    Here's How To Try Black Tap Milkshakes Without Spending $15

    Because why miss out on all the fun? And why spend all that $$$?

    Everyone's talking about the milkshakes at Black Tap in NYC, and how they're taking the internet by storm (too soon?).

Fortunately, we've come up with a few milkshake recipes that will allow you to make something similar in your own home so you can still share in all the fun.
