This Friday we are so excited to have Rick and Michael Mast from Mast Brothers Chocolate on hand for a signing of their new family chocolate cookbook from 6-7:30pm at our Old City location in Philadelphia (116N 3rd St.)
We’ll be serving some boozy hot chocolate and hosting a variety of giveaways where five lucky winners will walk away with an assortment of goodies courtesy of Mast Brothers Chocolate, Art in the Age, and Spodee. Come munch on chocolate pastries from High Street on Market Cafe and purchase you very own Mast Brothers Chocolate: A Family Cookbook at the store!
It's another Monday and I'm back at it again with some sugary-carb overload. Also: yes, it's seasonal! I've officially used two cans of pumpkin, and am gearing up to use more as the leaves continue to change colors and fall. I love pumpkin pastas to the moon and back, but we all know this vegetable is best enjoyed in a sweet context.
I like to take this part of the year one holiday at a time. What's the use in getting caught up in all of the stressfulness of the ever-increasingly-more-commercialized holiday season? It's not even Thanksgivukkah yet, people! Relax and enjoy the autumn wind and crunchy leaves. If you need a little help doing so, you're going to want to keep reading and give this drink a try. When the good folks over at Art in the Age saw my Gingersnap Cocktail, they loved it and wanted more. They sent me a bottle of their Rhubarb Tea flavored liqueur to try out and to mix into a new delicious concoction. After a couple of tries, I decided that ginger, rhubarb, cranberry, and rosemary would be a winning combination.
We’re always enthusiastic about autumn’s influx of pumpkin-centric sweets: quick breads, cakes and pies—does it get any better? Why, yes, it does! This grown-up spin on the root beer float, featuring one of the season’s best treats (pumpkin beer!), an all-time fave (ice cream) and an unexpected kick (Snap, a spicy, gingersnap-inspired spirit) has us rethinking our go-to desserts. Try whipping up a batch for your next football party—this cocktail is a crowd-pleaser that will leave ‘em cheering (even if your team doesn’t).
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Vanilla Ice Cream
HOW TO MAKE IT…
Add two scoops of ice cream to each glass. Splash with Snap (about 1/2 oz or so) and sprinkle with cinnamon. Top off with your favorite pumpkin beer, pop in a straw and sip sweetly
