    Okay guys, I need some ideas to showcase the "shaker" next week. I'm doing a show after school in the cafeteria for about 40 of my fellow teachers. We're making a dessert, salsa (regular and pineapple) and I want to have fun letting them use the shaker to mix up some NABS (being on school property--I have to leave the alcohol out). I plan to recycle the coffee from the teacher's lounge and make iced coffee, but would like 2 or 3 other ideas as well. I know that you guys will come up with some fabulous fun ideas!

    What about shaking flavors iced coffee??? Maybe go buy some caramel, hazelnut, or other flavor syrups like McD's and do them?? I personally would just buy the caramel, lol.

    I was thinking about using the flavored creamers, would the syrups be better?

    I know here, I can go to Wal-mart or Sam's and buy the same things McD's squirts into the coffees, which does give better taste, again in my opinion.

    Today, girl at McD's said, when I ordered she laughed.

    She asked, what would you like today??

    My reply "I need a large Iced Caramel Coffee"

    She laughed and said, I'll make it right away and left my hubby who joined my on his break for breakfast standing there waiting to order, while she got me my coffee, he was like What the H@@@??

    Once I had my coffee, she said "ER over now we can proceed with the Non ER ordering", and turned to my hubby and took his order.

    I love their coffees, really need to stop, but can't seem to get by without one.

    How about Lemon shake ups?
    Get some of those instant puddings that set in 5 min and shake them, pour them into the martini glasses (or whatever) and let the winner of a drawing get to eat out of them.
    a fruit mocktail... fruit punch crystals, sliced berries (whatever you want/have), ice and water OR Frozen berries instead of ice!

    Squeeze in the juice of your lime and swirl the shaker ten times.
    Strain into 2 large, frozen martini glasses.
    Top each glass with an orange slice and one orange twist.
    Slowly pour one tablespoon of seltzer into each glass (over the orange).
    Serve them up and watch the smiles.

    Fizz-Tini martini
    This non-alcoholic martini looks very cool and is fit the bill for any sober, social drinker. There is a bit of advanced preperation, but as a well prepared host, you should keep a bit of this on hand.

    1/2 cup of peeled, fresh ginger.
    2 cups of water.
    1/4 cup of cane sugar.
    2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
    1 tablespoon of vanilla extract.
    4 ounces of seltzer water.
    2 thin lemon slices.

    Bring your water to a boil and add the ginger.
    Slowly stir in the sugar and vanilla, and reduce the heat to a simmer for fifteen minutes.
    Strain and cool the liquid in the refrigerator.
    Pour three ounces of your ginger water and your seltzer into a shaker 3/4 full with cracked ice.
    Stir the mixture for two full minutes.
    Strain the elixir into two frozen martini glasses.
    Add one tablespoon of lemon juice to each glass.
    Each glass gets a lemon slice on the rim.

    Virgin Green-Apple Martini

    1/2 ounce Granny Smith apple (chopped)
    2 ounces lemon-lime soda
