German Chocolate Adult Milkshake Demonstrated by Jason Boso of Twisted Root Burger Co.

When it comes to combining ingredients in the kitchen, sometimes it works and well, sometimes it doesn't. A pie plate salad--a combination of lemon jello and mixed vegetables--would be an example of the latter. Don't even try to Google image it. Trust us, it's not a pretty sight. A pretty sight would be anything involving ice cream and liquor. No need to Google image this delicious concoction, photos to follow after the jump.

Last week, Jason Boso demonstrated Cowboy Chow's Mashed Tater Parfait and this week he's showing City of Aters that not all milkshakes are meant for children. This time we visited the kitchen in his Deep Ellum burger joint, Twisted Root Burger Co. Luckily for us, Mr. Boso did not make a pie plate salad, but he did pair two of our favorites things--vanilla frozen custard and Malibu Rum with whip cream on top. OK, three of our favorite things.

For today's AFI, we share with you the behind the scenes making of Twisted Root's German Chocolate Adult Milkshake.

Ingredients: 12 oz. Chef Steve's vanilla frozen custard ( you can substitute this with two scoops of vanilla ice cream) ½ tbsp. of shredded coconut ½ tbsp. finely chopped pecans 1 oz. Malibu Rum ½ oz. Franjelico ½ oz. Hershey's chocolate syrup

Step 1: Toast nuts and coconut together in a skillet on medium heat until the coconut is a light to medium brown. This usually takes around five minutes.

Step 2: Combine the custard or vanilla ice cream, Malibu Rum and Franjelico in a blender and blend until smooth.

Step 3: Drizzle Hershey's syrup into a glass. Then pour the blended ingredients into the glass.

Step 4: Garnish with the toasted coconuts and pecans and whip cream on top.
