Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min

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!)


  • 1 carton Blue Bell Cookies and Cream or Cookie Dough Ice Cream (must be Blue Bell and highly recommend both kinds)
  • 1 bottle W.L.Weller Special Reserve
  • 1 handheld mixer
  • Straw
  • Cooking Directions

    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.
