CHICAGO (CBS) — As a child, many of us remember coming home from school and being welcomed by mom, holding a plate of Oreos and a glass of milk.

If you don’t have that memory, your mom either didn’t love you or was a vegan.

Oreo has expanded since the classic, original cookie, adding Double Stuf and flavors like mint, fudge and even Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup–among others.

Now, Oreo is bringing us fruit-flavored varieties, like watermelon, lemon, berry and limeade.

All this got me to thinking: It seems like these new flavors need new dunking partners.

I came up with these:

The Fruit Salad

Separate the Oreos and stack at least three different flavors together. After taking a bite, take a large swig or orange soda.

Here I am in the CBS 2 test kitchen. (Actually the news conference room):

The Don Jose Antonio de Cuervo

The limited edition Limeade Orao.

The limited edition Limeade Orao.

I wasn’t able to find the Limeade Oreos downtown, but there have been reported sightings of the cookie at Meijer.

With the lime shortage cause a spike in prices, the limeade flavor comes at a perfect time.

This is pretty straight forward: Pour a shot of your favorite tequila and add salt on your hand, lick the salt, drink the shot and then eat the Oreo.

As an alternative, you can combine tequila, margarita mix, ice and a dozen Limeade Oreos in a blender.

Enjoy!

Thank You Berry Much

In between two Berry Oreos, spread some Cool Whip and fuse the two cookies together. Add more Cool Whip to the top and garnish with one half of a Mint Oreo.

Watermelon Oreo

The Electric Watermelon

Take a package of Watermelon Oreos and carefully scrape the filling into a mixing bowl and add stir in generous amounts of vodka. Pour the mixture into Martini glasses. Place glasses in freezer for about an hour. Garnish with Cool Whip and half of a scraped cookie!

Lemon Oreos

The Ginger Lemon Whiskey Fizz

In a tall glass, pour a good ginger beer (I like A.J. Stephans, but you have to order it online) over 2 ounces of whiskey and ice. Float two Lemon Oreos on top. As you drink the cocktail allow the cookies to get soaked before eating.
