The Stirrup Queens Guide to Two-Week-Wait Cocktails
I don’t drink very often, but I still feel the need to complain about the fact that I don’t drink during the two-week-wait. Because until it’s for something, it’s all for nothing! You skip the free French Martini at the open bar because you’re secretly hoping that you’re with child, and then AF shows up and you kick yourself because free alcohol doesn’t grow on trees!
Stirrup Queens need special drinks during their two-week-wait as well as any night that they need to give themselves an injection (real alcohol can be consumed on any evenings when you get a…don’t say it…BFN). Drinks that they can pour into a martini glass and feel shmancy.
I am currently drinking one of these drinks as I write, so in addition to making you send me your comments, blog addresses, write-ups for Operation Heads Up and every other little thing I demand from all other SQs and SPJs, I am now asking you to add your best 2ww drinks.
The Whoa-Nelly (tweaked from the Jen’s Delish of Northampton’s Haymarket Café)
1 cup decaf iced coffee (that’s the only drawback to this drink—you need to have the coffee cold so make it the night before)
1 cup milk
a few squirts of chocolate syrup
a few glugs of hazelnut syrup
Shake together and pour into chilled martini glass. Drink while staring longingly at that unopened box of pee sticks. Continue drinking while not testing.
