Some calories are just worth their weight, so to speak. So what if you have to squeeze into a bathing suit or pair of swim trunks on the rare occasion. What could be better on a brazen blazing hot summer day than a cold creamy and berry delicious milkshake with a shot of amaretto added? Nuttin’, honey! Let your imagination run as swiftly as your blender: I’d be throwing some Baily’s into this mix. Or even switch out the amaretto with some rum or flavored vodka.

1/4 cup milk
