There's nothing better than an ice cold milkshake on a hot summer day, and given the way this summer has been trending, this list might come in handy.

So without further ado, here are three milkshake spots that definitely bring all the Seattleites to the yard.

Hot Cakes
Hot Cakes is known for their molten cakes, but their shakes are worth the visit alone. With flavors like Lavender Lemon Curd, PB S'more Malt, Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate, they also step it up a notch with their "Spirited Shakes" which include adult ingredients like their Druken Sailor featuring whiskey or their Cherry Bomb that features brandy and vodka.

Kidd Valley
This formidable PNW fast food chain touts both a standard shake menu (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, pineapple) as well as a constantly rotating seasonal offering which can mean anything from pina colada to pumpkin, depending on the time of year. Find the Kidd Valley location near you with their handy locator.

Tipsy Cow
Located in downtown Redmond, the Tipsy Cow is your best bet for the kind of milkshake to write home about. Offerings here include Bananas Foster, Salted Caramel, Caffe Mochashake and more. You might to plan on two straws on that shake, Tipsy Cow's are quite indulgent.
