The Cacao Manhattan

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset
This cocktail requires brewed cacao, about which I will post next week. I’m trying to give you a reason to keep coming back to this site and get my site traffic up so.

Haha jk. But seriously, brewed cacao recipe coming soon, and it is a WINNER. Imagine sophisticated Yoohoo + whiskeyyy. I’ve never actually had Yoohoo, keeping it real.

Oddly, this drink tasted good, but it smelled SO GOOD. I used a lemon peel because I had to, but go for an orange peel when you make this.


The Cacao Manhattan

Adapted from Jenni Avins

2 parts cold-brew cacao (recipe coming soon!)
2 parts Old Overholt rye whiskey
1 part sweet vermouth
1 dash angostura bitters

Combine the cacao, whiskey and vermouth in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a rocks glass. Add a dash of bitters and garnish with an orange twist.

What even is a pluot?

I don’t know what it is or how to pronounce it without sounding like a fool, but this is a pluot coconut crumble. Happy Summer Stone Fruit.

PSA: Isle Bun in Mpls


Seriously, if you haven’t yet gotten to Isle Bun in Uptown, just please go there immediately for their larger than life cinnamon rolls with extra frosting and this beautiful fruited coffee cake. It is all anyone would ever need ever for breakfast.


The plate that every 90s mother somehow has, a missed opportunity for BuzzFeed


You know those BuzzFeed lists of things every 90s kid remembers, or whatever? There should be one for 90s moms, and this plate should be on it. I spied one for sale in a local Biblelot recently, and considered picking it up. Imagine how special I would feel if I ate off it every day. It would be like my mom telling me I’m special all the time.
