Elizabeth’s “I Swear to Do Better” Jar for Season 3 (through Episode 16):


Caramel Flan Shaketini

Caramel Flan Shaketini

In Season 2, Episode 22, TOW the Two Parties, the gang decides to throw a party for Rachel’s birthday. Monica’s chair of the Food Committee and suggests they poach a salmon. Everyone says it’s too fancy, but Monica ultimately wins. Later on in the episode, you can clearly see the poached salmon on the kitchen table during the party. Another thing you see?

A flan.

That’s right, instead of a birthday cake, Monica’s made a birthday flan. “Happy Birthday, Rachel! Here’s some goo!”

We decided to search the internet for flan-inspired cocktails, and we came across this one which is basically a dessert all on its own. Maybe Monica could whip up a round to replace the flan that was smooshed by the rogue volleyball? Here’s our take on this very adult milkshake.



  • 1.5 ounces caramel vodka

  • 1.2 ounce Fireball or other cinnamon-flavored liqueur

  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream/custard

  • 1 ounce milk (cow, almond, etc.)

  • Splash of orange juice

  • 2 ice cubes

  • Whipped cream and cinnamon for garnish

  1. Blend everything but the whipped cream and cinnamon in a blender until smooth.

  2. Pour into your favorite adult milkshake vessel and top with whipped cream and cinnamon.
