I never thought I would say this but I can’t wait for it to cool down. We’re in October and it’s 85 degrees in Southern California. We love summer here, but it’s time for a change. Do you know how hard it is to think of Halloween and Thanksgiving when you’re sweating in a pair of shorts and a tank top? It just doesn’t seem right. Someone needs to alert the buyers in Southern California that we are NOT READY for sweater season. We are still looking for flip flops and summer dresses.

Last weekend it was 92 degrees. Yes, you heard me. 92 degrees. So what do you do on a hot and sunny day in Southern California? You go to the beach, of course. We decided to stop by 25 degrees for a gourmet burger and some delicious cocktails. We needed to stay hydrated, after all. At the very end of our meal we decided we should live a little and get a dessert. What’s better than an ice cold drink and a burger on a hot day? A milkshake…and not just any milkshake. A Boozy Bananas Fosters Milkshake.


We split the shake in 3 but I would have ordered my own if I had known how delicious it was going to be. Every single sip uncovered a new flavor. This baby is loaded with incredible ingredients: rum, butterscotch and vanilla bean ice cream, to name a few. Trust me ice cream lovers, you have to make this spiked shake. Drinking this shake will bring you to a Southern California beach where you can sit and enjoy the nice weather. Cheersszzz!
