Fizzy Trix Vodka

Last week I was invited to a Hello Cereal Lovers event hosted by General Mills serving creations by Justin Warner.    As soon as I arrived and started to taste all these amazing cereal dishes my mind started to wonder quickly.   I usually think of Cereal as something I splash milk on and call it a day, or occasionally bake cookies and make granola bars with. But savory?  I never thought of cereal as savory but that has all changed.  By thinking out of the (cereal) box I can totally see  how cereal can be incorporated into dinner dishes and you will see a few recipes in the upcoming weeks as I try them out.   While at the event I had one amazing rotini pasta dish and one extra delicious split pea soup – both had cereal in it. I hope you’re intrigued by this, because you’re soon to be hungry!

As soon as I got to the event I was greeted with smiles, then quickly offered a Fizzy Trix drink. Let me tell you a few things:
I accepted this drink because all I heard was “Trix”.
I don’t drink Vodka.
I started to drink it and quickly felt my cheeks become flushed.
I found a recipe book at a nearby table and quickly realized I was drinking Vodka.
I really enjoyed this Fizzy Vodka Trix drink.  Alot.
I quickly started to dance on tables.
They asked me to leave.

Ok the last 2 things aren’t true.  In fact I was offered another Fizzy Trix drink but declined because I have a fear with alcohol that I will become that stranger on the subway home.    Random:  Once on the way home Matthew and I were sitting on the subway, and a intoxicated man placed his hand on Matthew’s thigh and quickly stroked very high up.  Matthew removed his hand. I giggled crazily. The man awoke embarrassed, confused, and then passed out again.  It was a highlight of my year.

So for you Fizzy Drink lovers out there, I think you’re going to love this recipe.  Next time friends are over at our home I’m going to make them and everyone is going to fall in love!   Just no touching strangers on the subway on the way home. :)

At Justin Warner's Cereals Lover Creations event, finished this drink then realized its Fizzy Trix with Vodka.  They are going to have to carry me out of this event.

Oh, hey there!

WP_20131015_041.jpg
The place was decorated with vintage General Mills boxes. Look at the Rocky Road, Yummy Mummy and Trix ones. Amazing, right?

WP_20131015_052.jpg
And Count Chocula and Boo-Berry (my absolute favorite!)

WP_20131015_040.jpg
Lucky Charms (another favorite!) and a flower vase full of cereal!

WP_20131015_045.jpg
This was the Split Pea Soup I was talking about above. It was so savory and creamy.  Don’t worry, I will be making this on the blog soon!

Then we went back to the kitchen and it was stocked of everything you can think of to cook with.

    Trix was one of my favorite cereal growing up. This drink has my name all over it! And I’ll try not to fondle strangers on my on my way home. ;)

  3. Katie

    How fun!! I hate vodka too.

    I LOVED all those cereals growing up – Trix and Lucky Charms and Boo Berry and the Count. Remember when Trix were shaped like the fruits they were supposed to be? Genius. I can’t believe they don’t do that anymore. Whatever happened to Cookie Crisp? I miss those.

    • Pamela

      Boo Berry is the best, it’s still my favorite!

    • Pamela

      The scent! Oh Jamie, I’m sorry that you have to deal with this! ;) Enjoy your cereal!

  30. jackie @ Marin mama cooks

    That is one crazy looking but totally fun drink girl. I think those would just go down too easy and I would be regretting it in the morning :) I love drinking anything pink.
    Cereal and savory?I would have never put those two together in the same category, but I will trust you that it works! Looks like a fun event! xoxo, Jackie

    • Pamela

      Was lots of fun Jackie and the color of the drinks were pretty!

  31. Oh, I miss cereal SO much! I’m totally jealous ;)

    • Pamela

      I’ll eat some in your honor Jennifer!

  32. Koko

    Omg!! I was so curious about this event when I saw you post about it on Instagram! That drink looks insane!! I happen to love vodka and I also have been that stranger on the train before LOL I better proceed with caution.

    • Pamela

      Hahaha, you behave Koko!

  33. Gloria // Simply Gloria

    You just made me laugh out loud about after you started drinking this beverage! Too funny…and very yummy looking. I’d drink this in a heartbeat!

    • Pamela

      Glad you enjoyed Gloria! :)

  34. Aimee / Wallflower Girl

    Waaaaaa? This is so crazy! But I love those cereal dispenser things! And I too am scared of vodka – once and never again… never, ever again… The rest sounds delicious though ;-)

    • Pamela

      I know, it frightens me too!

  35. laurasmess

    This post blows my mind a little bit. Cereal in ravioli and soup?!? Wow. Weirdly creative! I can’t wait to read about more of the creations from this cereal event. Love the description of the Trix cocktail. I NEVER would’ve thought of cereal in a cocktail… that Justin guy is a genius :)
