June 11, 2013

This week’s Alphabet Soup Podcast is starring…. INFUSIONS!

But first!

Cocktail Memoirs – It’s like a personal narrative, only in cocktail form! We talk about events in our week with inventive drinks that represent what’s going on in our lives. Send us your cocktail memoirs–or send us your life events and we’ll turn them into a cocktail!

Our cocktail today comes from our listeners, Courtney & Eric of  Cook Like a Champion. They like to drink Gin & Tonics (G&Ts) while watching Game of Thrones (GoT) on Sundays. Have you ever made up themed drinks for a TV show or movie? Tweet us your favorite themed drink!

Name that Recipe – Can you name the recipe before we can? We’ve got a new game sort of like name that tune, only we’re listing ingredients to see if you can guess the wacky recipe! Hilarity will ensue.

MaraschiNOOOO!! Have you ever wondered how maraschino cherries are made? Or how they get to be red (or green… or blue, apparently?) Autumn’s got the scoop, complete with oddly tranquil video. Plus, two red dye 40-free ways to make maraschino cherries yourself. And Kelly’s got red dye 40 horror stories from the bees of Brooklyn.
PLUS! Autumn gives us an update on her fire escape garden, including the highly infusable herbs she’s growing.
