While Magens Bay was our destination of choice one afternoon during our St. Thomas vacation, it had been brought to our attention by a couple of people that we had to stop by Udder Delite because, well, … boozy milkshakes.

A response had to be formulated, however, since the only other option was going nowhere this winter.
