I know Wednesday is Food Day, and I’ll have a recipe or two tomorrow, but I had to share this.
Holly Jahangiri and Cairn Rodrigues invited me to a blogcrawl on Twitter last Saturday. According to the invitation:
A monthly Twitter event for bloggers to mingle over cocktails. Once the buzz sets in, we set a silly topic and blog like drunken fools. You don’t technically have to blog or drink to join the fun, every party needs a designated driver after all.
This was the first one I was able to attend. I remembered that, at a prior one, attendees were challenged to create new cocktails and, mistakenly believing that this was still a part of the festivities, I made one up.
I was making fruitcake that day, so I created the Fruitcake Cocktail. Here are the ingredients:So Holly says, “What’s in the measuring cup?” and I says, “Apple juice.” And she says:
But it actually was apple juice.
- fruitcake mix
- chopped pecans and walnuts
- apple juice
- cinnamon stick
Combine fruitcake mix, raisins, nuts, and a bit of bourbon and let it sit for a couple of hours. Put some of this mix in the bottom of a wine glass. Add a jigger of bourbon and top it off with apple juice. Put a stick of cinnamon in.
It doesn’t look pretty, but it tasted great! Plus, the nuts float, and that was fun.
Another part of the crawl is for participants to take prompts and blog on them. Here is Holly’s. Here is Cairn’s. I left before things got that far.
p.s. I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies with a delicious vegetarian dish.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Dracullama.
