Cuz it’s Summertime! Will Smith’s finest – second only to the bare chest scene from Bad Boys… but i digress.
She’s here! She’s here!
I’m telling y’all… I have waaaaayyy too many flavor combinations in my head. This is just a couple of the flavors I’ve been tossing around in this crazy brain of mine. What doesn’t help is my instagram feed is 50% bars and spirits companies constantly giving me suggestions of cocktails to try and emulate. Madness, i tell you, sheer madness!
As a foodie, i have an entire catalog of flavors in my head. You remember the card catalog at the library, right? or am i dating myself?
This is how my feature flavor menus are born. Summer is all about light and fruity flavors, so i combine this fruit with that cake with “spin the wheel and pick a liquor”. I told you my husband is a compulsive buyer, right? I’m real close to banning him from liquor stores simply because he brings home the oddest, off-radar liquors simply because he likes the bottles. The reason i won’t completely put the kibosh on his spending is because he makes me think, discover and create (see Summertime and Jubilee above). It doesn’t make sense to have a whole bottle of something distilled, aged or fermented sitting on my shelf and not doing something with it. My mom’s even in on the game (see Stella above). It’s because of my son that my brunch menu came to fruition. Seriously, who puts liquor in waffles? No, he didn’t, i did, but it was his idea… But this is how my brain works. It’s constantly putting flavors together to keep you intrigued and surprised.
The premium batter upgrade is essential to this process. There are some things that can’t be accomplished with just a few ingredients. Take my Hipster Juice for example.
Think i’m gonna go watch Bad Boys again… and then I Am Legend. But totally not After Earth. Peace out!
