Pink Grapefruit Cosmoplitan Smoothie

Three parts frozen Cosmopolitan. I used the cocktail in a bucket type, but any frozen cosmo would do.
One part pink grapefruit ice cream. I made a beautiful pink grapefruit ice cream late last year, but unfortunately that was in my non-blogging period, and now I can't find the recipe. I know it was custard based, and I think I may have cannibalised so other sort of citrus ice cream recipe to make it.
Blitz in the blender until smooth. The photo does not do the pinkness of this drink justice.

And the taste? Well apart from moaning, I'd say it's fruity, sweet and tart and creamy and refreshing, and not for people with sensitive teeth - the vodka doesn't freeze until it's way below zero, so this ends up super cold. Pretty strong too.
On second thoughts, perhaps I should not have written this post while I was taste testing. Meh, What's a drunken post or two between friends.

This is the drink I'm serving up for the Virtual Girls Night In. I thought I'd post it up before round up so you could all try some too. If I find that pink grapefruit ice cream recipe, I promise I'll blog it up for you. It's very delicious.

Don't forget to think (and cook!) pink for the Virtual Night In, raising money and awareness for Breast Cancer Research.

OOOO I wonder I might be able to make a 'virgin' one....Then I can share a virual drink with you.

Not drinking yet while still breastfeeding.

I think you could use semi frozen cranberry juice instead of the cocktail slushy.

And virtual booze isn't bad for breastfeeders.

Unless you consume your efforts after the photography of course ;)
