Earlier in the month, when the daily A Strawberry A Day instructions were to freeze strawberries, I knew I'd be using them for this days post. What I didn't know back then, is that we would still be in winter weather with some wind, pouring rain and cool temperatures. I'm craving hot cocoa, not a nice summer drink with ice cubes!

Chill happy hour drinks with frozen whole strawberries instead of ice: They won't dilute your cocktails.
Alas, any cocktail I thought of that I'd want frozen strawberries in, just wasn't doing it for me with this weather. Thus I grabbed a bottle of sparking pink lemonade and added my frozen strawberries. Excellent idea, as the mixture went well together. Or course everything just seemed a bit off because I was wearing flannel pajamas, big fuzzy slippers and sipping this in front of a fireplace!!
