Strawberry Margarita Jello Shooters As many of you know, my Lemon Drop Jell-O Shooters are my issued dish from my girlfriend who holds the annual tailgate kickoff amongst our friends. This year with Matt being in the hospital, I sent them forward to the gathering in our absence. Now that we can finally make the next one in two weeks, she has again requested Jell-O shooters. That being the case, I opted to try what you see here. Besides how cute and fun are these?

Strawberry Basil Lemonade. This Strawberry Basil Lemonade is coming to ya from the archives but I’ve given it a bit of a face lift.

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

Strawberry Basil Lemonade was basically the first drink recipe I ever post on WGC and it’s been my most requested drink ever since. It’s a refreshing blend of homemade lemonade that gets fresh strawberries and basil pureed into the mixture. Depending on who’s enjoying this with me, I’ll add a glug or two of gin or just leave it “virgin” and enjoy it over some ice. Either way, it’s the best drink out there and you should probably be drinking this come Monday by the pool working on your tan. At least that’s what I’ll be doing poolside, in Tucson, with my besties.

And while this doesn’t directly figure into book tour, I’ve also managed to schedule just about every single meal while I’m in Tucson so I can hit up my favorite places to stuff my face while I’m there. So in the meantime, grab some lemons, strawberries and a handful of fresh basil and let’s make some cocktails or mocktails! Chocolate & Vanilla Guinness Floats with Creme Chantilly.

Vanilla Guinness Float Guinness is the favored beer here at The Mouse House, hands down.

Chocolate & Vanilla Guinness Floats with Creme Chantilly

While we usually enjoy it at home straight out of the can, we do occasionally cook with it, too. (Mmmm, Guinness Stew with Sage and Ginger.) One my all-time favorite things to do with this creamy, rich stout, however, is mix it with ice cream. If you like stout and have never had one of these, you’re in for a treat. Here’s how to make a classic vanilla Guinness float—and a decadent chocolate one. These drinks are velvety, grown-up takes on the classic root beer float. Chocolate Guinness Float Read on for these 3 recipes! 1. Creme Chantilly 2 Tbls. sugar 1 cup whipping cream a drop or two of vanilla extract Now, let me first say that using a blender is the quickie, cheating way to make creme chantilly (a.k.a. sweetened whipped cream).

When you use a blender for this, you need to keep an eye on it. That said, put the sugar in your blender. Pour in the whipping cream. Turn off the blender and check it. Cheers!
