recipes {drinks}

with all this wonderful snow weather that we have had, mymichael and i have had the chance to try out a few new winter recipes!  soome of these are pay close attention!!!

snow slushies

coke or your favorite soda pop
fresh snow

gather fresh snow from your front or back yard.  fill glass with snow & slowly pour soda pop over the top.

voila!  snow slushies!  absolutely wonderful!

the other drink recipe is for the adults.  mymichael has been under the weather for the past 5 days...sore throat...coughy...etc.  so, yesterday i made hima hot toddy.  i've always heard people using them to soothe throats and such, so i figured we would try it out. 

hot toddy
1 ounce whiskey or bourbon {we used whiskey bourbon...corrected by mymichael.  sorry but it's rather confusing!}
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 lemon
1 cup boiling water

pour 1 ounce of whiskey bourbon into a glass.  add honey and the juice from 1/2 a lemon.  boil 1 cup of water and pour into glass with whiskey bourbon, honey mixture.  stir to incorporate honey.

since we have SO much snow i started thinking about other things you could make with it.  here are some ideas i have come up with...

-snow ice cream
-snow banana split, use snow as the ice cream and top with chocolate syrup
-snow cones

those are just a you all have any ideas?
