Happy Friday! Our monthly theme has been a werewolf summer. Werewolves are one of those monsters that can be both good and bad. Personally, I like stories told both ways. I believe in the love, power, and freedom of the wolf, a kindred moon lover. I can strongly identify with the what the werewolf represents to women, but I also believe there are demonic monsters hiding in plain sight. The cherry is a fruit often associated with goodness, innocence. sexuality, and fertility, so in honor of women everywhere, harnessing the power of the wolf, here’s a Boozy Cherry Shake recipe.
1/2-1 cup fresh chopped cherries
6 scoops cherry or french vanilla ice cream
2 scoops frozen whipped cream
4 oz vodka
2 oz spiced rum
1 oz maraschino cherry juice
Couple of ice cubes
Chop the cherries and remove pits.
In a blender, add ice cubes, cherries, ice cream, whipped cream, and maraschino cherry juice.
Blend until thick and smooth. Alcohol thins out the cream more so than a regular milkshake.
Garnish with more whipped cream, maraschino cherries, and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
