How To Draw A Milkshake  

Is it possible to find someone who doesn’t like milkshakes? The world of beverages is extremely diverse and full of creativity due to the birth of many new drinks, unique combinations of ingredients, and processing methods. Among them, milkshakes are popular with many diners, especially young people. Nowadays, when we look at the menus of bars, cafes, etc., we often see milkshakes. Before we start learning how to draw a milkshake, let’s take a moment to understand the origin of milkshakes. A milkshake is a mixture of ice cream, milk, chocolate, fruit, and vanilla syrup.

Originating in America in 1885, a milkshake at that time was an adult drink consisting of eggs and whiskey. Then the blender was invented, and by 1950, milkshakes had become popular and appeared on the menus of restaurants, bars, or even food stalls, served in large glasses with straws. An umbrella, or strawberry, is placed on the side of the glass. When making this kind of milk, never add ice to the milkshake. Ice will break down the rich taste of milk and cream. Around the world, milkshakes are enjoyed in many different and quite unique ways. In Singapore, people use cakes to top the milkshake to enhance the flavor. Some cafes in the US serve milkshakes with traditional hamburgers, potatoes, and cocktails.
