If your follower count has started to stagnate — or if you’re just in the mood for some of the best milkshakes around — Stone Fire is whipping up your perfect fix. Their trio of humongous dessert beverages are perfect for sharing, but a true romantic will splurge to try all of these wonderful concoctions.
First off: Yes, strangers will come up to ask about what was just placed in front of you. Served in mason … I want to say “jugs,” these desserts are a almost a main course in and of themselves. The size, color, and incredible ornateness of them are just a perfect storm of eye-catching photogeneity. Please be courteous; allow others to Instagram your dessert as you would want to Instagram theirs. That said, Instagram with your eyes, folks. Hands off.
Secondly, pick your poison. Stone Fire typically offers three varieties of milkshake: Campfire S’mores, Strawberry Cake, and “PB&J Jambar.
The Campfire S’mores Shake (pictured above) is made with chocolate ice cream and a s’mores cookie, topped with whipped cream and toasted mini-marshmallows and marshmallow fluff, all drizzled with chocolate syrup. The cookie alone would be a worthy dessert option, but all together it becomes clear that the second straw is intended not for sharing, but for fending off your jealous dinner guests.
The Strawberry Cake Shake starts with a classic strawberry ice cream milkshake and then adds marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, sliced fresh strawberries, strawberry drizzle, a dusting of strawberry powder, and an entire strawberry shortcake ice cream bar. Call it a “starberry shortshake.” Yum.
Typically, Stone Fire’s tres amigos of shakes would be rounded out by the PB&J Jambar, complete with berry drizzles, peanut buttered rim, crushed peanuts, and an actual jambar topper. However, for a special limited time Stone Fire has substituted a more seasonal item, one which shamrock fans will instantly recognize: while supplies last, customers can order a Saint Patrick’s Day special of mint-chocolate-chip ice cream swirled with chocolate syrup, topped with gobs of delicious fluff drizzled in caramel, and loaded up with green M&Ms and classic Andes Chocolate Mints.
Stop in any time to try out one or all of these mind-blowing flavor spectacles. (Just make sure to tag @stonefirerestaurant!)
