MB challenge May 2013 "Rodent"

Well, I can't whine too much about Rodent (this month's challenge creatively supplied by Diana Moses Botkin) after my March idea of "Ides of March".

I decided to do another in my drink series, and searched high and low for a drink with 'mouse' in it...finally did a wikipedia search for rodent and learned there are all manner of members of the rodent family. Beavers, squirrels, and I stopped there. Found a drink called the "Pink Squirrel" and I was on my way.

don't substitute Amaretto because it doesn't have the red color...and you need that for the pink.

The only other issue I had was a business meeting the entire week of the challenge, and the little fact that I have a 300 page 8.5x11" full color book deadline two days ago :) I'm proud of Wicki that she was able to manage everything.

Welcome, Julie, to our merry band of humorous artists!

Way to go, Dear Vicki: I love the drink series! I personally have never heard of a Pink Squirrel before, but it sounds very interesting.

Diana, looks like pepto-bismol to me...I typically don't like sweet creamy drinks. Let me know if it is good! BTW, Bloody Caesar was one of my paintings selected for the IAPS show :)
