I suddenly came down with what they thought was strep throat, but it is negative. My doctor said it is a bacterial infection, they been seeing a lot of it lately. I had to be sent home from work because I was so sick and was off the next day as well. I slept almost over 24 hours. I am feeling better once I had a full day’s worth of antibiotics in me, but wow did it knock me for a loop.
Since I was stuck at home, I just vegged out on the couch and I decided to re-watch the Grease Live! That was on a week ago on Fox. I am a huge Grease fan. That is my favorite movie of all time. This live musical version was ok. I think Vanessa Hudgens rocked as Rizzo. I really think they miscast the guy playing Danny. He seemed to me to be over acting as the role. The character that impressed me was Jordan Fisher who played Doody. I saw him in the Teen Beach Movies that Disney made.
I admit I like this kid’s voice. He has a gift. Here is a song he sang on Teen Beach movie that is really catchy:
So it is time for my annual PEEP recipe. Every year I have come up with a new recipe that features those marshmallow chicks and bunnies. Let’s see the first one was a drink also and it was called Alize Chillin With My Peeps and last year I made Chocolate Brownie Peep Bites. This year I went the adult drink version again. What can I say, I am obsessed with making these sugar coated treats into a drink. What inspired it this year was a Lemon Drop Martini. To make that drink you need sugar. Hello, these marshmallow bunnies are coated in sugar!
Plus I really wanted to make a new drink with Pau Maui Vodka again. I really love this vodka, it has a clean taste and it is so smooth. Handcrafted in small batches by Hali’imaile Distilling Company, it is purely a Hawaiian vodka in every way. I first worked with them when I was starting out and I created Hawaiian Vodka Sauerkraut with Pau Maui Vodka. No I am not under any obligation to create any more recipes for them, but I wanted to. It is a vodka I really like and it really makes this Peep Drop Martini pop with flavor.
