Cotton Candy Milkshake Shots

A fun, simple and totally delicious cotton candy milkshake shot that everyone will love!


  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream OR cotton candy ice cream
  • 1 1/2 cups cotton candy (any color)
  • 1/2 cup cold milk, plus more if needed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4-1/2 cup vodka
  • Cotton candy, for garnish
  • Melted white chocolate
  • Sprinkles


  1. To rim the glass with sprinkles, dip each shot glass into melted white chocolate and then roll in sprinkles. Place in the freezer.
  2. In a blender, combine the ice cream, cotton candy, milk, vanilla and vodka (if using). Blend until smooth. Divide the milkshake among 6 shot glasses. Top each with cotton candy and drink immediately.


  • Do not blend the cotton candy colors in the blender—it is not pretty!
  • You can, however, layer 2 or 3 colored and already blended milkshakes in a glass. That is very fun!
