DOTW: Spiked Strawberry Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but I’m entirely sick of winter. It was around 60 degrees the other day, and I was so happy. Duped, because of course it went back down to 25 degrees the very next day, but my yearning for spring was awakened. What’s a girl to do?? Make a spring cocktail and drink away your winter blues of course. So, I’m not entirely sure when strawberry season begins or ends, but at least here in New York, you can buy them year round. Ergo: a strawberry cocktail was enjoyed that cold winter night. OK, maybe two. I made it kind of like a smoothie, so it even felt a little healthy. I was a good night.

What you’ll need:

Add vodka, strawberry creme and half & half to a blender with ice. If you have lots of strawberries, throw in a couple fora more fruity taste. Blend well. Serve in a glass with fresh strawberries for garnish. If you don’t have a blender, you can also use a cocktail shaker, the cocktail just won’t be as creamy.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
