You guys! Today is Simply Whisked’s very first giveaway ever! I’ve teamed up with Hamilton Beach to get one lucky winner their very own mixer. The best part is, you get to choose which one you want – a stand mixer or a hand mixer . I know. It’s super awesome of them, and I’m really excited. Can’t you tell?
When Hamilton Beach sent me two samples of prizes – don’t worry, not the actual prizes, the winner will get their very own brand-spanking-new mixer – I was so excited to try them out. I already had a Hamilton Beach hand mixer , but this new one is so awesome. It’s got fancy new features, and it even looks cooler than my old one, which by the way, still works like new.
My favorite part? The milkshake attachment. It’s awesome. You can make milkshakes without even owning a blender, which I don’t. So it was the perfect new addition to my kitchen supplies, and I knew I’d be making a milkshake for this giveaway post. The only question was, what kind of milkshake?
One with booze of course! But, we just happened to have a 2-liter of root beer in the pantry, leftover from the holidays, and a thought popped into my head of being 15 and working at a local frozen custard shop. They had a milkshake on the menu called a black cow. It was basically a blended root beer float. And, after doing a significant amount of online reading for no reason really, I found out that black cow and brown cow are used in a number of ways and can refer to root beer floats, chocolate root beer floats, blended drinks, etc, etc. You get the idea. It depends on where you live.
So I made a delicious combination of them all – black cow milkshakes – and I used chocolate ice cream and root beer. And, I blended it. How about that? I also added a little Kahlua to make it extra special, since I know January can be such a blah month. I hope you like them as much as we did.
Either way, be sure to enter the giveaway after the recipe in this post! The winner will be picked next week, so you have until the end of the day on January 21st to enter.
