Annie Wilson

Shakes Malt Shoppe is one of our favorite things about Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Whether you’re taking a break from the pool or grabbing a couple of scoops after a day in the parks, Shakes Malt Shoppe has a variety of sweets to satisfy everyone.

For adults over the age of 21, Shakes Malt Shoppe even offers shakes with alcohol! There are Creamsicle, Bananas Foster, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Black and White shakes with alcohol and we couldn’t help but give them all a try.

Black and White Irish Baileys – $16.50

Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Sauce, Baileys

The black and white shake is one of our favorites. Every sip offers the perfect blend of vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. The Baileys compliments the creamy, light chocolate flavor.

Creamsicle – $16.50

Orange Blossom Ice Cream, Orange Vodka, Whipped Cream, Candied Orange

This orange creamsicle shake is absolutely amazing. Just like Cabana Bay, this flavor is a classic. The orange blossom ice cream mixed with orange vodka is the perfect combination. The whipped cream on top adds an extra level of creaminess and the candied oranges are a nice touch.

Peanut Butter – $16.50

Chocolate Ice Cream, Peanut Butter Whiskey, Whipped Cream, Peanut Butter Cup

This is the ultimate way to enjoy peanut butter whiskey. The rich flavor of the chocolate ice cream pairs well with the peanut butter flavor of the alcohol.

The peanut butter cup makes a nice garnish, too.

Bananas Foster – $16.50

Salted Caramel Ice Cream, Banana Pudding Ice Cream, and Dark Rum

This is the most unique of the shakes we tried and it packs a punch. The dark rum pairs perfectly with the bold flavors of salted caramel and banana pudding. It’s got a strong taste, but if you like bananas foster, this is a must.

All of the alcoholic shakes come in a plastic souvenir cup. You can also ask for these shakes to be made without the alcohol, too. Of course, we highly recommend all of the items on the menu at Shakes Malt Shoppe, not just these delicious adult shakes. You can read our full review of the rest of the Shake menu here.
