But first, a story about the milkshake and its existence!
It will come as a surprise to you but in the 1800s, the term ‘milkshakes’ referred to a blend which was more like an eggnog prepared with eggs and whisky, pretty much not suitable for children. Until 1911, whipping up a milkshake was not as easy as it today is, they used their hands to mix together ice cream, syrup and sugar to prepare this beverage. Thanks to Hamilton, the ‘drink mixers’ were developed, which are popular till today and has made mixing beverages simple and effortless. By 1922, the milkshake reached out to the heart of millions worldwide and everyone started to enjoy it. And then, the cool ‘blenders’ came into being and made life easier. By 1950s, milkshakes were officially a part of almost every restaurant’s food menu. Till date, we all can’t get enough of this popular drink.
