Tis the season, hic

Should I be concerned that Eldest Beautiful Daughter is overly fond of the Baileys Hint of Mint bought for Christmas?

It apparently is fab in hot chocolate, adds a certain something to chocolate mousse and she is very much looking forward to using it to replace the milk in her coco pops.

I'm so proud.

Is she old enough for alcohol? if yes, what the hell then it's just the calories1

Way for auntie to start her on something new!

it does sound rather fab. On coco pops you say?

Nota Bene said...

Good for long as she doesn't end up face down in them.....

Keep her off the Malibu and it's probably a manageable social stigma. ;)

Dear Mr Kellog,

Here's how to make those manky coco pop's palitable for sdults. Turns the milk Alky.

I LOVE the idea of replacing the milk in coco pops. Personally I can't stand either coco pops or Baileys Hint of Mint, but kudos to Eldest Beautiful Daughters creative use of anything alcholic, as they will try to, we so know! Haha...very funny.

Mint Baileys on the cocoa-pops beats vodka on the cornflakes!

Josie - yep, teenagers !

Secretia - almost she'll be 18 in March and she's lucky enough not to have to worry about calories (unlike her mother)

Paul - oh yes, auntie can always lead you into mischief

Heather - she was (showing remarkable restraint I feel) waiting for the weekend, she is still asleep so I will report back to you on how it goes.

NB - she is rather a lightweight

Matthew - she likes that too, it must be a teenage girly thing, I loved malibu when I was a student nurse

Lolly - a fantastic marketing strategy, you should be in PR

BMTA - ah yes, one of their first loves :)

Fhi - vodka on the cornflakes eh ? not tried that myself, but I do love a slug of Bailey's in my coffee.

Expat mum - do you remember Midori (sic?) melon flavoured liquer blaagh yet I still drank it
