pixy stix straws & a holiday potion
there is something quite delightful about paper straws. i have a box of happy red & white straws somewhere in the many, many boxes that contain the everyday contraptions of the a-go-gos...somewhere. so, to get my paper straw fix, pounced on some extra pixy stix that i had floating about. and since i was going to be drinking through such happy straws i needed something perfectly perfect to drink.
a few weeks ago, a couple of friends and i were hanging out in a los angeles coffee shop that offers all sorts of goodness. it was a perfect meeting space as it offered caffeine for us ladies and a play area for the birdie. when birdie got a wee bit tired of the play area, Mama Za procured her a most delightfully wonderful concoction called a princess potion. complete with whipped cream, rainbow sprinkles and a pink frosted animal cookie, miss birdie was in princess potion heaven. i'm not sure how they make their potion but here is a scrumdillyumptious take using sweet yummy things from your kitchen. chances are you won't have to hit the grocery for anything.
*1 Tablespoon of jam
*1 cup of milk drink of your choice
*jar with lid
*3 pixy stix sans candy
begin by liberating the sugar candy from the inside of the pixy stix. with a pair of scissors, snip off both end and give a little blow through the new straw to remove any sugar residue. set aside
