You might not have all the ingredients for a killer boozy milkshake laying around at home, but luckily there are several places in the city where you can pop a squat and enjoy one.

This farm-to-table diner is grounded in good people eating good food. And good food always includes a little liquor. With the classic B52, a Kahlua, Bailey’s, and Grand Marnier-infused shake and the Chocolate Bourbon shake, Fable Diner is also offering rotating seasonal shakes. Right now you can get a Vanilla shake with Sunshine Orange Spiced liquer and a house-made nutmeg whipped cream to top it off.

The Templeton will transport you to the days of waking up on a Saturday morning to the smell of your mom’s pancakes. Nothing beats mom’s pancakes right? Well, at The Templeton, you can relive those days with an added pick me up. Captain Peanut, Whiskey Espresso, and Chocolate Hazelnut are just a few of the choices. The best part? They can be made both boozy and non-alcoholic.

The “nerdiest” bar in Vancouver may not seem so nerdy after a couple of spiked concoctions. A boozy banana pie milkshake with Banana Bols, vanilla vodka, ice cream mix, and a brown sugar and graham cracker rimmed glass will definitely get your mouth to water. With a name like Tardis Banana Pie, we might just have to have two.
