Humpday Happy Hour: Strawberry Bourbon Milkshake

It is the height of strawberry season in Virginia. The little strawberry bed we have in my mom’s backyard is producing nearly a pound of strawberries every other day, and I have a feeling it won’t stop until sometime next week.

“What are you complaining about!?” you mutter frustratedly at me through your computer screen.

I am not complaining, I swear, but we are certainly nearing the too much of a good thing point. I have nomed delicious strawberries for breakfast, lunch, and dessert for a week. My mom has filled her freezer to the top with tupperware containers of freezer-jam and there is no more room. So, last night, as I picked yet another couple of pints of the juicy red berries, I wondered how I might use up those berries that were already just past the point of rip. Then it hit me – puree them for a milkshake! Then add bourbon. Then sit on the patio and drink it! Sometimes I am too brilliant for my own good.
