I think one of the coolest compliments I have gotten in a long time was when my Step Son Steven said “Oh My Gosh how did you do that? You are like a Food Chemist!” This was his response when he took a sip of the drink. At first he didn’t think that it could possibly taste just like that Summer Time Favorite. Well it does!!
Now we are having a very mild winter here in the Mid West. Most days are in the 40′s and 50′s. I worry that we are going to have to pay for this gift from Mother Nature one way or the other…… Like 10 feet of snow in March or 120 degrees in July. Even with the mild winter it still is not the same as my Sunny California and warm Sunshine. So I do have a bit of the Winter Blues, not too bad just a touch. It doesn’t help that I am reading about all the fun our Foodie Friends are having Down in Australia for Australia Day festivities. It is Summer there after all! I see all these warm and sunny and fun dishes being created and I just felt I needed a bit of Summer here in Kansas City!
This little gem does just the trick and it is also going to make great little Valentines Gifts for teachers and Co Workers! All you need is little cute jars emptied of their original items and washed and dried and a little bit of cute ribbon and you have a cute little gift!
I used a jam jar, mustard jar, and small milk bottle for these! I need to wrap the mustard lid in cute fabric to hide the dumb bar code.
