Are you in Atlanta attending BlogHer Food right now? Well, screw you. Oh, you’re not? Well, grab a glass, join the pity party and drink up! BlogHerFood 2011 Pity Party (otherwise known as #BHF11PP) is the official econference for the non-cool kids. Started last year by The Peche, I missed out on it. But this year, since my dream of going to BHF was financially dashed, I’m so into it. I feel double pitiful because I also missed out on the opportunity to be recorded and featured on The Peche’s during #BHF11PP. Stupid discordant schedules!
Your eyes are NOT fooling you. This drink is the perfect size when you feel extra pitiful. Double shots and quart size jars make the perfect happy hour drink after a hellish week. If you’re worried we’re all going to slit our wrists in conference-missing-unity, you’re a little too late. We’ve already planned a Saturday evening event.* Until then, I’ll be drinking this.
Bourbon Kumquat Splash
- 2 shots bourbon
- 2 shots kumquat vanilla simple syrup
- Citrus seltzer
Note: I used syrup left over from candying kumquat slices with vanilla bean. You could use store bought syrup, thinned marmalade 0r jam, whatevs.
Mix the bourbon and syrup together with lots of ice in your quart jar. Top the jar with seltzer, mix once more and enjoy.
*This is all cheeky fun. Apologies to anyone that takes me seriously or is offended. The only thing you should take seriously in this post is the bourbon.
