The Martini Club: Casey Wyatt's Frozen Mocha


Welcome back to The Martini Club! Today, I am happy to have Casey Wyatt....er, rather Devlin, one of her naughty characters, visiting. He's providing us with a delicious, non-alcoholic beverage recipe. So, if you're looking for something fun to make for the kids while you're sipping your frozen mango martini, or if you prefer non-alcoholic beverages yourself (God bless you!), then check out this tasty treat.

Thanks to Casey for the recipe!

Frozen Mocha-loco!
By Casey Wyatt Devlin Ward


Pssst. Hey!  Yeah, you.

I assume you’re here for Penny’s Martini Club.  Me too!

Nice to meet you.

I’m Devlin Ward, the charming and handsome Satyr from Mystic Ink. I’m not a goat bastard regardless of what Nix says.

Casey Wyatt couldn’t be here today, so I’ve stepped in for her.

Actually, I peeked at her e-mail.

All right, I snooped.  I hear Penny has a thing for beards. Maybe she’ll like me. Satyrs are naturally well-endowed . . . in the facial hair department. What? Did you think I’d brag about my junk in public?

Get your mind out of the gutter. We’re talking about cocktails today.

Penny asked Casey to send in a recipe for her new Sunday series celebrating cocktails. And I couldn’t resist sharing one of my alcohol free recipes. Feel free to sneak in a nip or two of your favorite spirit. Me. I’ve sworn off the stuff since I woke up in the woods with grass in my mouth and a raging hang-over.

Any way.

If you love ice cream and chocolate, then you won’t be able to pass this up! And if you’re ever in Mystic, CT, stop by Fawn’s Pawns and say hello to me. 

Until we meet again . . .

~Devlin Ward~


Ingredients:

2 envelopes hot cocoa mix
½ cup milk
1 ½ cups of vanilla ice cream (or chocolate if you prefer)
1 ¼ tsp instant coffee
1 cup of ice

In a blender: mix all ingredients until well combined. You may need to add more milk depending on how thick you like your drinks. Me, I like it thick enough for a spoon to stand upright.

Be adventurous - experiment! Use one envelope of hot cocoa, instead of two. Or omit the coffee and drizzle in peanut butter ice cream topping instead.

P.S. If you have no idea who I am, then check out Mystic Ink by Casey Wyatt, where yours truly is the star.

Okay. Slight exaggeration. But Casey promises that I will have my own book someday soon.

Here’s the 411:

The last thing Nix, a Sea Nymph, wants to see behind the dumpster near her tattoo shop is another dead mortal. She also doesn’t want to hear Hades piss and moan about how the souls of the dead aren’t making it to the Underworld. And Nix certainly doesn’t want to be attracted to supernatural police agent, Calder Quinne when he comes to investigate. All Nix really wants is to run her tattoo shop in peace and quiet. Hey, we don’t always get what we want, now do we?

Available at these fine retailers. Sadly, not at Fawn’s Pawns. I deal only in freaky material objects.

Thanks so much to Devlin and Casey for the delicious recipe. I adored Mystic Ink and can't wait to read the next one in the series!

Happy Sloshy Sunday To All!

I want a frozen mocha for breakfast! ;^)

Devlin Ward said...

Well hello there my sweet host! I'm firing up my blender - frozen mocha for breakfast hits the spot. I hear you have thing for beards? Is that true? I'm working on some nice stubble right now...

~Devlin~

Julia Rachel Barrett said...

Now that looks totally yummy! I think I want mine for dessert!

Devlin Ward said...

Hello fair Julia! Do you also have passion for beardy men? I'd be happy to share "dessert" with you.

*Behave, Devlin. These are my friends. Knock it off*

Apologies.

~Devlin

Penelope said...

Hi Casey! Hi Devlin (keep working on the scruff, dude!). Thanks for stopping by today.

Hi Julia! Happy Sunday Smoothie!

I am going to make this w/ my daughter soon. She loves smoothies, and this one looks super decadent. She'll love it.

Tom Andrews said...

I just made one of these - delicious!! I left out the milk, ice cream, and cocoa mix, and substituted gin and a little bit of vermouth for the instant coffee, and it was kick-axe!

Thank you for the best frozen mocha experience I have ever had! I even put in an olive, just to be sassy!

Penelope said...

Tom, you are not only kick-axe, you are smart-axe.

I'm thinking Bailey's Irish Cream might be an nice addition. Or an olive made out of dark chocolate with a peppermint pimento.

Tom Stronach said...

Aunt Penny, bearing in mind I am Scot Brit, please explain an envelope in ingredient terms I can understand, sorry to be so boeing, but since my little bug attack on Wednesday night I am growing my beard back for you.

If I can decipher the recipe, maybe one for the twins next weekend....

Love ya, but concerned and worried being usurped by another beardy .... xxxxxx

Cindy Brannam said...

Yummy! The chocolate, coffee AND the beard. Oh, and the plaid in the sidebar is pretty nice too !

Devlin Ward said...

Devlin here - so pleased to see how you've all had from with my recipe! Thanks for having me today Penny.

Amber Skyze said...

The book and drink sound great! I'll have to try both. :)
Thanks for sharing.

Devlin Ward said...

Amber - the book and drink are fabulous. Not that I am biased or anything...

Susannah Hardy said...

Hey, Dev! I've got a thing for beards too. I can't wait till you get your own story. I am quite certain there is much more to you than meets the eye! If you have anything left over from this recipe, will you store it in Nix's fridge? Maybe next to a certain jar full of ... mixed nuts?

Devlin Ward said...

Please Susannah, I'm still shaking over that jar. . I hope that Cal has convinced Nix to bury it.

Maybe I'll stop shaving to please the ladies!

~Devlin

Penelope said...

Tom! You're growing back your beard! Excellent news.

I have to figure out how to modify the recipe for a Scot Brit. I'll do it!

Penelope said...

@Cindy, Amber, and Susannah....

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoy Casey and Dev's recipe.
