One year ago today at just about this time of day... I posted my first blog post. You can read by clicking here. I started the post off "Can I really Blog?"
Why yes I can!
1 yr later look at the things I have done! Almost 300 recipes, building relationships with companies like King Arthur Flour, Lotus Bakeries, Pete and Gerry's Eggs, Green Mountain Coffee, Kitchen Aid, Le Creuset, Mystic Blue Spice, and Door to Door Organics. Tons of new friends. And improved baking and cooking skills!
What a fun year it has been!
Now I am taking the weekend to celebrate my "Blog Birthday" and to kick it off...
Cheers to a grown up milk shake!
I teamed up with a group of amazing blogging ladies this week to celebrate our love for cocktails. Cocktail week has a been a blast. I kicked my week off with this Raspberry Thyme Tom Collins. We have had everything from, Amaretto Sours, Peach Pie Prosecco "Palmers", Blueberry Smash Cocktail, Raging Aztec Frappe, Raspberry Mojitos,... the list goes on and on, we had 14 new cocktail recipes shared between the group of us!!
Now to end the week....
What better way than to celebrate a blog birthday during cocktail week than a grown up milk shake that tastes like birthday cake?
Originally I was going to do a "Funfetti Martini"... I made one... I didn't like it! I could have blogged it but why blog something that made me cringe!? Remember my distaste for most booze? Vodka is a toughy. I try to enjoy it... Well I think I have found a way to like it! This milk shake knocked my socks off. What a fun treat!
Make a virgin one for the kiddos and they will love it as well.... Sprinkles and frosting just make everything fun!
A Grownup Funfetti Milkshake
1 cup of vanilla ice ream ( OR if you can find it cake batter ice cream)
1 cup milk
1-2 oz white chocolate Godiva liquor
1-2 oz Cake flavored vodka ( I use Pinnacle)
1/4 cup vanilla frosting
2 tbs of sprinkles
In a blender combine all of your ingredients together.
With your cup rim the glass with frosting. dip into sprinkles creating a "funfetti" rim. Pour milk shake into your prepared glass. Pipe additional frosting on top and sprinkle with remaining sprinkles.
Check out some of these other cocktails that my friends have shared through out the week. Also don't forget to check out Megan's giveaway... A new Kitchen Aid blender!! You could whip one of these milkshakes with it....
