15 Ways to (Responsibly) Spike Your Shakes
A boozy dessert is a killer way to end any meal, and there’s no easier way to add some liquor to your sweets than by mixin’ it in a milkshake. We remember our first — it was a vanilla caramel bourbon shake. (Drool.) Ever since, it’s been a personal challenge to find the best boozy milkshakes out there, and we won’t stop until our quest is complete.
8. Coffee and Rum With Salty Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans: Forget the late afternoon iced coffee. This milkshake with salty choco-covered coffee beans, dark rum and creme fraiche whipped cream is all you’ll ever need to feed that caffeine craving. (via A Cozy Kitchen)
9. Boozy Chocolate Malt Milkshake: The classic chocolate shake is all grown up! Just mix in some whiskey (or bourbon, or scotch), and finish it off with some good ol’ fashioned malt balls. (via Jessica Gavin)
15. Boozy Lucky Charms with Marshmallow Frosting: At Brit + Co., we love Lucky Charms… a lot. So imagine the excitement, the jubilation and all the other good feelings in the world we felt when we found this. (via How Sweet It is)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
