Arctic Coke Make Icy Magic Happen

Enjoy a frosty and refreshing beverage

 

This past weekend as we were running about doing errands, we stopped in at our local Chevron station and hit the ExtraMile convenience store there. What a treat to find the Arctic Coke Icy Beverage Machine! The machine is super easy to use and pretty fun too. But, best of all, it makes the Coca-Cola  beverages slushy and icy cold. You can find a variety of Coca-Cola, Diet Coke®, Sprite®, and POWERADE®. Watch how simple the Arctic Coke is to use.

Dulce de Leche – Sweet Milk Cocktail

There’s nothing like an ice cold glass of milk on a warm day. Have you ever considered spicing up your glass of milk, and giving it a little kick? With Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, I thought I’d share one of my favorite warm weather cocktails, Dulce de Leche – Sweet Milk Cocktail. This Latin inspired libation is super easy and super delicious.

Imagine yourself relaxing on the porch or under a tree, listening to the birds sing, and feeling a gentle breeze brush across your face. Or perhaps your hosting a Mexican Fiesta full of bold and spicy flavors. Dulce de leche is a traditional Mexican flavor, and this sweet milk cocktail is perfect for cutting the heat in those spicy dishes.

 

Dulce de Leche – Sweet Milk Cocktail

A Latin Inspired Libation

 

Cocktails do not get any simpler. For this one, all you need is milk, vodka, butterscotch or caramel liqueur, and ice cubes. Cinnamon sticks are optional, and a pretty glass is always nice.

 

Ingredients:

  • Milk (I like to use 1% low-fat milk, but use whichever is your favorite)
  • 1 Ounce – Vodka
  • 1 Ounce – Butterscotch Liqueur or Caramel Liqueur
  • Ice Cubes
  • Cinnamon Stick (optional)

How To:

  • Add Ice Cubes to your glass of choice
  • Pour cold Milk over ice cubes
  • Add Vodka
  • Add Butterscotch Liqueur or Caramel Liqueur
  • Stir with Cinnamon Stick and leave in the drink for garnish

 

 

Easy-peasy, am I right?! It is like Mexican Flan in a glass, and you are going to love it.

Here’s a Printable Recipe just for you:

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup!

Pumkpin Spice Syrup

Fall Is Just Around The Corner

One of my most favorite things about Fall is the Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks. YUM! I cannot get enough of them. Actually, I am very sparing about buying those delectably delicious delights because the are so cost prohibitive at nearly five bucks a pop. When I do stop in for a special treat, I usually order the Cafe Americano with Pumpkin Spice Syrup and add some half-and-half to give it more of a latte feel. This is exactly what I did the other morning on my way to court. Yes, folks, the Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back!

Thank goodness I have a gift card for Starbucks. I am trying to make it stretch as far as I can. But here is the greatest news ever… I just ran across a recipe for Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup!!! I am so excited. It is the first recipe or substitute that actually looks like the richly scented gorgeously colored brand name syrup. I will definitely be giving this a try this weekend.

Want to try this Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup with me? You really don’t need very much; in fact, most of the ingredients are probably sitting in your pantry right now waiting for you. And, this easy recipe only takes about 12 minutes to make. How cool is that. Well, here it is…

Pumpkin Spice Syrup
Printable Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups water
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cloves
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, add water and both sugars. Simmer on medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves, about 4 minutes.
  • Turn the heat down to low and whisk in cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and pumpkin puree. Simmer for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Do not allow the mixture to come to a boil.
  • Remove from the heat and strain through a mesh strainer lined with cheese cloth or a clean tea towel.
  • Allow the syrup to cool to room-temperature before stirring in the vanilla extract. Store in a mason jar or airtight container. The syrup will last for 1 month in the refrigerator.

Cook Time: 12 Minutes

*NOTE* – My strainer is very fine and required no tea towel or cheesecloth. I did need to rinse my strainer after each ladleful and run the syrup twice through my strainer. Easy.
