You know, Rick Santorum just dropped out of the Presidential race (I’m sorry, suspended his campaign— as if he’s putting it into hibernation, to be thawed out in the year 2045).  I heard the fait accompli breaking news over lunch with boyfriend, and I felt like indulging in some hedonistic opulence.  But we had hardly much booze left, errrr… any groceries to whip up something to do this moment justice.

That’s when Michael swept in, took a look around the kitchen and did what he does best:  creating tasty masterpieces on the spot.  Behold, our latest opera!


-Handful of ice

-Cup of skim milk

-Two fingers of Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer

-Splash of cold coffee

-Hearty slug of Disaronno amaretto liqueur

-A roguish wink

-Two frozen slices of extra gooey cinnamon raisin bread


Pour in a nice tall glass, put in a bendy straw or two, and crumble a little cinnamon and leftover toast on top.  Now, you’re drinking a cold and cozy Cinnamon Toast Crunch booze shake with us sinners!

A toast to you, Sen. Santorum. A cinnamon toast, as it were. Ta ta!
