4 Out of This World Cocktails to Ring In Tonight’s Super Blue Blood Moon

Remember when we thought last year’s solar eclipse was a big deal? Well, turns out that’s SO 2017, and we’re already on our way onward and upward (literally) to the trifecta of celestial shindigs- tonight’s Super Blue Blood Moon. That’s a lot of adjectives to describe the moon. But what does it mean? We’re not only getting two full moons in one month, which is already rare (we haven’t had once since 2015, hence “once in a blue moon,” which never made sense to me until this moment), but this Blue Moon is also happening on the same night as a total lunar eclipse. The last time all of this happened on the same night in the Western hemisphere was 1866. So yeah, we’re going to celebrate… and cele

Best of Brooklyn Beer Fest: Recap

Yesterday at LIC Flea's "Best of Brooklyn Beer and Food Fest" was 9 hours of being up to my elbows in cake balls and I wouldn't have it any other way. Our two special flavors that we made exclusively just for the fair- Boozy Birthday Cake with vodka and Spiced Chocolate Stout with Guinness AND Brandy went over like gangbusters to the point where I'm genuinely considering keeping them in the normal rotation! We sold out of the Boozy Birthday Cake in the first three hours and we had to edit our menu sign to pretend like it never existed in the first place (see below). Did we pull it off? It doesn't matter anyway because we ended up selling out of 4 of our 8 flavors and had to revise our menu s

Come on down, Come on down, It's (Boozy) Cookie Time…

Forget Christmas- it’s Girl Scout Cookie Season, the LEGIT most wonderful time of the year. And here’s why: When you buy Girl Scout cookies, you’re helping provide new and unique experiences for girls to learn essential leadership skills. And while that’s more than enough of a reason why, the list keeps growing... It no doubt calls to mind one of the best movies of all time- Troop Beverly Hills (“what a thrill!”) Thank you, Shelley Long, for bringing that movie into my life. “It's khaki wishes and cookie dreams!” 3. Cookies cookies Tagalongs cookies Tagalongs more cookies Thin Mints are over-rated it’s all about the Tagalongs. So sure, buy Girl Scout cookies (but not the Tagalongs, I call

Celebrate National Buttercrunch Day with These Boozy Versions

It seems like every day is “National [insert obscure reference here] Day” (May 3rd is National Lumpy Rug Appreciation Day, because course it is). So yes, there are some days so weird and terrible that you have to wonder why...just, why. But that day is NOT. TODAY. January 20th = National Buttercrunch Day = YESSSSSSS. Buttercrunch is really just a fancy name for American-Style Toffee, which is a heightened version of English toffee. English toffee is plain, made of sugar and butter. Buttercrunch is toffee that is coated with chocolate and crushed toasted almonds and lightly sprinkled with fairy kisses (America, 1, England, 0). So of course today being today, and me being me, I had to find som

Best Seasonal Cocktails: January Edition

It’s a well known fact that eating seasonal foods translates into fresher, tastier noms. Fruits and vegetables picked at their peak of ripeness have more flavor, and more nutrients too, for that matter. So the same would go to reason then that drinking seasonally is just as healthy, right? Actually, let me rephrase that - the same would go to reason that drinking seasonally IS just as healthy. I’m right. If it counts as a legit serving of fruit (which I’m saying it does), then here are some of the tastiest ways to drink a little healthier right now with January’s most in-season fruits: Kumquat The size and shape of an olive, a kumquat has a surprisingly sweet skin (it’s like an orange in rev

5 Boozy Quick Breads for a Quick Buzz

When I’m experimenting in the kitchen, I usually have a spatula in one hand and a bottle of liquor in the other. It tends to help make these “science” experiments more delicious, more fun, and usually, more messy (Drinking makes me clumsy and I am a true baking scientist that experiments on herself...meaning, lots of taste tests). If I’m not experimenting with new and different boozy cake flavors, you’ll see me adding liquor to whatever else I can get away with. And right now, that’s bread. Here are some of my favorite alcohol-infused sweet breads. They’re easy to make and the perfect opportunity to get away with booze for breakfast. Boozy Whiskey Banana Bread So many great words in one titl

Hot cozy cocktails for cold winter nights (and days)

I don’t think I’ve ever been as cold as I have been in the city the past 4 days. I’ve lived in New York for almost 6 years so I’m used to feet upon feet of dirt-covered snow lining the sidewalks, but Winter Storm Grayson this past weekend was THE. WORST. Whatever the hell a bomb cyclone is, it’s here… and it’s pissed. It’s “take 30-minute scalding hot showers, sleep with a heating pad, wear jeans over leggings over tights" cold. When it’s this cold outside, it’s clearly best to do whatever you can to make your insides as warm as possible. The solution? Hot liquor, obviously (and maybe some boozy cake balls to go with them). So here are some of my favorite hot cocktails to warm your insides a
