Cookies ‘n Creamtini

Now it’s just one of the many many MANY quirky flavors around. You’re lucky if you can find plain ol’ chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry ice cream among all the other flavors. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I’m all for fun new quirky flavors and combinations for ice cream and anything else (see my exhibit A: Chunky Elvis Ice Cream, Exhibit B: Crunchy Chicken Stuffed Waffle Pops & Maple Dijon Dip, and Exhibit C: Mexican Chocolate Snowball Cookies just to name a few of my quirky recipes…) . For my new “-tini “recipe I couldn’t help but get inspired by that oldie but goodie Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream.

Gummy penguins, gummy coke bottles, gummy strawberries, peaches, watermelons... the possibilities are endless (though I have heard that Swedish Fish don't work that well in vodka) I added some gummy Life Savers to my bears. I didn't like the idea of sticky fingers from pulling them out of a zip lock bag or party bowl, so I took the time (really it's only about 15 minutes) to stick them all on tooth picks. We are headed to the beach this weekend to meet up with my best friend from college and I can't wait to bring these little guys with us! They have quite a kick. Place your bears in a large bowl and pour over your vodka, cover with plastic wrap and let sit for at least 24 hours.

Skittles Vodka Party Favors. Isn’t that just what you always want to see when you come to a blog? Rainbow alcohol. Absolutely (pun intended)! With New Year’s Eve coming up, everyone is looking for ideas for their party. One party I had in college was a “Taste the Rainbow” party. We infused vodka with each flavor of skittles and had everyone dress up in skittles colors. Skittles vodka tastes fruity and delicious, but it’s very strong so be careful. UPDATE THAT WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD: Mix the orange skittles vodka with cranberry juice.

Also, I always wondered what the bottles of Absolut say on them.
