RECIPE: Johnny B. Good’s Diner’s homemade Irish creme adult milkshake

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — When you walk into Johnny B. Good’s Diner, located at 738 Lincoln Ave. in downtown Steamboat Springs, you’re transported back in time. 

The ’50s-style diner is decorated wall to wall with black-and-white photos of old Hollywood stars, like Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, and has the tiled floor, red booths and serving counter of a bygone era.

The menu includes a favorite 1950s order for teenagers enjoying a night out: a burger, fries and a milkshake.

While Johnny B. Good’s offers all types of milkshakes, they’ve made a special menu for their adult patrons. And the main feature is their homemade Irish Crème, which is available year-round on their “Cocktail Corner” menu. 

But if milkshakes aren’t your idea of a good way to have whiskey, Johnny B. Good’s also offers it in coffee and shot form. 


The exact recipe is a house secret, but here’s the main things needed to make Irish crème.

  • Lots of whiskey
  • Sweet and condensed milk
  • Chocolate
  • Instant coffee
  • Lots of cream
Steamboat Sips


  • Mix together

  • Garnish with cherry (optional)
