Shannon’s New Drink: Whipped Chata Butter

Shannon’s New Boat Drink, Whipped Chata Butter Shannon is notorious for creating new boat drinks.   This time she invented, yet another, new boat drink which was REALLY good.  We nicknamed Shannon’s New Boat Drink, Whipped Chata Butter.  First of all, it is equal parts Whipped Vodka, Rum Chata and Buttershots.  But most of all, the drinks were dangerously delicious and easy to lose count of the number of shots consumed!!!

Halloween Trip Shannon and I took a quick trip inland last to visit a few close friends for Halloween.  Neither of us planned to dress up this year because, as much as we LOVE Halloween, almost everything we had in the way of costumes was packed away in storage.  Bummer, but we were at least thankful to get to…
