Here's The Boozy Summer Drink Menu You've Been Waiting For

If your summer doesn't include a spiked Fruity Pebbles milkshake, you're doing it wrong.

He's best known as the guy behind PornBurger, a food blog where he posted an original burger creation every week for a year.

Like the lobster-stuffed Mac Daddy, the K(h)aleesi burger with red dragon cheese, or the breakfast-style Slumberjack, smothered in hash browns and eggs.

Now the Washington, D.C.–based chef, stylist, and self-proclaimed burger pervert is branching out beyond buns.

"Burgers were the perfect challenge for me because you can do so many things with them," Mat told BuzzFeed Life. "But at the end of the day, it still has to be a burger. So it's nice to not have those restrictions anymore — to go beyond that and show people more playful and diverse stuff."

To celebrate his first cookbook hitting shelves next year, we asked Mat to take the POV that fuels his food — and use it to create a lineup of boozy summer drinks. Here are five of his creations.

Start by fusing Cheetos + tequila into ~TeCheeLa~.

Fill a sealable container with Cheetos, top off with tequila, then let it infuse for at least three hours. Before serving, run the liquid through a strainer or coffee filter.

It's topped with a homemade peanut butter & bacon ice cream — which is 100% worth making if you have an ice cream maker. (If you don't, store-bought ice cream works, too.)

Peanut butter, caramel, or good ol' vanilla = all good choices. (Or learn how to make easy ice cream without a machine here.) For maximum sweet-versus-savory effect, you could also garnish with crispy bacon.

It starts with a scoop of ~magical~ DIY Fruity Pebbles ice cream — made with milk, cream, sugar, eggs, and cereal.

But again, if you don't have an ice cream maker, you can mix Pebbles into store-bought vanilla or try a no-churn version.
