Peanut Butter Jelly Time is the featured cocktail on Episode 13 “The Great Peanut Butter Debate”. This is an odd duck of a cocktail that we made up. The flavors somehow mingle to taste exactly like a Tootsie Roll and nothing like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Oops.
Ingredients: 1 oz. Frangelico 1 oz. Chambord 1/2 cup Pomegranate Juice Seltzer to top (we used Polar Yeti Mischief)
Instructions: Combine all ingredients in a shaker except for the seltzer. Shake vigorously until shaker is frosty. Strain into a glass over ice and top with a seltzer of you choice.
In this episode Melissa nd Aimee talk about the grosses things they’ve ever eaten. Aimee attempts to answer Melissa’s burning questions about Nazis, Fanta, and catastrophe water. Melissa mixes up a WW2 era cocktail called The Suffering Bastard, and both ladies bemoan Kate’s absence.
The Suffering Bastard 1 oz. Bourbon or Brandy (We used NH made Smoky Quartz Small Batch Bourbon) 1 oz. London Dry Gin (We used Sipsmith) 1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice 2 dashes angostura bitters Ginger Ale (We used Fever Tree) Mint to garnish
Combine all ingredients except the ginger ale in a shaker with ice and shake. Poor into a glass over ice, top with ginger ale. Enjoy!
In Episode 11 Melissa and Aimee discuss Boston cuisine. Because Boston is so big, and Aimee is so lazy, they mostly stick to Boston’s historic North End. Roast beef, fried clams, and cannoli, OH MY! Melissa mixed up a cocktail called Ward 8 and Aimee dug into the rich immigrant history of Boston’s North End. The two once again come to the conclusion that American food would be nothing without immigrant contributions, and Aimee resists Hamilton references without Kate to exchange knowing glances with her.
