When we were kids, Halloween meant trick or treating and way too much candy. Now, as adults, we get to celebrate with cocktails!
Public House, a gastropub in Chicago, created a Halloween-themed cake shake offered all of October and appropriately named, “Monster Mash.” Creator of the Monster Mash Cake Shake and Corporate Pastry Chef, Jimmy MacMillan says, “Every month I try to create a new cake shake flavor that tastes better than the last and a little more extreme than the next,” said Chef MacMillan. “Given the creative aspect behind the October holiday, it was easy to make this one an outrageous-looking treat with no boundaries.” The insta-famous cake shake follows the over-the-top profile Public House’s staple cake shakes have including a giant piece of cake placed on top of the glass. Providing the best of both worlds (chocolate and beer) “Monster Mash” is made with a seasonal Schlafly’s Pumpkin Ale and mixed with chocolate ice cream and a piece of cake.
