I know Wednesday is Food Day, and I’ll have a recipe or two tomorrow, but I had to share this.
A monthly Twitter event for bloggers to mingle over cocktails. Once the buzz sets in, we set a silly topic and blog like drunken fools. You don’t technically have to blog or drink to join the fun, every party needs a designated driver after all.
This was the first one I was able to attend. I remembered that, at a prior one, attendees were challenged to create new cocktails and, mistakenly believing that this was still a part of the festivities, I made one up.
Good God, that’s a half cup of bourbon!! Apple juice my butt. #blogcrawl

But it actually was apple juice.
- fruitcake mix
- chopped pecans and walnuts
- apple juice
- cinnamon stick
Combine fruitcake mix, raisins, nuts, and a bit of bourbon and let it sit for a couple of hours. Put some of this mix in the bottom of a wine glass. Add a jigger of bourbon and top it off with apple juice. Put a stick of cinnamon in.
It doesn’t look pretty, but it tasted great! Plus, the nuts float, and that was fun.
p.s. I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies with a delicious vegetarian dish.
