Another fun cold orange summer drink and a story: Once while eating at Denny's the waiter recommended what was basically an orange Creamsicle milkshake. I love orange Creamsicles almost as much as I love chocolate with peanut butter. Basically make your normal vanilla milk shake (vanilla ice cream and milk) and add some orange juice. I don't know how much... 1/2 to 3/4 cup maybe. Super yummy. I ordered this at Denny's every time we ate there from then on, and surprisingly when we were first married, we ate there a lot. I think it was the Moons Over My Hammy. And the milkshakes. And the being opened late. And the being down the street from one of our first apartments. Sometimes the waiter was cool with it. Sometimes he was confused. Sometimes they charged me for a vanilla milkshake and a small orange juice. Argh. Try it out!
