DIY Cocktail Onions

Cocktail onions may seem like an outdated garnish. A lot of bars don’t even bother to stock them. However, when done right, they add a nice savory finish to a good stiff drink.

Of course, you can’t make a Gibson without them.

Pico de Gallo

Serving chips and salsa along with your margaritas on Cinco de Mayo? Try this simple pico de gallo recipe. It takes no skill and tastes much better than the stuff you can buy in the store. I like it spicy, so I left the seeds in the jalapeños. Remove the seeds for less heat. I also like it a little crunchy, so I included bell peppers. Mix it with some avocado, and you have a … Read more

Beer and Pretzel Marshmallows

What’s better than kicking back with some beer and pretzels? Why, adding some chocolate and marshmallow to the mix, of course! Beer and pretzel marshmallows are a brilliant creation.

Confectioner Truffle Truffle makes beer marshmallows (I didn’t know there was such a thing), dips them in chocolate and tops them off with a beer and pretzel brittle. Sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy … with beer. Though they were created for the Super Bowl, I don’t think … Read more
