Adam has been a mainstay of America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Illustrated Magazine for more than a decade, providing both persnickety, insightful recipe testing as well as no-nonsense reporting on kitchen equipment and tools. If he offered me a spoonful of his Peach Shake with Brandy and Nutmeg or a sip of the Dead Eye Mocha Shake, I would run across multiple lanes of rush hour traffic just for a taste.

Adam Ried has brought the milkshake deliciously into the 21st century. And if you think milkshakes are just for kids, think again. When the children in my house are asleep, it's time for Chocolate-Guinness Shake.

Who doesn’t love a milkshake? Thick, frosty, creamy joy in a glass, no matter what the flavor. Dependable vanilla. Trustworthy chocolate. Reliable Strawberry.  Orange Blossom and Honey.  Date, Buttermilk, and Ginger.  Chocolate Earl Grey.

Come again?
