feeling egg-cellent in philly
June 29, 2013
→ I love that I can Google anything related to food and the top hits always include drool-worthy photos and recipes from @HuffFood. Currently, I am fast-forwarding to tomorrow morning, when I will have a kid-free house, and nowhere to race off to. THIS is awesome.
And, since last Sunday, my one-year wedding anniversary, was kid- and exhaustion-filled due to a late-night return from a family road trip, I have my sights set on spoiling the husband with a decadent breakfast and Bloody Marys made with a freshly-procured bottle of The Bay vodka—courtesy of my good friend (on Instagram @mackmerry77) aka Gina Tonic, sales superforce for Philadelphia Distilling, which also makes the familiar blue bottle of Bluecoat Gin you see adorning the shelves at local haunts.
Now hopefully, this won’t get me in trouble, but I am personally donating a bottle of The Bay to the person who can come up with a non-Bloody Mary drink in which to pour said “Bay” vodka. You may leave a comment here, then post your recipe and photo on our Facebook page. We’ll run this through the 4th of July holiday, so you’ve got time to experiment. @mackmerry77 will be judging, and you don’t want to mess with her, because she kicked butt at Thursday’s Philly on the Rocks competition. The Judges’ Choice winning cocktail was Bluecoat Gin with aloe juice, basil and lime, made bubbly with a touch of Sprite—a refreshing summertime libation. Since The Bay seasoned vodka tastes pretty much how you’d expect it to, you can always experiment by mixing real Old Bay into your vodka concoction. Taste-testing is half the fun. Write your recipe down, and take a photo. Post on Instagram with @mackmerry77 and @TWEgroup, or on our Facebook page between now and July 8th. Once we get the word from Miss Gina Tonic, we’ll post a winner.
Now, back to the eggs to go with tomorrow’s Bloody Marys… If you can’t find something you like out of these 40 suggestions, then there’s no pleasing you. I’m still deciding between Slide No. 6, No. 16, No. 24 or No.35 (except with kale). Let us know which recipes turn your taste buds on. —@eatDEWwrite
