Happy Hour: Thin Mint Cocktail!
Hey there, Babes!
Spring is in the air… can you smell it? Here in Maine, we had a quick glimpse of it with several sixty degree days! And for me, that means I’m breaking out some of my favorite beach reads and prepping them for trips to the beach! (Okay, okay, I know that’s still a few months away, but a New England girl can dream, can’t she?)
As I’m sitting here prepping for the April release of my second book in the Beefcakes series, I wanted to share with you a cocktail recipe I created that was inspired by the thin mint cupcake that Neil makes in my romantic comedy, Beefcakes!
The steps are super easy! Don’t believe me? I even made a video demonstrating how simple it is to make… just don’t spray your whipped cream everywhere, like I did!
1) Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
2) Pour 1 oz of peppermint schnapps
3) Pour 1 oz of chocolate liquor (your choice of brand or type of chocolate– ie, dark, milk, or white)
4) Pour 2 oz of milk (I use Almond milk, but again, it is your choice of dairy… or non-dairy)
5) Give it a good shake
6) Drizzle chocolate syrup into the glass
7) Dip the rim of your glass in whipped cream
8) Pour the contents of the shaker into your glass
Things are about to get sticky…
I might as well permanently add the label “Ex” to my name. I’m an Ex-Mr. Universe. Ex-Mr. Olympus. An Ex-Hollywood Stuntman. But no one from my small hometown cares anything about that. They only care that I’m the ex-boyfriend to the beloved Mayor’s daughter, Elaina Dyker.
And now, ten years later, I’m back, helping my siblings run my mother’s bakery while she takes on chemo. What should have been a routine cupcake delivery turns into utter chaos when the bachelorette party thinks I’m a stripper. And what’s worse? Elaina is the maid of honor.
When the video of Elaina and I meeting again goes viral, my small hometown becomes positively infested with tipsy bridesmaids looking for my erotic cupcakes.
Now Hollywood’s knocking again—and they want Elaina to join me starring in a reality show.
All we have to do is play nice for a few weeks and pretend to fall in love again in order to win half a million dollars and solve both our problems.
Shouldn’t be too hard, right? Everyone knows, reality television is anything but real…
