Is everyone else ready for the weekend? I know I am. I am second shooting a wedding at the beautiful Delaware History Museum and planning on spending Sunday taking my sweet time, sipping on one (or possibly two) of these deadly little girl scout cookie inspired Tagalong Bourbon Shakes and mandating some much needed sit on my booty around the fire time off. It’s been all hands on deck, with no sign of things slowing down in the future – and you know what? I am ready for it. Excited for it. I’m excited about a lot of things these days….
A few months ago, I embraced a full on positive personality thing. I looked at the people who inspire me, my friends who are rocking it, and my life, and decided it was time for a reality check. And in the past few months things got busier. And things are getting better. And they are working on heading where they need to. It’s amazing what a little attitude re-direct can do. So sit back and fight the work day blues with a little sunshine and buttercups. Sure, it feels tacky as hell, but it works. You may find yourself not just perking up your own personality, but helping a few others along the way.
Just in case, have an extra milkshake on hand if they need an extra push!
Tagalong Bourbon Shakes for One
- 2 scoops chocolate peanut butter ice cream Ben and Jerry's makes a killer peanut butter cup concoction that is guaranteed to add like 12 pounds in two bites, but it's killer
- 4 to 6 tagalong cookies
- 1 to 2 if needed shots bourbon
- pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth.
Serve with more cookies or extra bourbon, a dollop of whipped cream or straight up nothing fancy maybe a straw if I can find one, if it's been a hard day.
Seriously, it's a spiked shake, no one's judging.
