Santa von Klause

Totally delicious, and a crowd pleasing strawberry chocolate, you could make these tomorrow!

You will need:
Strawberry Jello (we used D'gari*),
A little squeeze of chocolate sauce (optional, but we used it)
Chocolate flavored vodka/rum/liquor/whatever*
Red Food Coloring (optional)
A loaf pan
Sharp knife
White gel food coloring (I got ours at Fantes)+ a tooth pick applicator
Santa Cupcake Picks (I got these at Dino's), trim the picks so they aren't so long.

Spiced Old City

On my way to work, I have the honor of breezing past America's most boring historic sites: Liberty Bell, something called Independence Hall, and several places Ben Franklin once, I don't know, mailed a letter or something. I feel bad for families of grouchy children being dragged from the (wasn't actually) Betsy Ross House to the Merchant Exchange-so I'm ready with suggestions for Federal-Era overdosed tourists.

B.L.B (Bacon, Lettuce, Bloody Mary)

As grunt workers of the service industry, we have our finger on the pulse of what is 'hot' in dining. The ebb and flow of nutrient popularity based on a multitude of requests. Since we get inspiration from every aspect of our lives, this shot is for all my gluten free people. Say Hay! Denying yourselves the tasty goodness of bread (and toast) and by default, the most delicious of bread based fare, the B.L.T.

This B.L.T. in addition to being gluten free, alcohol filled, and sans mayo, differs from tradition in one more way. Instead of T(omato) it's B(loody Mary). Perfect for brunch parties, Lunch parties or a quiet night at home with a good book.

The B.L.B.
Layer 1:
Bloody Mary Mix (recipe below)
Layer 2:
Bacon infused vodka
Maple syrup
Layer 3:
Lettuce leaf
Garnish with Lime zest

It's the Thyme of the Season...
When Love runs High

We know many people believe that spring is the time for love running high, but we personally feel extra loving as the temperature cools and you just want to hug up on some warmth. In honor of this very special time we made some Thyme infused simple syrup. We combined it with clementine peel infused vodka and fresh squeezed Clementine juice in order to help increase vitamin C intake.

Gotta fend off those sniffles if you want your warmth to share a kiss.

The Clementhyme:

Kawaii Smartie Skulls!

 These skulls are similar in appearance, but different in technique to the Frida Kahlo Sugar skull made earlier in the year, and-are-our third skull themed jello shot.

American By Birth, Southern by a Technicality 
It's really hot here in Philly, and I'm from the South, so I'm some sort of authority on commenting about the weather. It feels like you are submerged in a bowl of ramen noodles. I was waiting for the bus today and had an honest fear that my capillaries would explode, that I would somehow die from heat exposure on my commute.

So, it's way way too hot to jell: it's too hot to leave my air-condioned bedroom (the only air conditioned room in the house), go to the store for ingredients, operate the stove top, or text my landlord about the fridge being broken (okay, I should probably do that soon).

So to tide you over, I'm giving you something from the B-Squad Vault.
The B- Squad are the shots that, for whatever reason, we don't feel are up to snuff, but we completed and photographed regardless. Sometimes we type up a post and save them as blog drafts, unable it press Publish; sometimes they are just things we make for fun (like the Glass Ceiling) that we don't wanna clutter the blog with.
Either way, here ya go...

Basil Seed Drink
Pitaya husk and pulp

We filled one half of the pitaya (Dragon Fruit) with a pitaya pulp and plum vodka gelatin, and the other half with a basil seed and plum vodka gelatin. The basil seed shots were favored over the pitaya pulps, though we did come up with a delicious vegetarian version with pitaya pulps that we will post soon.
