Sorry getting a bit carried away with my very out of tune singing voice..

So, as you might have guessed, my latest cocktail is a Pina Colada.  And, even though I say so myself, it is totally my favourite and even surpassed my Screaming Orgasm Recipe.

Firstly take note of the ingredients needed, and when you read pineapple juice, don’t run to Tesco and quickly pick up apple juice, then make it with apple juice and wonder why it tastes horrid.  I have no idea who would actually be that stupid… cough cough…

Oh, and if you are on a diet, just forget the calories and enjoy, that’s what I did and the moment on the lips was well worth the lifetime on the hips in my, not so humble opinion.

So, I digress.

The ingredients are as follows:
Pineapple Juice 150ml
White Rum – I used Tesco’s own 100ml
Coconut Milk (this is in a tin) 50ml
Vanilla Ice Cream 4 scoops
Whipping Cream 100ml
Sugar – 1 tablespoon spoon
Ice – Handful
Squirty Cream in a Can
Cherry

Now I started with the amounts shown above, but I suggest you to add these in stages and do it to your own taste and consistency.

Equipment Needed:
Measuring Jug
Blender
Electric Whisk
Mixing Bowl

Luxuries needed
Personalised Glitter Pina Colada Glass

Method
Put most of the ingredients in the blender, keeping some back to add gradually.  I actually only put a small amount of ice cream at the beginning and added most at the end to thicken the mixture.

Whisk the whipping cream in a bowl until it is white and stiff as shown and then spoon into the blender with the other ingredients.

Put the blender on for a few minutes and don’t be tempted to stop too soon, I found this helps with thickening the mixture and getting a frothy finish.

I tasted it at this point and added in the rest of the ingredients.  If you decide you want it to be stronger, sweeter or thicker you can increase or decrease the final amounts to suit your personal taste.

Put the ice in a tall glass, preferable a tall one as shown, and pour the mixture over.  Squirt cream on the top of the mixture and add a cherry for decoration…

Then, put your cocktail dress on… and enjoy in the comfort of your front room.

When life gives ya lemons….

and some vodka, strawberries and ice…

 

Make A Vodka Strawberry and Lemonade Cocktail..

So, because I am on an eternal diet, I thought I would try a cocktail that was purely vodka based.. (because vodka is the best alcohol on all 5467 diets I have done) and the added fruit just made me feel more smug about the whole thing.

Now this cocktail has a strong taste I’m not going to lie, but the mixutre of lemon, strawberry and  vodka gives a kick to let you know you’re drinking and a really sweet after taste.

 

I liked it!!

 

And, I am sure you will too.  And, it is also quite satisfying that you have to make your own strawberry syrup so you get to feel a bit ‘Mary Berry’ in the process.  Overall I really enjoyed making it.

Oh, before you start I found my cup measuring device really helpful with this recipe.  And I would have found a lemon squeezer helpful, but in the absence of that, a husband or teenage son make an adequate substitute, as long as said husband doesn’t have paper cuts everywhere… steps in son Charlie to save the day (because quite simply my arms don’t work but that’s another story for another day).  Anyway suffice it to say a lemon squeezer is on my list of things to buy.

Equipment Needed:
Blender
Pan
Sieve
Lemon Squeezer
Cup Measuring Device

To make the actual drink: (makes aboout 4 glasses)
1 punnet of strawberries
1 Cup Vodka
8 Lemons
1 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup Water
1 Punnet of Stawberries

Preperations
Cut all tops off strawberries
Prepare your glass
Cut lemons and strawberries for garnish
Cut lemons in half for squeezing

Preparing the Glass
Rim the glass with some lemon and then dip the glass in sugar so that it sticks as shown in the picture.

Method
Put the sugar, strawberries and water in a pan and bring to a simmer for a few minutes until the sugar has completely dissolved.

Put the mixture in the blender and blend until smooth then pour the mixture through a sieve to get it nice and smooth.

Put the jug in the fridge until it’s nice and cool.

Add the vodka, lemonade and lemon to the mixture and mix well.

Put some ice into your glitter cocktail glass from  The Cheeky Cow   and pour the mixture over.

Oh and finally sip it, it is potent by the way but it gives a great kick.

Till then… TTFN

Ever wanted a screaming orgasm?

How to Make a Screaming Orgasm

Here I show you how to make a screaming orgasm in your own kitchen… Well my take on it, I added a couple of ingredients to enhance both the flavour and the texture. I include the screaming orgasm recipe, the method of how you make the cocktail and also a few extras that I found made it better.

I personally think that having a cocktail at a house party really does make it memorable… or not memorable depending on how many obviously.  You can still have the fridge full of Stella and Bud and the wine rack full of Prosecco and Red Merlot but a cocktail, just like a few quirky food bits, just makes your party remembered!

What you will need for 1 cocktail:

Tia Maria 20ml
Vodka 30ml
Coffee Liquer 20ml
Baileys 30ml
Ice
30ml Milk
1 scoop of vanilla ice cream

I used branded alcohol but to be honest, I would certainly use the cheaper versions if you are on a budget, I really think the taste would be very similar.

To Decorate:
Flake
Strawberry or Cherry
Paper parrot or other sparkly type of stick thing (amazon, search cocktail accessories)
Straws

To Make it:
Cocktail shaker and bits.  I got mine from Asda for £14.
Fancy glass – I used one that I made over at The Cheeky Cow, stocked in our shop and available for purchase.

How to decorate the rim of the glass with chocolate
I used water to wet the edge of the glass as shown below, and dipped it in crumbled flake. I did roll it round a few times to get an even edging. I think it worked well.

What to do.
Put all the alcohol into the cocktail maker with ice, and give it a really good shake, vigorously.    Add the milk and the ice cream (I used plain vanilla), and once again give a shake.

Untitled design (23)

Put the strainer on the top of the shaker and pour the cocktail into the glass.  Split the strawberry with a knife and slot onto the top of the glass.  Add the sparkly bits, a couple of straws and bobs your uncle.. You have yourself your very own screaming orgasm.

 

 

So that is it…

Obviously I enjoyed it, so did my husband too… My son had a sip and even he liked it too!

Would you like to try it?  If you would like the recipe to print off and keep, please subscribe to the blog at the side menu to the right and I will send you all new recipes in easy pdf form.

And, may I say thank you if you made it this far…. I am blushing really!

If you have any questions about my methods which I try to keep as simple as possible, or have tried it and want to tell my other readers about it, please do. I don’t want to feel like I am talking to myself..

Thanks again..

Paula 🙂
