This week we enjoy a Festivus for the rest of us! Aric Mellott, or as you may know him Phatemokid on the interwebs, joins us for a crazy celebration of craft beer, and since it's Aric, we have to make cocktails.
We're drinking a delicious beer from Bison Brewing called Gingerbread Ale, a cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger creation of amazingness. Matt's a girl, Stephen threatens to blow everyone up, and John feels sympathy for Matt's broken foot.
On Master Pairings with Dr. Bill, he is joined by John Holzer, and they drink a great Rye Porter from a brewery in Denmark, the Amager Rye Porter. Bill pairs this with Bacon Toast... yeah. Bacon Toast.
We come back to make cocktails and discuss the wonder root, Ginger! Here is the fabulous recipe for the Gingerbread Flip!
1 part ginger simple syrup
2 parts Sailor Jerry's Spiced Rum
4 parts Bison Gingerbread Ale
1 whole egg
Nutmeg or Cinnamon for garnish.
Make the simple syrup with 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, and 5-10 pieces of finely sliced fresh ginger; boil for 10 minutes, strain and chill. “Dry shake” the egg, the rum, beer and the simple syrup to emulsify the ingredients.
Add in ice, shake vigorously, until chilled, and strain into a glass. Garnish with fresh grated nutmeg.
Matt wants me to suck the head off, John gets splooged on, Stephen suffers through cocktail making hiccups in high speed, and Aric wonders if these bitches be crazy!
