Chilling And Enjoying Strawberries and Cream Cocktails

Some weekends are for chilling, getting together with friends and making cocktails, this weekend I discovered, ever so simple Strawberries and Cream Cocktails, and they are delicious.

Wimbledon is over for another year, and I would like to say I am sad. But I can’t, it sort of passes me by. I want to love tennis, feel that Wimbledon high that the rest on the national feels. But I just don’t get it at all. Dot get me wrong I don’t dislike it in any shape or form? I just don’t get it at all.

I know I see you frowning and scratching your heads? Maybe because my parents are not tennis fans, or that I don’t watch the tv too much. Whatever the reason it all passed me by, apart from the odd blog post I have read that mentioned it, I sort of forgot it was happening until Saturday, and by then it was almost over.

Living in a football mad household, the TV, internet and general life has been taken over for the last, well forever I suppose. Maybe that is why it has escaped me. Against the European Cup, tennis just hasn’t stood a chance.

Anyhow, as I say I realised it was Wimbledon season when one of my besties turned up at my house with strawberries, cream, and meringues on Saturday. We had a girls evening planned and she had brought along a desert.

Well, you know how it is, a Hawaiian pizza and several glasses of wine later we were not bothered for a dessert. So we decided to put my new Nutri Bullet to the test and turn our dessert into a cocktail. I have to say this was most definitely one of our better ideas, it was delicious. Two cocktails later we decided that cocktails were the way forward as a replacement dessert in such situations. The beauty is it takes minutes to make a delicious frozen cocktail, perfect when entertaining guests.
