This past weekend, it was scorching hot…and I do mean scorching. We were up in the 90’s for 2 or 3 days. Which, for New England…in early June…well, let’s just say my body thought we moved away from Oklahoma — and now it’s just plain confused.
So, anyway, out of sheer desperation, my sweetie and I had to find a way to make a knock-off version of our favorite Sonic drinks, to get us through the heat wave. And we did.
Oh. My. Pickles. Mmmm, mmm, mmmmmmmm. That hit the spot.
And of course, having found a way to recreate these sweet summer elixers, I felt the need to share. So, I made some cherry limeades and lemon-berry slushes for some of our friends here at the seminary.
Of course, now, it’s not just me and my sweetie who keep wanting more…it’s our friends as well.
Tonight, while spending some time watching a movie with a couple of friends, I ended up running downstairs to grab the mixins because one of my friends had been “craving one of those drinks ever since you made it the other night”.
I joked that I was going to have to take up a sonic-drink-knock-off fund and people could just knock on our window and place their order.
Then Jessica said I could put my sweetie through school selling them.
