With the sudden variety of sweets-flavored vodka now available on liquor store shelves, it is only natural that people are trying to develop cocktail recipes to feature them. I have on good authority that UV Cake flavored Vodka is an excellent friend of Dr Pepper, but what to do with this Smirnoff Marshmallow Vodka that wouldn’t let me not buy it?
This, my denizens, is my contribution to the world of adult beverages. Not terribly alcoholic, but really fucking tasty.
Hot Rocky Road (the more complicated but better version)
In a small saucepan, heat 2 oz whole milk with 2 oz water over medium heat, whisking frequently until simmering. Add 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and remove from heat. Whisk quickly until all chocolate is melted and mixed with the liquid. Add 1 oz Marshmallow vodka and 1/2 oz Amaretto. Serve in your favorite mug, garnished with whipped cream if desired.
Hot Rocky Road (the lazy version that is still good but not nearly AS good)
Prepare 1 packet of plain hot cocoa mix as directed, with the exception of subbing half of the required water for hot milk. Stir in 1 oz Marshmallow vodka and 1/2 oz Amaretto.
I have a love/hate relationship with air fresheners. Candles, oils, and incense can be very pleasant in a living room, bedroom, outside, etc. However, the most common place one finds such things is the worst place: the bathroom.
We live in a culture in which it is apparently inappropriate to have a bathroom that smells as if somebody uses it- to which the acceptable solution is to spray an air freshener after your movement. Apparently it’s a major faux pas for a toilet to temporarily smell of poo, but fine for it to smell like somebody shit on a cake.
When buying Halloween candy, the register printed me a coupon for Weight Watchers breakfast sandwiches. When purchasing a box of wine (Don’t knock the Wine Cube), I received a coupon for aspirin.
Summary: Target’s coupon-printing program is an asshole. Also psychic.
