My New Favorite Drink.....

I want to preface this blog post with the TRUE statement that I'm not a big drinker. I drank enough in my college days to float a battleship (sorry for the lame cliche), but I'm mostly over it now. I haven't had a beer since BikeFest back in October (when I felt the need to reward myself for riding my bicycle 102 miles), and even though I drink an occasional glass of wine, oftentimes I forget to do even that. I drink water (with lemon) and very little else.

When we go to the casino, however, I tend to drink more than usual. I mean, after all, the drinks are "free." (If I did the math and calculated just how much each of those "free" drinks cost me this past weekend, I would probably slit my throat.) Besides, I hate for those cocktail waitresses not to have something to do.

Thursday night I saw a waitress serving a drink to someone at a nearby table. When she got to us, I asked, "What is that drink with the whipped cream on top?" (See, I do have my standards.)

She replied, "It's a frozen buttery nipple."

Oh. My.

Butterscotch Schnapps, Irish cream, and half-n-half. With crushed ice for the "frozen" part.

After a couple of them, I wasn't even embarrassed about ordering it.

And I have just discovered that I can make a decent one at home, even without the whipped cream on top.

Oh. My.

I'm a big fan of mojitos!

Anything with the word Schnapps in it brings back memories of an unpleasant experience with the peppermint variety. Maybe this would cure me of my phobia.
