It’s really not that hot here, not hot enough to believe it’s June anyway.  For a split second I considered turning on the heat last week, what?  Regardless of the weather I am making popsicles. don’t care.

This recipe can really be easily adapted to what you have on hand.

Let’s talk about drinking dessert.  Oftentimes, I would much rather eat a slice of cake than drink a cake batter smoothie/shake.  But, when we add a sharp spirit to the mix, slurping dessert never tasted so fine. The possibilities are endless for dessert cocktails.  Happy hour+dessert course before dinner, yes and yes!

Hope you aren’t getting hammered with winter’s demise where you are, happy Friday and have a great weekend!
