I know it’s raining now, but if you were feeling anything like we were this weekend, all you were craving was a spot underneath a tree and a very tall, very cold beverage. I’m not sure what the Turkey’s Nest is up to these days but as far as refreshment goes, this drink comes in a close second to their “styros” of slushie machine margaritas (or a solid first if you think it’s too early to drink. And by early I mean you’re still at work.) My staff tells me this is the only way they can get through their day and I believe it. I find stubbies stashed everywhere around the store: in the locker-room, in the walk-in (behind a side of beef) and underneath the register. I’ve even found one in my desk drawer. And if you’re smart, you’ll have your last name scribbled on a piece of masking tape slapped to the side of the bottle.
There’s not much to the recipe.
1 Stumptown Stubby
1 quart of Maplehofe Chocolate Milk
2 pint jars
2 stripey straws
Fill each jar 1/3 of the way with ice
Divide the stubby between the two jars.
Fill remainder with chocolate milk.
Stir, sip, buzz.
