Spiked milkshakes are gaining popularity all over New York City, and we've rounded up the sweetest, coldest and, of course, booziest for you to cool down with in the summer humidity. Forget phrosties (RIP); boozy milkshakes are here to stay. The Super Shake at Cafe Lalo Photo Credit: Cafe Lalo The cafe Europeans would love to have in Europe, this charming Upper West Side spot serves a menu of spiked milkshakes, with all recipes created in-house. The most popular is the Super Shake, a dessert take on the White Russian.

Popular combinations spike the classic shake with Bailey's, amaretto, Pama (pomegranate liqueur) or pretty much anything off the bar (ask for half a shot of bourbon and half a shot of amaretto for a tasty combo). The alcohol is poured on the bottom with the shake on top and then mixed with a spoon so your sips get boozier as you go. $13, 33 W.
