Thirsty Thursday – Peach Iced Tea

Just PeachyIn celebration of the upcoming release of Just Peachy, we’re spending out Thirsty Thursday exploring delicious peach drinks and nom-noms.

Due to some technical difficulty (basically my computer doesn’t want to convert the .flv video file of my peachy video with Ms. Lisa B) we are posting a recipe for homemade iced peach tea instead of the peach crush we planned to share with you. But we’ll get this worked out, and soon.

In the meantime, enjoy!

In Honor of Prince Rogers Nelson

I just learned that an amazing musician that I grew up listening to, has died at the age of 57. Prince. The one and only. Is gone. So, instead of today’s Thirsty Thursday, I want to honor his legacy. I saw Prince live back in 1986 at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco. It was an AMAZING concert that, and right now I just have no words. None. Strength and peace to his family, especially his children.

Thirsty Thursday – Butterbeer

Yes, people, I have a Harry Potter fetish. In another life, I believe I was a Ravenclaw or a Gryffindor, complete with Quidditch skills and a killer broomstick. So, since I’ve got HP on the brain, here’s a refreshing drink that you’ll love to make for yourselves:

BUTTER BEER!

Oh, and for you non-beer drinkers (like myself), there’s no actual Budweiser in this recipe, courtesy of MyRecipes.com. Written instructions are below the video. Enjoy!

BUTTERBEER:
1 12-ounce bottle cream soda
1 teaspoon butter extract
1/3 teaspoon rum extract

WHIPPED TOPPING:
1/4 cup marshmallow cream
1/3 cup whipping cream
1/3 teaspoon rum extract
Preparation

In a pint-sized beer mug, combine bottled soda and extracts. Stir. Using an electric mixer, whip marshmallow cream, whipping cream, and rum extract until smooth. Add whipped topping to butterbeer.
