Orange Freeze

When I was a little girl, my Mother and I use to go to a drive-in called "Hot Shoppes", similar to Sonic Drive-In.

It's here where you could get a Mighty Mo, this fantastic double-decker CheeseBurger with their special sauce, shredded lettuce, pickles and tomatoes or The Slim Jim, a Ham and Cheese sub with their "Special Sauce", shredded lettuce and tomato. The sauce is simply a variation of my "Whatchacallit" sauce.

The "Hot Shoppes" dessert specialty was the "Hot Fudge Cake"....plain yellow cake topped with vanilla ice cream and warm hot fudge drizzled over it, then of course a big dollop of whip cream and a cherry!

Last but not least, and tht title of this post was their famous "Orange Freeze" served in a tall glass!

2 cups orange sherbet or sorbet
1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup milk
1 sprig fresh spearmint


Put the sherbet, juice, and milk in a blender and blend for 15 seconds or just until smooth.

Pour the orange freeze into a tall glass and garnish with spearmint sprig.
