It stores in the fridge for up to three days. The full, printable recipe is below. Beyond that, I have included some pictures and information…

    Super Special Lemonade Make some Super Special Lemonade by adding sweetened condensed milk to fresh squeezed lemon juice. This produces a perfectly sweet lemonade. This lemonade is super drinkable due to the slightly creamy taste of this thirst quenching drink. Having always been a fan of lemonade but not a fan of the overly sour flavor, this is the perfect solution to that problem. The full, printable recipe is at the bottom of this post I will just share a few fun facts and tips if you care to read. Brazilian Lemonade I found out about this recipe from perusing…

    This post contains an affiliate link for my amazon page. I have learned many useful things since I started blogging and using Instagram. I would have to say that one of the most useful things I have learned on Instagram was this Iced Coffee recipe from my Instagram friend @southernatheart. If you are an Instagrammer, give her a follow, her stories are SO entertaining. Nikki “Southern At Heart” calls herself the coffee Queen, and after trying this recipe, I have to agree that she is in fact, a Queen. I added my own little touch to this recipe and it…

    June 21, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I have an O-B-S-E-S-S-I-O-N with Wisconsin Supper Club Style Brandy Old Fashioned’s. My parents have a home in the Western U.P. of Michigan which is right over the border from Wisconsin, the home of The Brandy Old Fashioned. Last year I even did an Old Fashioned Crawl through the Northwoods and wrote a blog post about it called “A Waitress Named Diane”. It was fantastic. Since I cannot permanently live in the Northwoods (although I wish I could) I decided I needed to perfect the Brandy Old Fashioned at home. The drink itself does require more than a few ingredients,…

    Travel Wisconsin ran a commercial a few years back about the Wisconsin Supper Club and The Old Fashioned Cocktail. In the commercial it teaches that an Old Fashioned is served in a ten ounce glass, with a maraschino cherry, and an orange slice but that a REAL Old Fashioned must be served in a room with a brick fireplace, an a deer head mounted on a wall, by a waitress named Diane.¬† (See the commercial here The Wisconsin Supper Club) As a lover of the Wisconsin Supper Club scene and pretty much all things Wisconsin, this commercial gives me all…
