Drink of the Day: Scooby Snack

August 31, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

An interesting cream cocktail for you to enjoy this Sunday evening.  I usually take this day to take some time off from the Drink of the Day, but since most of you will be enjoying Monday off for Labor Day, I figured I would share this beverage with you.

Named after the snack that would get Scooby to do things he didn’t want to do for those menacing kids that were part of Mystery, Inc., you will finally realize why he was more than willing to do the most unthinkable for them.  Sometimes it would take two or three snacks for him to do it, but who’s to blame him?  After imbibing on one of these yourself, you may realize that one may not be enough.

Enjoy your Sunday!  Cheers!
