We’ve seen all 3 of the Despicable Me movies, Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, and Minions in the theaters. My son’s favorite is the most recent of the three, Minions© 2015 Universal Studios. All rights reserved. The movie was released to DVD on December 8th.
We went to Target to purchase the MetalPak Blu-Ray/DVD Limited Deluxe Edition exclusive to Target as soon as it was released – the metal case is super cool. The Target special edition also includes 40 minutes of exclusive content.
We love to host movie nights and create fun food and drinks for the occasion. Illumination Entertainment’s Minions movie inspired my recipe – who doesn’t find themselves singing “Bah Nan Nan” after watching the movie? I created this simple recipe fun drink recipe for the movie. Italian sodas are a drink we often make at home. My son first had one at a coffee shop and we have since recreated many at home – we have a large collection of syrups so we can make our own ‘coffee house’ drinks. Its fun to try different flavor combinations to create new flavors and come up with a unique name for each recipe. For a lighter drink, omit the cream.
