Episode 52:

March 4, 2014

We’re back! We missed you! We love you! Did we mention we’re back?
This week, everybody’s making a comeback, from the gals on this podcast to that never-ending bottle of caramel vodka!

Autumn had to deal with some big deal life stuff, so we took a little siesta for few months, but she’s all healed and ready to dive back in! We’re so glad she’s back to 100% and so glad this podcast is back too!

This week’s Cocktail Memoir is all about #girlpower, Girl Scout Samoa Cookies and shots to the face.
Remember those shots in college you may have done in college involving a Hershey’s syrup bottle poured directly in your mouth? Well, Kelly’s giving it a bit of an upgrade and making it a smidge more classy. Check out her blog, Kelly Bakes, for the Samoa Shot recipe!
For a full-on cocktail, check out the Samoa Cocktail, which inspired this shot!

For the first time in history, Autumn has a cocktail fail. Turns out Samoa Infusions aren’t a thing, or maybe they are…just not successful this time. (but coconut Ciroc is, apparently)

LUCKILY, Autumn came back like Jordan wearing the 4-5 and made (wait for it) JELLO SAMOA SHOTS. Yup, you read right. Head on over to her blog, Autumn Makes and Does, to get the recipe!

Remember that questionable damson plum gin that Autumn made? That made a comeback too.

In citrus news: Kelly made blood orange bitters & Autumn gives us the how-to for Kumquat-infused gin from the Lee Brothers’ Cookbook.

Crazy addictive, four-ingredient lime ice cream from Food52. Whaaaaat. Autumn is OBSESSED.

Kelly joined Bourbon Club and we GUSH over Kate of Snowflake Kitchen and her amazing bitters. If you don’t follow her, you totally should because Maple Vanilla Coconut Bitters. (and because she’s a fantastic person)

Kelly introduces us to an online curated bourbon/booze collection, Caskers and asks, What inspires your new alcohol purchases? Would you buy booze online before you try it? Or do you research ahead of time? Tweet at us or leave us a comment–we’d love your thoughts!

We’re talking about e-cookbooks! Autumn weighs the pros and cons of e-cookbooks, including an angsty sonnet about e-readers. It’s as great as it sounds.


Autumn shares a vegan cookbook, Isa Does It, with awesome e-book browsing and interactive features that paper cookbooks just can’t do. Does that change your opinion on ebooks? Do you prefer buying cookbooks in print or digital form? What makes a great e-cookbook feature? What do you dislike most about using an e-cookbook?

We’ll be podcasting *every other* week from here on out, so we’ll see you in two weeks, giving you plenty of time to tweet, comment and call us!}

    Loved the latest podcast, especially the convo on e-cookbooks. There’s a lot of potential, but I think I’m more of a hold-out for hardcopies. The knitting world has ventured into e-books too, but I end up printing out the stuff I want to knit anyway, which I feel sort of defeats the purpose of paperless.
