Let Your Tastebuds Be Your Passport With A Splash of Licor 43

Cuarenta y tres means 43 and is reference to the 43 ingredients of Licor 43 liquer.  I'm not sure of all 43 ingredients used to make Cuarenta y Tres, but with the subtle hint of vanilla, I'm sure it ranks among the 43.  Velvety smooth with aromatic citrus tones which can be served warm, chilled, frozen or incorporated into some of your favorite desserts like white chocolate mousse and madelines. 

1/2 cup Licor 43
2 cups sweet cream
250 grams white chocolate
340 grams berry
Top with whipped cream. 

There's even a recipe to amp up your Madelines recipe with a hint of Licor 43.  This ain't grandma's rum cake.  This is a very sultry, complex liquer sure to delight your guests.  

I tried it on the rocks and detected so many aromas.  There's definitely vanilla, perhaps a little citrus and some spices, maybe cinnamon.  Licor 43 is so complex, each sip kept me guessing so needless to say, Licor 43 did not disappoint.   I also tried it with pineapple juice and there was definitely a little pina colada in the making.  I'll have to work on that recipe and share.
My pantry is filled with various syrups, extracts and liquers which I use to flavor baked goods and I will definitely have to experiment a little with Licor 43I have a few rum cake recipes and may try switching the rum for a little Licor 43.  I have a few weeks until the next #GNO (Girl's Night Out) is scheduled at my house, so I'll be sure to let you know what the girls say.
In the words of my fellow foodies, if you're only drinking your wine or liquers, you are missing out on a dining experience.  Let your tastebuds be your passport.

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
