Fairy Godmother where are you? Have you ever just wished you had a fairy godmother who would make your wishes come true? She would just wave her magic wand and presto, you have what your are desiring. Then again, if there was a real thing as a fairy godmother, life would not be interesting.
What do I mean by that? Well, think about it, if someone just gave you every thing you desired, wouldn’t you be board? If you didn’t have a, well for the lack of a better word, struggle, to get what you do have, could you honestly say you would not have enjoyed the success of getting it as much? The fun in getting something is actually the struggle to get it.
I will admit I do wish from time to time my fairy godmother would show up, at least in this dating department. Yikes, yep I met some “princes” so far, and trust me they really are not my type of prince. I admit I am being too picky, call me crazy, but a job is kind of is a big thing with me. What kind of job? I don’t care as long as they have one.
So why all this talk about fairy godmothers and princes? I was “challenged.” Not the ice bucket challenge, but a recipe challenge. I had to create a cocktail based on a cartoon. The rules are simple, be inspired by a cartoon, and develop a drink that is the cartoon. Create a post that would be fun. Finally, challenge 3 other recipe blogs to do the same. So now that told the rules, I am challenging the following blogs, who I think would have a lot of fun coming up with a cartoon cocktail are:
So, Disney Princesses came to my mind, my favorite one is Cinderella. What comes to mind with Cinderella, mice, a pumpkin, fairy godmother, a princess, the color blue, glass slipper, midnight. Hmmm, well seeing as no one would drink a mouse flavored cocktail, that is out. What else is one the list?
Pumpkin, hmmm, I have from Roundhouse The Pumpkin King Cordial. I love using Roundhouse Spirits in many of my drink recipes. If you want a great crafted spirit, you need to check out the Roundhouse line. You can buy their products online at Drink Up NY.
Perfect, the scene most remember is when the fairy godmother waves her want and turns the pumpkin into a carriage. Lets make a little more sweet, bibiti bobbity boo. Now you have a cocktail for a princess.
