Merry Thanksgiving

22 Nov

This should be the traditional way to start of a day of family, drinking, and football. Spiked motherfuckin hot chocolate. I was planning on making the real shit but my roommate brought home the instant stuff and I’m lazy. I heated some milk on the stove, topped this shit with whipped cream (insta-can style) and topped it with mini chocolate chips and some cinnamon powder I got from the dollar store. It’s like the fanciest hobo chocolate there’s ever been! I couldn’t decide which booze to spike it with, so I started out with Maple Syrup Burnett’s – glory be thy name – and couldn’t bring myself to even try it with the brandy because I loved it so much. It is delicious. I will give a free pro-tip: don’t use cold vodka as it will make your hot chocolate much less hot. You’re probably also wondering why the brandy was in the freezer. Guess what? Fuck you I put shit in the freezer when I’m not drinking it. I’ve never had brandy before to my knowledge. It tasted like weird whiskey. All in all, this hot chocolate drink was great fun.

If you’re looking for a great hot chocolate recipe I stumbled across this one for Guinness, Whiskey, and Bailey’s Hot Chocolate. If I were less lazy I would have tried this one today, but fuck it. I’m not. Cheers!

Maple Syrup Burnett’s Vodka

22 Oct

I fucking apologize, alright? I know I haven’t written any posts inlike  a year. The thing is, it’s not my fault. It’s Burnett’s fault. They made maple syrup vodka. MAPLE. SYRUP. VODKA. They made it to where you could literally drink maple syrup and get shitfaced. I’m not calling it maple syrup flavored vodka for a reason. This stuff has the vaguest of burns and the sweetest of tastes. Every time I drink it I have a split second of doubt where I think it can’t possibly be as good as I think it is and then it’s swirling around in my mouth cave tasting better than most real fake maple syrups.

Therefore I have no productivity, and this may be the end of my stint as a productive member of adult society. And blogger. This is the best flavored vodka to ever exist. The pinnacle of non-Pinnacle. I want to use it in butter cream frosting for a carrot cake. Or make maple martinis with a bacon dust rim, garnished with a strip of chocolate covered bacon. Or just pour it all over god damn waffles. I have never loved anything as much in my life, including family. Luckily only 3 of my grandparents just rolled over in their graves and I’m pretty sure the remaining one doesn’t know how to internet. Go fucking buy this right now. Unless there’s only one bottle left, in which case save that shit for me.
