The tropical flavors of lemon grass and pineapple make this twist on the Lemon Drop a special treat for the summer. A lemon grass infused simple syrup, Stoli Citros Vodka and the very floral St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur deliver further depth of flavor and help make this a solid step up beyond your first Lemon Drop.
Mezcal is an often misunderstood spirit. Although similar to Tequila, it is worlds apart in many ways. Tim Master, Director of Specialty Spirits Division and Trade Education at Frederick Wildman & Sons, brought Ilegal Mezcal to share with Kathy and taught her a bit about this robust and unique spirit. Tim also shared his recipe for a wonderful winter Mezcal cocktail, the Maguey Harvest.
For these Rice Krispy Treats, we mixed in kettle-cooked potato chips for added crunch and a salty kick, upped the decadence with chocolate-covered peanuts, and added another level of sweetness with toasty graham crackers.
A Menu Worthy of Returning to Twin Peaks
In anticipation of the return of Twin Peaks, we look back at the best food moments from the cult classic.
Slow Cooker Pork Ramen
A simple but delicious version of Japanese ramen, this soup starts with pork cooked to perfect tenderness in the crock pot, with garlic, ginger, leeks, mushrooms, and onions rounding out the flavors. The noodles are cooked separately just before serving, then the shredded pork and fragrant broth, with a little soy and sesame oil added, are ladled over top. A soft boiled egg makes a great garnish, as do shredded scallions or chopped baby spinach. Add some chile oil or Sriracha if you want to spice things up.
