Please tell me it’s not snowing at yours; it’s almost summer here. Lazy days, chilled beer, fresh juices, crisp salads, sunscreen, warm breeze, flip flops, tank tops, shorts, sea, nautical stripes, lemonade and air conditioner. All this not happening at yours? It is? Great, ‘coz I have the most perfect recipe to beat the heat in the most pink-chic way. Of course we serve drinks according to cups and glasses- this story is the other way round! These cups called for the drink. Talk about crockery love!
On a recent trip to the nearest shopping mall- “More” is our “Target”, I found these lovely cups on sale. 2 for 2.99$. And here in begins the fun. I’ll give you the scenario in 10 minute time-intervals.
Note: All conversations are to “SELF”
11:10: Wow, pink fluted cups. Nice. very old school. “Should i?”
11: 20: Still in the same place, fiddling and thinking “Do you really need it?”
11:30: Walking off with discontentment. Had a nutribar- still unsatisfied
11:40: Dilemma swaying me like a pendulum
11:50: “You have way too many cups than required. Its fine, its just a darn good looking fluted pink cup. You’ll find it later”
12:00: Standing in the queue- pink cups still rattling my brain
12:10: F**k it. I want it. A girls gotta have what a girl’s gotta have”. (sorry for the abuse, but i want to be completely honest here)
I kept the billing girl on hold, ran back and got these cups. The nutribar was such a waste. Believe me, nothing makes me happier than happy crockery.
Off came these beauties with me home.
For the first 5 minutes I simply stared at them wondering how beautifully fluted they are etc etc. The next half an hour went in shooting. Another thing that makes me real happy: Photography. I can do it endlessly- 24-7. And the final hours of appreciation went in drinking iced strawberry milk in it on a hot sunday afternoon. Why Iced strawberry milk? You’ll laugh at this. Because it will go with the color tone of the cup, which means more photographs. I love how I am, when i get to do my things!
Here’s the recipe:
Milk: 1 cup (I used low fat, you can use full cream)
Sugar: 2 teaspoon
Ice cubes: 8
Strawberry: About 10
In a blender, blend the strawberries with sugar to a pulp.
Add ice and blend it again.
Now, top with milk and beat on low for about 15 seconds.
Pour in chic-pink-fluted-ceramic cups and watch a movie!
