Rhubarb and Strawberry Milkshake

It's another pink drink! We've discussed these before. I like them, they walk all over your "i'm trying not to be girly and instead be edgy and drink only black drinks" thing you may have going on at the mo.

This is 50% milkshake / 50% smoothie. It's part milkshake because it has ice cream in it, and it's half smoothie because it has real fruit and honey in it, too. Freshly hulled strawbs, a dollop of stewed rhubarb, ice cream, milk and honey. That's all it takes to be awesome at milkshakes.

I made this last sunday morning after a particularly large night at a pub. When you order a bottle of wine at this fine swill house, they open it and pour it into a plastic caraffe; "because bottles are weapons." That might explain what kind of place i'm talking about. We woke up, made eggs and milkshakes, read the sunday papers then got back into bed and watched entourage for the better part of the day, and didn't feel guilty for a second.

Some people can't face milk after a night on the swill, but I love it. Especially when it's really cold and fresh. My old housemate used to buy a 1L bottle of milk when she was hungover and down it like she was in the milk Olympics. Fantastic stuff, hangover cure of champions. What's yours?

I feel that if I don't own this... it will be a bad accessory omen and I will never find another necklace that will surpass it! Look how sweet it looks HERE!

Going to hunt it down.
