National Coffee Milkshake Day is today so treat yourself to a grown up milkshake

What's not to like about a milkshake with a dose of caffeine? These days it seems like there is a national food day for everything but since I love food I figure why not celebrate them even if they seem a bit ridiculous! Today is National Coffee Milkshake Day. You can make a delicious, simple coffee milkshake at home, spike it with a little liqueur and make it a grown-up milkshake or go to your local Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks and order one - whatever strikes your fancy!
