Glitter, Glue and Gluttony Mardi Gras Cocktail Recipe: Adelaide Swizzle

Adelaide Swizzle

1.5 oz of Old New Orleans Silver Rum (Since I can’t get this in CA I used 10 Cane Rum, you can use any good quality light rum)

.5 oz lime juice

5 dashes Peychaud’s bitters

.75 oz Secret Ingredient (Pssssst, it is Taylor’s Velvet Falernum Liqueur…don’t tell anyone)

.25 oz simple syrup

Club Soda

Lime wedge for garnish

Com­bine the rum, lime juice, bit­ters, sim­ple syrup and the Falernum in a cock­tail shaker filled with ice and shake vig­or­ously.  Strain into a tall glass filled with ice, top with the club soda, gar­nish with a lime wedge and serve.

I fell in love with the Adelaide Swizzle at the Swizzle Stick Bar at Cafe Adelaide in NOLA

Glitter, Glue and Gluttony: Washington’s Drunken Gummy Cherries Recipe

Looking for a way to celebrate President’s Day? Having a bunch of people over to reenact the crossing of the Delaware? If so, you need to make Washington’s Drunken Gummy Cherries!!!

What you will need:

Russian Standard Vodka (or any good vodka that doesn’t have a strong flavor)

Haribo Gummy Cherries

A glass dish or container

Plastic wrap

Place the gummy cherries in the glass dish. I used a 9x11 Pyrex baking dish because the cherries can be spread out in a single layer, but you can use any glass bowl, dish, or container.

Add Russian Standard Vodka

Completely cover the cherries and make sure there is an extra inch or two of vodka in the dish. These gummy cherries absorb a great deal of vodka.

Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 4-5 days. Make sure to stir every 8-12 hours and add more vodka if needed. Remember you cannot use too much vodka because any vodka left in the dish will be delicious gummy cherry flavored vodka.

4-5 days later you will have delicious and boozy gummy cherries.

WORD OF WARNING: These gummy cherries absorb a great deal of alcohol so tread lightly and imbibe slowly.

365 Days of Bacon - Day #3 Bacon Advent

Bacon Bloody Marys (made with homemade bacon vodka)

Today I decided to both eat and drink my bacon in the form of a bacon bloody mary. These delicious concoctions contain my famous homemade bacon vodka (recipe follows,) hot wing sauce, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, bloody mary mix, and a garnish of beef stick, pickle, cheese, and black pepper bacon. EPIC!!!

Bacon Vodka


750 ml bottle of vodka

4-5 strips of bacon

Cook 4-5 strips of bacon. Do not make the bacon crisp, it has to remain floppy and pliable. Pour out approximately 1/4 cup of vodka from the bottle (you need to make room for the bacon)…this can be your chef’s treat. Place the bacon in the bottle of vodka. Put cap on bottle and place in refrigerator for 3 weeks. After 3 weeks you will have what looks like something out of a pathology lab, but is in reality delicious bacon flavored vodka. At this point you can place a coffee filter in a strainer and filter out the fat globules and bits of bacon and put the bacon vodka in a clean bottle. Personally, I like to leave the fat globules and bacon in the vodka.
