Recipe: Peanut Butter Jelly Time (aka The Tootsie Roll)

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.

1 oz. Frangelico
1 oz. Chambord
1/2 cup Pomegranate Juice
Seltzer to top (we used Polar Yeti Mischief)

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.

Episode 08: Disgusting Salads, Depressing Times

In Episode 08: Disgusting Salads, Depressing Times, Melissa tells us how to mix up a delightfully sweet and adorably named prohibition era cocktail, the Bee’s Knees, and manages to spill hers all over her laptop. Kate asks an intriguing food question and no one is surprised by Aimee’s response. And lastly, Aimee tells us all about the horrors that are congealed salads (aka Jell-O Salads, aka Jelly Salads, aka the stuff of nightmares), and how they were born out of necessity during the Great Depression. Listen below, or on your preferred podcasting platform!
