Pulpwood Queen Stressbuster
Cocktails for Stressed-Out Moms and Book Lovers
The Pulpwood Queens book club of East Texas like to read with a stress-busting cocktail close at hand. Here is one of the club's favorite recipes.
The Pulpwood Queen Married With Children Driving a DAMN Mini-Van Stressbuster was created by Kathy Patrick, founder of the Pulpwood Queens, during one of motherhood 's more trying moments.
(Kathy's note: Stress will immediately lift, a guaranteed booklover's special. Will serve 4, but as I lead a very stressful life juggling motherhood, career, and marriage I drink till sated. What's left I freeze till another stress attack occurs. I also recommend exercising regularly for this truly decadent indulgence. Try it, you'll just love our downhome drink!)
Scoop out the middle of a Blue Bell Ice Cream container and fill bowls for the kiddos. Send outside to eat it.
Fill the hollow with Weller's Special Reserve, plug-in handheld mixer and blend till creamy.
Stick a straw in the container, grab a good book, and collapse into your favorite reading spot. Open book, sip and enjoy.
