the pits. But what’s not the pits is this boozy milkshake – looks terrific! I think Gosling’s dark rum would be my rum of choice in this – it has a very slight root beer flavor, but I think it’d work OK with the peaches, and would definitely go with the ice cream. Good stuff – thanks.

  • Christina @ Sweet Pea’s Kitchen

    Oh we have all had one of those days!! That really sucks that your oven broke…not sure what I would do! Ha! This milkshake sounds dreamy! :)

  • kyleen

    I’m sorry to hear about your day! But I bet this drink had a palliative effect on your mood. (<–sorry, trying to practice using them SAT vocabulary words, ha). You had me at boozy.

  • Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    So sorry to hear that your oven broke! But this shake looks amazingly good, like it could soothe any raw nerves especially with the boozy hit! ;)

  • Anna @ The Littlest Anchovy

    Rum and Peaches! One of my favourite combinations – I have big plans for these two when peaches are in season here in Australia. This shake is definitely on the list!

  • Marta @ What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today?

    It has to be delicious. I need to find my blender and try it.

  • Kristen

    i’m sorry about your day but this shake is brilliant!

  • Bill

    That sounds awesome – I love peaches and the idea of adding them *and* booze together in a milkshake? Sounds like the perfect ‘shitty day’ antidote!

  • Baking Serendipity

    Milkshakes and booze are the exact perfect way to fix bad days. I hope your oven is fixed soon…I know I’d go nuts without mine!

  • Cassie

    Peaches + booze = I’m in. Love this!!

    oh, Jen, so sorry to hear about your day and I hope you had your oven fixed by now. The milkshake sounds like a perfect end to a Friday

  • kristy @ the wicked noodle

    I was going to make fresh peach milkshakes the other day and I never got around to it. I’m pretty sure that’s because I was meant to see your version first, which is clearly so much better with the booze!

    Sorry about your oven :(

    Can I use canned peaches?? I’m not the best at picking out fruit but I need this drink tonight. Only one day off this week and I’m drinking my way into it. HOPE YOUR WEEK GET BETTER.

    • Jennifer Farley

      You sure can, just keep in mind that canned peaches are sweeter so the final milkshake will be sweeter.

  • Shirley @ gfe & All Gluten-Free Desserts

    Jen–I just featured this recipe on I know folks are going to love it! We all have those days and most of us have peaches ripening the rest of the way on our counters (or peach trees if we’re lucky!) right now. :-)

    Thanks for a great recipe! I can never have enough milkshake recipes … especially boozy ones. ;-)

    • Jennifer Farley

      Thank you so much!
