“Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer” (those days of soda and PRETZELS AND BEER) is Wild Rose Brewery’s Crude Oatmeal Stout ice cream with a swirl of bourbon caramel and some chocolate covered pretzels thrown in just because. It’s Father’s Day in a pint … the other kind of pint … the ice cream kind of pint. (www.wildrosebrewery.com / @WildRoseBrewery)
“Rhubarb” is tangy and only slightly sweet creamy rhubarb ice cream with some icy cool rhubarb Riesling jam lurking within. Rhubarb is kinda like summer in Calgary … fleeting and never on time but luscious and so appreciated once it arrives. If it only it went on forever like this song! OH .. the Riesling is made in Canada! (www.peleeisland.com / @Peleewinery)
Roasted Bananas with plenty of Rum … to make it better. I was too young to have come by the Monkees on my own, I guess I have to thank my older sister Karen or my (badass) babysitter Phylis … but I was hooked and in love and swooney …if that’s a word. I remember practicing the harmonies in this with my sister endlessly … stealing my mother’s lipstick and covering Davy Jones’ picture with red kisses …. I think they were the first band that woke me up to how music makes you feel more alive!
