Since I love to cook a lot of different things those appliances get used a lot. In just the past four days I have made over 200 cupcakes, one small cake, Eggs Benedict with homemade Hollandaise Sauce, an Angel Food Cake from scratch, two batches of fried potatoes, roasted asparagus and brussel sprouts, Latin Black Bean Chicken soup, and more stuff that I can't even think of at the moment.
Right now it is 10:00 at night. I'm tired. I'm almost done for the night. Gotta frost a small cake and about 36 cupcakes for the Angsty Teen... then I am going to do something for me.
Aren't you proud of me?
A couple of days ago I wrote about my relationship with Bailey... well, Bailey's... Irish Cream....(you may read about that here). One of the comments I had that day was from Michelle at You're my favorite today. (She's hilarious... and if you haven't read her blog, you should.)
Anyway, she told me that Bailey's gorgeous younger brother Mint was also a tasty treat for the senses and she proceeded to give me a recipe for an amazing sounding drink.
Here's what Michelle said:
The brother named Mint is delicious. And if you want to enjoy the men a bit more - you just gotta add a little somethin' somethin'.
1 1/2 parts Baileys (I'll leave the 'parts' measurement up to you)
1 1/2 part vodka
1/2 part Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
Freeze glass for 10 min.
Make a pretty design on cold glass with Hershey's syrup (or just dump some in)
Shake and pour
I promise, you'll rekindle that romance REAL fast.
Then she sent me this picture on Facebook:
|This looks fantastically wonderful!|
Such wonderful nectar does not exist in my town. Dang.
But as I chatted with the lady at the store, she suggested a different liqueur... When she showed it to me, I realized I already had that one at home for when Kati and I made boozy shakes earlier in the year.
Before I started typing this post I put a glass in the freezer... in order to finish this post I am going to go make this drink! I'll get back to you in a couple minutes.
Okay, here is a picture of my ingredients:
|I used regular Bailey's...|
After a minute or two....
|Beautiful enough for me!|
The romance is alive and well. Thanks, Michelle!
I only wish I had a snout so I could lick all the chocolate out of the inside of the glass... is that bad?
