Coffee Milkshakes + Bailey’s = YUMMY

So Blake and I decided to make some milkshakes…. and if you know my husband, you know he doesn’t do anything average when it comes to cooking.  Here is the easiest milkshake recipe evaaaa:

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups (more or less-ish) of Coffee and Donut flavored ice cream (THEY MAKE THIS???).  If you cannot find this exact flavor, no worries!  Any Coffee flavored ice cream will work.
  • ~9 ice cubes
  • 1 & 1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup (OR MORE) of Bailey’s Irish cream liqueur
  • Optional: A brownie or chocolate chip cookie

Directions:

  1. Add ice cream, milk, liqueur and ice cubes to blender and blend your little heart out. (or at least until the ice is chopped up and the concoction resembles an actual milkshake)
  2. Optional:  Add the brownie and/or chocolate chip cookie and blend for a few seconds.  The goal is to have delicious chunks in the milkshake.
  3. Pour and enjoy (Responsibly, of course!)
  4. Go Gamecocks, obviously!

Strawberry Lemonade

This is a perfect drink for a summer afternoon!!

Recipe obtained HERE!

Ingredients:

  • ~8 large lemons (1 1/2 cups lemon juice)
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water, boiled
  • 1 tablespoon lemon grind
  • 5 cups water
  • 3-4 sliced strawberries

Directions:

  1. Squeeze lemons into a measuring cup.  This should yield the necessary 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice.  I usually buy a couple extra lemons, just in case it takes more than 8 to yield this amount of lemon juice.
  2. Pour the lemon juice through a strainer in order to get rid of most (hopefully all) of the pulp.  Set aside.
  3. Bring water to boil.
  4. Put sugar in pitcher and add boiled water.  Mix until sugar is dissolved.
  5. Add lemon juice, water, and lemon rind.
  6. Ideally, use this pitcher:  Primula infuser can be found at Bed Bath & Beyond.  Add strawberries into the fruit infuser.  Serve over ice.
