I’ve had my fancy new blender for a few months now, and I’ve been using it to make all kinds of delicious and healthy smoothies. Very wholesome of me. But this week, things took a turn for the worse. A rather un-wholesome turn, in fact. I made milkshakes. With booze in them. And now I cannot un-learn what I know. At any moment I am a mere push of a button away from a dizzy-ing (literally) array of alcohol-laden, creamy, dreamy milkshakes. This could be very good or very, very bad!
Since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, I wanted to make a milkshake that would be perfect for the occasion. Coffee ice cream with Irish cream and Irish whiskey was the obvious choice. Who knew being a grown up could be so delicious??!!
I really wanted green and white sprinkles to make my Boozy St. Patrick’s Day Milkshake extra special. I looked in three different stores and couldn’t find any. Apparently nobody sells green and white mixed sprinkles. But I didn’t want to give up the idea, and at this point I had become a bit obsessed with it (personality
flaw quirk). Frustrated, I came home and remembered that I had left over Christmas sprinkles in my pantry. So I just picked out the red ones and BOOM – green and white sprinkles. All my problems were solved! That sounds lame, right? I probably shouldn’t tell you guys these stories. You’ll think this is what I spend my Friday and Saturday nights doing – sorting sprinkles by color. But in my defense, it was a Thursday night…..
