Liquor Muffin

I spent some time in the lab testing my concept of Liquor Muffin. I even came up with a slogan.

You know you wanna Liquor Muffin!

Yep, thought that one up myself.

I really did spend some time testing which liquor to serve with which flavored muffin. I had picked up 4 muffins: chocolate chocolate chip, cherry almond, chocolate chip, and banana chocolate chip. Yeah, I was thinking something along the cookies and cream route. I was slightly limited to the alcohol I had to work with. At home I had whisky, Irish Cream, run, spiced rum, coconut rum, and tequila. Vodka was quickly ruled out, though it might work on some kind of pineapple orange muffin.

The Irish Cream worked well with all the chocolate chip muffins, but it was messy. It did not soak into the muffin as quickly as the rum and whisky did. I did think the whisky was damn good on the chocolate chip muffin. Not bad on the cherry almond either.

The coconut rum worked well on the chocolate chocolate chip muffin. Think of Christmas time and rum balls. Tasty!

Meanwhile, the spiced rum didn't fare with any of the muffins. I thought it would do add some zing to the banana choc chip but it did not.

I still think I am onto something here. But more research is needed. I really should follow up on my original test plan. Take some muffins into a bar and let the bartenders get creative. I am sure they could come up with something really good.

I couldn't but noticed I dressed like a pint of beer today. I noticed that in the mirror this morning. I look like a Black & Tan. I am bloody good enough to drink! Great, now the seed has been planted. My thirst will build throughout the day. I may have to go out for lunch.

Speaking of which, I just received the lunch menu for next week. They are serving ribs, cornbread, and sweet potatoes next Wednesday. All in honor of Black History month. Umm...is it me or does that just seem a bit like stereotyping?

In college freshman year, the cafeteria did a Black History Month dinner. it was the most racsit thing I have ever seen.

The Menu:
Fried Chicken
Bar-B-Que Ribs
Sweet Potato Pie
Black Eyed Peas
Greens
Watermelon
Corn Bread


The only thing missing was malt Liquor.

I was laughing the whole way through the line.

This is a great idea!!! You better get yourself a copyright, etc. before you lose out on any money you might make when someone else gets to market first.

Had to laugh reading this one... I got this picture in my head of STB standing in his kitchen...baking muffins....all this stuff spread across the counter (bottles lined up, flour & sugar everywhere)...with flour on his nose.... chocolate smeared across his face...jamming & singing to monster ballads (every rose has its thorn)....in his black and tan outfit covered in flour.... ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS!!!! Dayum we could've got this on tape too!!! BTW, you are baking some for group camp!! RIGHT?!?
