Those of us who are 21+ may have indulged in a boozy milkshake spiked with hard liquor, but now a local restaurant chain is tempting our palates with wine milkshakes. Yes, wine milkshakes are being blended up at select area Counter Burger locations.

We're told the vino cuts some of the rich sweetness of the shake, with the taste kicking off more milkshake-y, with a wine finish. Wine enthusiasts, you may have your own category of terms to describe tasting these blends--you may end up with whipped cream on your nose, though, if you work too hard getting a whiff of the nose. Better use the straw, oenophiles.

Here are the three flavors:

- Pinot Noir - The most popular wine shake. Pinot Noir, cherries, chocolate and vanilla ice cream
- Sweet Peach - Tastes like a peach bellini! Sweet white wine with fresh peach nectar and vanilla ice cream
- Mimosa - A twist on a brunch classic and like a boozy orange Creamsicle. Splash of white sparkling wine, orange juice and vanilla ice cream
