I feel like I have a mountain of things to do and not enough time in the day to do them (which I know is how a lot of you feel). Our oldest is finishing up his spring soccer season season this weekend with a tournament (that will be one sport down, one to go), which I am excited about because that means that summer is one step closer.
Point is, the more things I get to check off of my list, the closer summer gets. Our kids have three weeks of school left, including 8th grade field trips picnics, graduation ceremonies and dances, then we'll be free to enjoy summer to it's fullest! I found a cute checklist on Life As Mom for the kids to fill out with all of the fun stuff they want to do this summer. Fingers crossed that we are able to get most of it done.
I was on the hunt for a Memorial Day cocktail and did find a few, but then looked outside and saw the sun (yes I saw the wind too, but I can't feel that from inside) and decided to try my hand at a self invented milkshake.
I must say I did pretty good too. The cherry vodka definitely leaves it mark in the cocktails I've made it with so far (Cherry Crepe, Easter Basket and Surely Not Temple), meaning that I can definitely taste the cherry flavor.
- 1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 ounce cherry vodka
- 1 ounce marshmallow vodka
- 1 ounce milk
- 1/2 ounce blue curacao
- 1/2 ounce grenadine
First put the ice cream, milk and both vodkas in your blender and blend them up just enough to give them a quick mixing.
