Date Night

This pregnancy has been all about some Squirt. Such an odd drink, but soo good. I know exactly which stores carry the 12 packs, which stores have the 20 ounce drinks, and I'm a bit of a junkie. I don't drink them every day, but when the need hits, the need hits, you know? Crazy pregnancy hormones.

I was doing some digging for date night, and I discovered that Squirt can turn into a fancy cocktail. Add lime juice, salt the rim of your glass, and you have a Paloma!

It was a cold day here, so gumbo was perfect. And, this one turned out so well. I was patient (not always the case!), and I let the roux get chocolate colored. It definitely makes a difference, so maybe I'll be patient enough next time, too.

Another date night with my favorite guy!

I didn't even know they still made Squirt! I haven't seen it in years and years.

One summer, a friend of the family introduced my parents to gin and Squirt. It became the neighborhood happy hour drink of the 1960's. LOL

I love Squirt! It's one of the few sodas I like. So fun that you made it fancy :)
