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?
