Fizzy Jack-o-Lantern Milkshakes!


When we visit my parent’s in Cooperstown my daughter is allowed to have orange sherbet as a special treat after dinner. It is one of her favorite routines with her grandparents and I think it is fun and sweet. When we were visiting them for Columbus Day my daughter asked if I could make her favorite cold treat into a milkshake. I am not sure why she was set on a milkshake, but why not?! I blitzed the sherbert in the blender, added a bit of milk to loosen it up and some sparkling water for fizz, then poured it into a tall glass. To give it a fun Halloween twist I tape a little jack-o-lantern face to the glass and rimmed it with Halloween sprinkles. She loved her fizzy sherbet shake and the new twist on her favorite tradition!
