Vanilla ice cream is a natural partner for dark, Grade B syrup: simple and bracingly cold, with overlapping layers of sweetness, they're at their best blended together in a milkshake.
- 1⁄4 cup pure maple syrup, plus more for serving (optional)
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 pint vanilla ice cream
Puree ingredients until smooth; pour into serving glasses and drizzle with more syrup, if you like.
