I think the last time I had a milkshake was in the early 1980s at the White Palace Restaurant in Purcellville, Virginia. The building is the oldest standing structure in the town, built in 1908. It was originally Purcellville's Town Hall and Post Office. In the 1920s it became an ice cream parlor. You can make this delicious milkshake as if it were made at an old fashioned soda fountain.

Chocolate syrup
4 large scoops coffee ice cream
1 cup whole milk
1 T espresso powder
1 T chocolate syrup
1 t pure vanilla extract

Whipped cream
Chocolate shavings

Drizzle some chocolate syrup in two milk shake glasses or tall glasses. 
Place in refrigerator while making milkshakes.

In a milkshake blender or regular blender, add the ice cream, milk, espresso powder, chocolate syrup, and vanilla extract.
Pulse until smooth.

Pour into the two glasses and top with whipped cream and finish with a few dark chocolate shavings or chocolate sprinkles.
