I Have A Bullfrog In My Throat

8 Jun

Last night, KK and I went over to Muffy’s house for a lovely dinner. Muffy has the cutest house on the face of this earth. Every time I go over there, I immediately want to move in. Oh, and let’s talk about her garden-it’s gorgeous. After being at her house and seeing your beautiful yard, going home depresses me. Pulling up to the pile of weeds in front of my house is just about enough to send me over the edge. I vaguely considered jumping out the first story window, or throwing myself down a short flight of stairs, but reconsidered. If I died, I would no longer be able to enjoy the delicious and refreshing beverage that Muffy introduced me to last night: the bullfrog.

Mmm. . .bullfrogs are DELICIOUS!! Thankfully, she didn’t have an endless supply of ingredients as I would not be here today. Instead, I’d probably be wrapped around the toilet cursing both Muffy and the cocktail flu.

Take 1 can of limeade and dump it in a pitcher, fill the same can with vodka and add it to the pitcher, then add a can of water. Stir it up and serve over ice. Muffy modified the recipe a little to make it even more delicious. But I’m not giving that away as it’s Muffy’s secret and I don’t want to be the one to expose it!!

You should plan on having one this evening-especially since it’s going to be Africa hot today. Speaking of Africa, I have an update on Un-boyfriend’s trip. Look for another posting soon.

    I’ve never heard of a Bullfrog made that way. Us poor college students make it with Crystal Light (On-the-go packets), water, really cheap and disgusting vodka, and Sprite or Mountain Dew.

    Beatrix Kiddo: I’m sure it’s tasty with crystal light, but it’s even better with the frozen concentrate.

    Princess Extraordinaire: It is might tasty!

    Diva’s Thoughts: It really is!

    I think you just gave me my new cocktail of the summer. Delish!

    Can of frozen concentrate,can of rum, 2 cans of sprite. Take a cookie sheet, cover it with those clear plastic rocks glasses you get at party stores and fill with the mixture. Put cookie sheet in freezer until the drinks are almost solid. Then serve to guests.

    You can also do it in one of those big plastic pitchers with the lids, but it takes longer to freeze that way.

    In undergrad, we’d take a bottle of Sprite, pour it out until the top of the label, drop in a packet of Kool Aid Mix, and then fill it back up to the top with vodka. I didn’t drink at the time so I can’t vouch for the taste, but “never water down your vodka” sounds like a good rule to me. I’m usually just a flavored vodka on the rocks kinda gal, these days.

    vodka and citrus, what can’t you do? First the Screwdriver, then the Greyhound, and now the Bullfrog? I might have to put this on the menu this weekend (“menu” = assortment of drinks in front of me at any given time).
