If you haven't had the miso butterscotch milkshake from Allium yet, then you won't yet understand our excitement at having the recipe for this delicious concoction. Better yet, it's incredibly easy to make, especially if you're like us and keep a jar of miso in the fridge at all times.

The milkshake, created by chef Kevin Hickey, is the perfect balance of salty and sweet. It's on the dessert menu, but you can also just go into the bar and get one. Or, whip up a batch at home this weekend.
