My friend Megan first introduced me to boba/bubble tea a few years ago during an impromptu visit to New York. (Her enthusiasm for this Taiwanese drink was unmatched and I've associated it with her ever since!) If you have a similar love for this tapioca-infused drink, take note: making it at home is super easy!
Summer is coming, which means lots of time outdoors, picnics, BBQs, and festivities! All these events? They mean cold beverages better be at-the-ready. Check out this clever upcycled drink carrier!

What they DON'T have in their collection, however, is alcoholic drinks made with Oreo. Yup, Oreo cookies and booze. For those, you gotta come here. ;)
First up is the Oreo and Irish-Cream Milkshake. As the Hungry Mouse puts it, 'it's evil and

The Fourth of July is right around the corner. I can almost smell the sulfur in the air! Although The Fourth wouldn't be The Fourth without fireworks, it also wouldn't be The Fourth without some festive libations. Awhile back I posted a few red, white and blue boozy recipes, including non-alcoholic options for each. I thought it was time to add to our patriotic, bar tending arsenal. A search of the internet came up with some doozies.
Typical leftover Halloween candy options: One: you could eat it yourself and run the risk of chocolate overload. Two: you could take it into the office and let your co-workers go at it like lions on wildebeests. Or three: you could make some of these drinkable alternatives.
