The Dirty De Leche is just one of four new boozy shakes available at The Ruckus in Shorewood.

Kick off the great Milwaukee summer with a boozy shake from The Ruckus

It might be rainy and dreary today. But our great Milwaukee summer is coming, and it's the perfect time for a great many things, from Sunday Fundays on the patio with friends to playing volleyball at Bradford Beach, picnicking at a local park or spending 10 glorious days listening to music at Summerfest (which is currently just a scant five weeks away).

As of this week you can add another summer treat to your list: spiked milkshakes from The Ruckus, 4144 N. Oakland Ave.

These boozy new offerings come in four flavors:

  • Pina colada: with coconut spiced rum and fresh pineapple
  • Old fashioned: with bourbon, orange bitters and cherry simple syrup
  • Dirty De Leche: featuring tequila, spiced fudge, salted caramel and mexican chocolate crumbles
  • The ChaCha: a creamy treat complete with Rumchata and salted caramel

Each shake is made with The Ruckus's fresh-spun vanilla ice cream and will sell for $6.50.

"From the beginning we created The Ruckus to be a place for kids big or small," notes Scott Schwebel, vice president of brand, marketing and retail. "And boozy shakes are a really fun way to offer those bigger kids a really delicious fun adult treat."

Schwebel says these offerings are just the start of what will become a series of booze-infused treats at the family-friendly burger stand.

The Ruckus, which is currently open weekdays from 4 to 9 p.m., will launch its new summer hours on Friday May 25. Beginning Friday, hours will be Monday through Thursday from 3 to 8 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
