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!
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.
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 . . .
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!
