Endless Poptails: Cherry Apple Whiskey Sour

Endless Poptails: Cherry Apple Whiskey Sour
We ESers like our whiskey combinations and we’re betting you will too. Never mindful of the rules, this week we created a blasphemous bartending nightmare by skipping the shaker for some rotating blades. Yep, everything is headed for the blender including the whiskey. Um, please muffle all outraged screams until you have tried this. Along with the whiskey are some sweet cherries, tart apples and a lime to create a popsicle that will assist you with obtaining your daily fruit serving. So while we may not be rule-minded we’re a thoughtful bunch and giving you two options for your whiskey.

Popsicles! Not to sound full of myself, but I’m pretty sure this is the be all, end all of popsicle roundups. There’s a little something for everyone: the foodies, the purists, the ones who prefer frozen yogurt, the ones who prefer a little alcohol, everyone. Tweny-five options to be exact. The post I did last summer on the cold guys was one of DC’s most viewed ever, so I thought you’d all be up for another round – was I right? Click on the photo to be taken to the recipe.

cheesy, oozy guacamole bean dip I first had this at a party about 10 years ago. That recipe was my inspiration for this healthier version. We like to make this for football games.

Ice lolly recipes : Ice lolly cocktails : Ice pops : Healthy ice pop This week, I have developed a bit of an unhealthy magnum obsession. It has happened before, I buy a mini magnum box and slowly work my way through them, whether on the sofa with a good episode of Greys Anatomy, or simply for lunch if there’s nothing else in the house (like yesterday for example.) This got me thinking, there must be healthier and DIY options for frozen treats, particularly if any sunny weather makes an appearance… (For the record if you’re wondering why I’m writing about frozen food in the middle of the worst summer ever here in the UK:a. I can’t refrain from doing summer stuff forever andb. it was pleasantly warm and humid here yesterday, although not exactly sunny.)

The 20 Best Movie Drinking Games It's St Patrick's Day, and no doubt the pressure is on to head downtown for a few jars this evening (or, if you're a student, when doors open). For the budding film fanatic, though, that cuts into viewing time, so here's the ideal way to keep inebriates and cinephiles alike happy.

Sci-fi, gangster flicks, comedies and thrillers, classics and modern hits are all catered for. All of these will get you wasted while doing the public service of keeping you off the streets.

Potato Rings with Homemade Buttermilk Ranch If french fries and onion rings ever got married and had a baby, I think it would be something like this…a potato ring. You have a light and crispy outer coating with a soft potato and caramelized onion center…why? Because we can I guess, who knows…but it’s kind of fun, right?! My boyfriend and his friends have this thing where every super bowl they have a “Deep-Fry Fest” where, well they deep fry everything; so if you’re anything like my boyfriend you now have another “Deep Fry Fest” recipe to use!

Homemade Graham Crackers I ventured into crackers this weekend. Golden brown graham crackers. Small ones of course. These are only about 2 inches square. Combine flour, dark brown sugar, baking soda and salt and you’re on your way.

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes Recipe As I mentioned on Friday, I have been doing some experimentation with the beer and chocolate combination. The Guinness-chocolate ice cream that I made totally kicked butt, so I couldn’t wait to see how I liked beer and chocolate in my cake. The answer? I like it, a whole heck of a lot. This was my first time doing Guinness-chocolate cakes, and I was totally optimistic that I would love it, and I was definitely right. These cupcakes are fashioned after the popular drink that consists of a shot of Baileys Irish Cream and Irish whiskey dropped into a pint of Guinness. Strawberry Ginger Ale Terrine For the first time in many months, strawberries taste good again! During colder weather when fruits have to be shipped in from far away places, they are usually much too sour. I find them inedible. In our region, winter strawberries may be perfectly red and beautiful on the shelf, but they just don't taste ripe.

www.menshealth.com/mhlists/gourmet-sandwiches-for-guys/printer.php From the molten yolk and bacon crunch of a hand-held breakfast, to the gooey charm of grilled cheese for lunch, nothing matches the simple pleasures of well-made sandwiches. They're quick to assemble, infinitely adaptable, easy to eat, and immediately satisfying—the very definition of good food. The 25 sandwiches you're about to meet can be thrown together during the average basketball halftime or, with practice, during the seventh-inning stretch. (Who needs hot dogs, anyway?)
