Disclosure: this is a sponsored post. All Scandal obsession, party planning and opinions are purely my own.
I moved a few weeks ago. And now with all of the unpacking comes the exciting planning of a housewarming. Yay!
Okay, I lied. It’s not a housewarming. It’s my Scandal Prom Party in honor of the season premier of Scandal. Because, hello?! Who can miss this business?
Doesn’t it make you want to dress up and have a nice luxurious drink? Of course it does! Perhaps it’s because I just unpacked glasses tonight but each person reminds me of a drink: cosmopolitan, apple martini, scotch. Amirite?
Well, I’m all up in the focus of Ms. Pope because who doesn’t love Liv? That dress has me wanting to pull out a ballgown (from someone else’s closet) and dress up so I can go take over the world.
While I wait to create with the deliciousness that is International Delight’s Pumpkin Spice Delight (and the mad dash of baking that will ensue once I find all of my baking gear), I thought I would play around with the Vanilla Caramel CrÃ¨me, Hershey’sÂ® Chocolate Caramel and of course CinnabonÂ®.
This last one was the winner for my signature party drink. Enter the Scandalous Cinnamon Delight. I slaved day and night on this drink and its many permutations because I had to get all of the ingredients just right. I am nothing if not thorough. I hope you all appreciate this.
I think one of my favorite things about International Delight creamers has been the fact that I can use them for so many different things, not just my beloved cafe. Which makes life that much more exciting. It’s the little things, I tell ya.
I can’t wait to make more of these. Not for myself, of course. For my girls.
And I can’t wait to meet up with my friends. The older I get, the more I crave these moments of sitting back and relaxing with like-minded folks. Come September 25th, like-minded folks are going to be dressed up, drinking the SCD’s and posting reactions on social media. We’ll also be taking pics of our drinks and each other. Because that’s what friends do.
Also, allow me to be the first to tell you that should go check out the Member Delights page. Sign up to be part of the community and get an instant member coupon and access to exclusive giveaways (like a chance to win a 40″ Smart HDTV which you can bring to the Scandal party).
Oh I guess you want the recipe for all that deliciousness, eh?
- 2 shots Cinnabon creamer
- 1.5 shots vanilla infused rum
- Cinnamon stick
- In a shaker, mix ice cubes, shots of ingredients and shake, shake, shake. Pour into your favorite martini glass. Grate a bit of cinnamon and use the stick as garnish in the drink.
