Today is white chocolate day so we are celebrating with a white chocolate liquor cocktail.
I originally set out to make a cocktail I saw on Facebook from King of Thrones. The problem is that my husband volunteered to do the shopping that day (not that volunteering is a bad thing) and he decided to interpret the list instead of following what I wrote.
So the first time he went out (yea there was more than one trip required) instead of buying vanilla cream soda, he came home with a vanilla flavored beer!? And I just have to say “yuck”! And to top that, he said he “consulted” with the store owner and they decided that vanilla cream beer was vanilla cream soda – go figure?
So it was trip number two for Vince, this time to the grocery store to buy vanilla cream soda. You guessed it; he came home without the vanilla cream soda and bought cream cane sugar which I learned is a lot like cream soda. The problem is that it’s a cream color and I was really going for clear with a vanilla flavor.
Since I couldn’t fathom asking him to go yet another time, I decided to make do. Well I am so happy that he bought this Cream Cane Sugar because this cocktail shake turned out to be just perfect! I couldn’t decide if it’s really a cocktail or if it’s dessert so I guess we will go with a cocktail milk shake.
Now I needed a name, so I went to my trusted FB friends and asked them to name it. I got a few really good names and then one not-so-good name from my sister Kit who wanted to name it Tidy Bowl – really – Tidy Bowl??? Go figure – little sisters! Finally, my friend Diane came up with Blue Suede Booze and it was a winner.
Hope you enjoy making and drinking Blue Suede Booze – and go slowly because that color is just so amazing that you will want to look at it all day long.Print
