It’s actually a little chilly and fairly overcast today here in the Hostess City – a rarity these days to be sure – so I’m going where the weather takes me.
This particular cocktail – I call it “Long Winter” – is guaranteed to warm your soul a little in these fading days of winter. It’s packed with not one but two ginger-flavored delicacies and topped off with some plum bitters, all of which are meant to leave you with a toasty feeling inside. And yes, I’m aware that I’m obsessed with ginger beer. It’s okay guys. It’s delicious, so don’t worry about me. Here how to make this toasty treat.
*2 parts Snap (you guys really need to check this stuff out – completely delicious)
*1 part Pimm’s No. 1
*1 part apple juice (whatever you do, use the fancy stuff)
*2 parts ginger beer
*Dash of plum bitters (don’t go overboard!)
Shake all of that tasty, toasty stuff up together – except for the ginger beer of course – and then top it off with the ginger beer. I really dig this one.
Also, in the spirit of keeping promises, I’m finally ready to post my glorious rice ball recipes!! It finally happened guys – I fried something in a pot on my stove, and I didn’t even give myself a 3rd-degree burn! For those of you who know me well, this is a serious accomplishment. I’m quite the clumsy fellow. And it’s a good thing too – the missus won’t let me buy a fry-daddy. Which, I suppose, is really for the best.
Here’s a little sneak peek of what’s in store:
I’m so proud of these little guys!
I’ll be back next week with rice balls in tow. And a better name for them than “rice balls” – I still experience a combination of snickering and feeling uncomfortable every time I say that phrase.
Have great weekends, y’all!!
