Iron Chef Bobby Flay shook my world the other night. All it took was a sip of one of the new spiked milkshakes now being served at Bobby’s Burger Palace in Lake Grove. I tried two and found them about as amazing as guilty pleasures get. But you have to be of drinking age to imbibe, since anyone under 35 is automatically carded. (The place has been serving Margaritas, wine and beer since day one).
My favorite shake flavor was mocha Kahlua vodka, but vanilla caramel bourbon ran a close second. The elixir also comes in pineapple coconut rum flavor. Each one costs $7.50 and packs who knows how many calories (11 ounces of ice cream and 3 ounces of alcohol go into a single 16-ounce shake). If you're worried, you can always share one or drink a little and take the rest home.
Bobby's Burger Palace is at 355 Smith Haven Mall, Lake Grove, 631-382-9590, bobbysburgerpalace.com.
