Kelis' Milkshake Recipe Is Definitely an Ad for Bailey's

It's also weirdly hard to make.

Kelis once shocked fans by revealing that she didn’t have a go-to milkshake recipe. "I don’t think I’ve ever made a milkshake,” Kelis told the Guardian last year in a heartbreaking interview. Well, good news: Apparently the singer does now.

For years, we’ve wondered (well, I have) about what exactly is in Kelis’s milkshake that brings the boys to the yard. It turns out it's probably booze. In a new video that is definitely an ad for Bailey's, Kelis shares an actually pretty convoluted recipe for a chocolate milkshake—one that involves ginger beer, candied ginger, and cayenne pepper, and necessitates the use of a cocktail shaker. Oh, right and Bailey's. It's currently unlisted on Bailey's Vimeo page, but you can watch Kelis go through the recipe here.

The video was released ahead of National Chocolate Milkshake Day—i.e. tomorrow, September 12—which, of course, is not a real holiday.
