This week’s Monday Funday drink, Diane’s Strawberry Cheesecake, inspired us to take some of the same flavors, streamline them, and see if something good came out of it. And guess what? Something great did!
This is a very, very special Monday here at The Woman At The Bar, because today’s drink was created specifically for one you!
Diane, one of our wonderful readers, threw down the gauntlet and challenged us to create a drink inspired by her favorite dessert, strawberry cheesecake, and we are not ones to ever turn away from a challenge–so create we did!
This is the first of what we hope to be many drinks created with your input, so if you have a drink challenge for us, no matter how pie (or cheesecake!) in the sky it may seem, send it to our way and we will put on our mad scientist caps and get to inventing!
But for now, we hope that you all (but especially Diane) enjoy Diane’s Strawberry Cheesecake!
Flavored vodka. We have a rather mighty love-hate relationship with you. Most brands are far too sweet, and some of the so-called “flavors” are so ridiculous (cake? s’mores??) that we nearly go into rage blackouts when we think about it.
But occasionally, a little flavored vodka can really be delicious–but only if you buy Stoli. All other brands must bow before their greatness.
Well, now that that is over, welcome back everyone! We made it to the last Monday in April, are you excited? We know you are.
This week, we created a drink that focuses on one of our favorite things when it comes to drink-making: combining two different base liquors to create one great cocktail! So say hello to our most recent invention: The Grande Vanilla Latte!
