In these trying times that we typically refer to as the summer months, we often find ourselves battling relentless heat waves, unbearable bouts of humidity, and sometimes even a hurricane or two if we made the poor decision to live on the Atlantic Coast (damn you, ocean views). Now, some may call us crazy, but we’re pretty sure the best defense mechanism against all of this is alcohol. Okay, well, maybe it’s not “the best” solution per se, but it’s certainly up there in the top five.
So, if you’re really looking to cool down this summer or want to make sitting through a hurricane that much more exciting, try whipping up a few “Lavender Ladies” to pass the time. For some of you, it may be the most attractive lady you see until the rain clears.
1 oz Barcardi white rum
1 oz Chambord raspberry liqueur
¾ oz Coco Lopez cream of coconut
1 scoop of ice cream
2 oz heavy cream
1 scoop of ice
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well before pouring into a margarita glass. If it seems like you may be stuck indoors for awhile, garnish with chocolate shavings and some whipped cream before serving.
