Red Robin Restaurant Copycat Recipe
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 ounces milk
14 ounces vanilla ice cream
1 tablespoon Graham Cracker crumbs, for garnish
whipped cream, for garnish
gingersnap cookies, for garnish
Prepare the Gingerbread Syrup: In a medium saucepan, mix the water, sugar, ginger, vanilla extract and cinnamon. The pan's size is crucial, because if it is too small the concoction may bubble over. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat and allow it to simmer for 15 minutes. Do not cover the pan. Place the syrup in a container with a lid covering it.
Blend the Milkshake: Blend 1 1/2 ounces of the gingerbread syrup, the milk and ice cream.
Place graham cracker crumbs, whipped cream and gingersnap on top of the drink as desired.
