I was recently introduced to some awesome cookies called Goodie Girl Cookies. These cookies are so tasty and the best part is that they are gluten free. I was inspired to take these cookies to next level and whip up an adult milkshake. I call it the Fudgie Boozie Shake. This shake is good for a relaxed evening on the front porch or back deck. Here’s the recipe and I hope you give it a try.
Butter Pecan Ice Cream (2 scoops)
Bourbon (You decide the amount)
Milk (1/4 cup)
Hot Fudge Topping
Goodie Girl Cookies (Fudge Stripped)
Take about (4) cookies and place in a clear bag (sandwhich bag) and smash cookies with a dough roller. You can also give them a rough chop on a cutting board. Set aside.
Take a Mason Jar and add some hot fudge topping to the top rim and bottom of the jar. Add the smashed cookie bits to the top rim and set in the freezer for 15-30 mins.
In a blender, add the butter pecan ice cream, milk, and bourbon. Blend smoothly. Pour milkshake into mason jar. Top with whipped cream and extra cookies! Enjoy!

At Haus of Kelley, we love the concept called signature drinks. We get excited when clients want to customize their drink menu to something festive that matches the theme of the event.
Having a signature drink at your event is a creative and fun way to keep the guests engaged. It is also a great conversation starter because no conversation has ever started with salad.
Drink Name: Coceaux Mangeaux
2 oz Coconut Rum
1 oz Amaretto
1 oz Mango Juice Blend (*We used Simply Tropical)
1/4 teaspoon Grenadine
Put ingredients into shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into cocktail glass. Top drink with cotton candy. Be sure to gently place the cotton candy on glass so it will not touch the liquid (it will dissolve if done incorrectly)

I tried a new sauce recipe for our 4th of July BBQ and I must say it was very tasty. I made a simple cherry sauce for my husband add to the wings on the grill. Here’s the recipe:
Marinate the wings in the seasonings or marinade of your choice. Refrigerate until ready for grilling.
Prep grill. When ready, lay wings evenly and cover.
In a medium sauce pan, Add:
About 20-25 Whole Cherries (Pull all stems)
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Pomegranate Juice (*Orange Juice will work as well)
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
Let the ingredients come to boil on medium low heat. Once boiling, stir and turn down to low heat for 8-10 mins. Strain sauce into a heat safe bowl while gently pressing remaining compote with the back of a spoon (whole cherries should be separated or separating from the seeds at this point). When all juice is extracted, discard compote from the strainer. Using a basting brush, brush the wings with the sauce and continue grilling. (This should be done toward the end to avoid any food burning)
Allow glaze to cook on wings for at least 8-10 mins.
Lastly, brush on your BBQ sauce of choice and serve. (We used Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey BBQ Sauce)
