I had the most wonderful evening, and am experiencing a flood of emotions right now. But since this blog is about food, I will express myself through libations. Our recent weather has been pretty hot, with clear skies and the occasional breeze. Perfect for egg creams or Summer Refreshers! I eyeballed the egg cream recipe, using seltzer, milk (I forgot that I’d taken my soy milk to work for cereal consumption, so I actually used cow’s milk and it was pretty good), and a stream of chocolate syrup. MMMM-delish!

For the Summer Refresher, I used a memory of this drink Haagen Dazs used to carry years ago. It was a sparkly, citrus-y, sorbet-ey, and creamy float. All that and it came with a long handled spoon! Enjoy –
