We do enjoy drinks like this TALL, so making the recipe as given gave us 2 drinks & a bit extra for each of us ~ That's not a complaint, just an observation, about the 2 of us gluttons! Anyway, we thoroughly enjoyed our shakes & will be making them again during the summer! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar Tag]

  1. To make syrup: In a saucepan bring all syrup ingredients except for the lemon juice to a boil over medium high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil for 10 minutes. Stir in lemon juice. Stain syrup. Cover and chill. Can be made one week ahead -- keep chilled. Makes 2 1/2 cups but you only need 1 cup for the milk shakes -- use remainder for another day.
