Homemade Frappula Frappuccino

Homemade Frappula Frappuccino

Last year, Starbucks added a spooky drink option to their regular menu for only a couple of days before Halloween: the Frappula Frappuccino. The ice blended drink sported a vampire bite that looked very much like the bites I’ve added to my vampire-inspired Halloween cupcakes and whoopie pies. This year the popular coffee chain added the Frappula back to the menu for a few days, ... Read More »

Banana Batida

Banana Batida

While the caipirinha is one of the most famous cocktails in Brazil, it isn’t the only one. A batida is a blended cocktail that is typically made with cachaça and juice, coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk or some combination of those ingredients. Since it is blended, batidas tend to be sweeter and less potent than other cocktails, including the caipirinha, and are wonderful for sipping ... Read More »

Egg creams are a classic soda fountain drink that dates back to the pharmacies/soda fountains of the late 19th century. The drink’s origins are actually unknown, but there are plenty of theories out there, including the idea that the name arose from the mispronunciation of the phrase “a cream.” Most of the mystery stems from the fact that egg creams, despite the name, actually include ...

These sandwich ... Read More »

Ultimate Strawberry Milkshake

Strawberry milkshakes are delicious when they are done well. A milkshake should be flavorful and indulgent, as well as the perfect way to treat yourself on a hot day. Too often, however, strawberry shakes don’t have enough fresh strawberry flavor or are so light and fluffy that you don’t get that rich ice cream consistency that you want to have in a milkshake. My Ultimate Strawberry ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

I generally like my milkshakes in classic flavors like vanilla, strawberry and chocolate, with the former two being slightly favored over the latter. When you have a really good milkshake, these flavors really shine. But as with all things, variety is nice, too, and as good as a plain vanilla milkshake is, it’s nice to be able to dress it up a bit with other ... Read More »

Two-Tone Banana Milkshake

Unless you live in California, you might not know that we are having something of a heat wave. Sure, it gets hot here in the summer and I do technically live in the desert, but when the temperature is consistently over 106F, it takes a toll on your desire to do things. Like cook and eat. Fortunately for me, I still feel like cooking. The ... Read More »
