Because there's room in this nation for more than one questionable milkshake combination, the Red Robin burger chain has unleashed a wine-and-fruit milkshake upon its spring menus: According to a press release, the Mango Moscato Wine Shake combines Moscato, SKYY Infusions Moscato vodka, mango puree, and vanilla soft-serve ice cream, in what the restaurant is calling a foray into "unique mixology." The accompanying photo also reveals the recipe calls for a dollop of whipped cream and drizzled syrup, signaling that cocktail aficionados probably won't be lining up for the drink: USA Todayhilariously describes the Moscato milkshake's target demographic as "35- to 49-year-old moms in need of a break."

Red Robin's existing "Adults Only Boozy Shake" menu already featured milkshakes made with Baileys Irish Cream, beer, and Kahlua; the chain plans to roll out the Moscato version at all 490 U.S. locations.
