Lemon Meringue Pie Cocktail/Shot

Ok, confession time.  I have an embarrassing secret.  I have hijacked my son's brand new PS3 and play Skyrim all day.  I am not even exaggerating about all day.  I will start when the boy goes to school, and find that he is home the next minute.  Not being a totally irresponsible parent, I make sure everyone eats, they get to and from school and all their activities,  that there are clean clothes and dishes, but only the bare minimum.  It started the week I was really sick and there wasn't much else I could do, but having returned to health, I have no excuse.  Needless to say, I have neglected not only the blog but the new recipe thing.  I am going to do better, as soon as I rid Skyrim of all evil and tyranny! :)  While I may have cobbled together leftovers for dinner, I do have a new discovery to share with you, a totally yummy cocktail or shot depending on you proclivities.  I used diet lemonade, and I hate diet drinks, and I still thought it was good.  It tasted remarkably like a lemon meringue pie.  It is best when made with fresh lemon juice or homemade lemonade made from fresh lemon juice, but in a pinch any lemon juice will do. I have also made a creamcicle drink from the whipped cream vodka and orange soda, and I hear that with root beer it tastes like a float.
