Gaillimh Abúckfast! SALT launches new Buckfast Milkshake

The sun is splitting the rocks, Salthill is buzzing and as if that wasn’t reason enough to be on top of the world…SALT Restaurant & Bar has just introduced a brand new Buckfast Milkshake…need we say more!

The Buckfast Delight – which includes Buckfast, whipped vanilla ice-cream, homemade mixed berry jam and whipped cream – has quickly become a firm-favourite in SALT and has been gaining momentum across social media since the milkshake was unveiled on Thursday evening.

Affectionately known as Bucky in the City of the Tribes, it’s no secret that the tonic wine has long been synonymous with Galway. There aren’t many twenty, thirty or forty-somethings in Galway who haven’t sampled the fortified wine in some shape or form over the years but the team at SALT are willing to bet that very few have tasted it in a milkshake!

Paired with SALT’s homemade mixed berry jam in the Buckfast Delight, the milkshake is maroon and white in colour, just in time for the Leinster Hurling Final Replay this Sunday. But, as the Tribesmen prepare to face the Cats this weekend, there’s just one question on everyone’s lips…will it be the Tribesmen or the Cats who get the cream on Sunday evening? Gaillimh Abúckfast!
