Back in the day, when I went to Girl Scout camp…I had the most awesome time! One of my favorite memories was making Cowboy Sodas one year. Boy, they are simple and delicious. I have tried to recreate them, and sorta did. I used Bob’s peppermint sticks, you need a thick one, not a skinny candy cane, and I need to experiment with some more old-fashioned types.
Get an orange, Valencia works well, and squeeze it!
Poke a hole in one end
Insert peppermint stick ~ it’s yer straw!
The juice flows, well sorta, up the peppermint stick making a yummy concoction. I remember this working perfectly when I was 10. Maybe peppermint sticks were different back then. My juice actually came out all over the outside of my stick and all over my hands. We made a huge mess but my little dude and I didn’t care.
Do any of my fellow Girl Scouts remember this?
