Holsteins Shakes & Buns is a hamburger restaurant in Costa Mesa. The burgers are good, but don’t skip the alcohol-spiked milkshakes—Holsteins’ most fun-filled item outside of the liquid nitrogen meringues—which exist in flavors such as Candy Cane and a fruity vegan take made with coconut sorbet. Though you could leave out the booze, the alcohol—whether it’s the marshmallow vodka in the S’Mores shake or the Frangelico in the Nutella Crunch—is essential in cutting through the richness. You'll realize after you finish the glass how dangerous Holstein’s shakes are. Not because of the alcohol (which can hardly be tasted or felt), but because all milkshakes are mostly ice cream. So no matter how young-at-heart Holstein’s will make you feel, those calories are still going to affix themselves somewhere permanent on your body.
