#DOTW: Cookies and Dreams

Get some sugar in your system tonight. You deserve it. It was a scorcher today, most people I know were on the beach today, and are slowly returning to their homes, turning the air conditioner on high. Sunbathing and frolicking in the ocean waves is fun, but it also takes up a lot of energy. So when you finally relax in your living room tonight, make yourself one of these deliciously sweet cocktails to say good bye to the weekend. I drank mine as is, but feel free to add some heavy cream or Half & Half to it, it’s delicous either way!

What you’ll need:

In a martini shaker, combine rum, cookie and cream syrup, lime juice and port wine with ice. Shake well. Add ice to a cocktail glass, and pour contents of the martini shaker into the glass. Add heavy cream if you choose to.

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!
