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.

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.

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..

Introductions

Everyone needs a sprinkle of glitter…

Sparkle is a girl’s best friend right?

The Cheeky Cow thinks so… and so do I!

Before I introduce other bloggers, event organisation, other skilled craftsman and women in future blogs, I thought it would be prudent to tell you all where I am up to in my own business, how I got to this stage and where I am moving it forward to.

I have two passions now, funny cards being one and personalised glitter glasses being the other.  And while I think I have honed the designs into near perfection now, let me tell you, my first designs were something else altogether.  I am just glad I have a self critical eye is all I can say.  Don’t worry though, none of the early stuff ever made it to a customer’s house, just in my bin…. and lots of them!

After two years of hard slog, endless research, heavy investment in the right equipment and a bit of imagination I came up with The Cheeky Cow’s glass collections and it grows as each new season is thrust upon us.  The most recent is Father’s Day and it has seen the sale of various funny cards (my stepdad card was and is the most popular), and funny and personalised dad pint glasses have gone down a treat too.  I am currently in the middle of wedding season and brides are lurrvving the wedding glitter glasses… I could cry with excitement really!!

So basically our product is a glass (wine glass, champagne etc) of your choice, with the stem decorated with glitter (16 colour choices cough cough…).  And on top of that feature we have added a trim of diamante and  various slogans and phrases along with the drinkers’ name.   We do pint glasses too for the men of course, we like to keep everyone happy.  Our promise is to get the glass out within 3 working days, and to have a no quibble return policy, regardless of any reason and both our customer service and quality are shining through as the orders come pouring in.

By the way, this blog is not designed to be a direct sales pitch.. although if you do want to buy I am not going to tackle you to the ground, this is just so you get to know a bit about what I do every day.

Anyway, sorry for the ‘all about me’ post, but I thought it was important.  My next one will be much more interesting… I promise honestly!!

So till then
