sounds good. I think I might make a Cointreau cake.

I made a Grand Marnier cake the other day. I've made a lot of cakes lately; it was my least favorite.

got that grand marnier shit delightful concoction today. The label's got this gothic lettering and it reminded me of the Peter Luger's Steak Sauce label so I bought a bottle of that too, and a sirloin steak.

Lately I've been enjoying a dollop of Grand Marnier in my Jack Daniels. I'm sure this is probably sacrilegious.

More on topic:  Later today I plan to sample a weird concoction an acquaintance made of Young's Old Sam rum in which some kind of unknown (to me) fruit has been steeping for several months.

I have no memory of writing this or trying the alcohol in question. The weird specificity really troubles me: how could I forget it?

Probably the concoction destroyed my memory, and I'm lucky I didn't die like those Nigerians.

Orgeat

Ingredients

    2 cups raw almonds, sliced or chopped
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1 1/4 cup water
    1 teaspoon orange flower water or rose water
    1 ounce vodka

Procedures

   Toast almonds at 400°F for 4 minutes, shaking after 2 minutes.

   Cool almonds and then pulverize them with a blender or food processor.

  In a saucepan, cook the sugar and water on medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture starts to boil, about 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

  Add pulverized almonds and simmer on low heat, stirring frequently. When mixture is about to boil, remove from heat and cover. Let it sit for a minimum of 3 hours and no more than 12 hours.

  Strain steeped mixture through three layers of cheesecloth into a bowl, squeezing the cloth as you go.

  Add orange flower water and vodka, then stir. Funnel into glass jar or bottle.

Store for up to one month in the refrigerator.

The Pineapple Hop

Ingredients

    For the Pineapple Shrub

    1 medium fresh pineapple, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
    1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
   
    For the Cocktails

    5 ounces white rum
    5 ounces Pineapple Shrub
    1 1/4 ounces orgeat, such as Small Hand Foods
    20 ounces India Pale Ale, such as Stone IPA

Procedures

    For the Pineapple Shrub

Place the pineapple cubes in a clean, sterilized wide-mouth container. Cover with sugar and lightly crush the pineapples using a potato masher or muddler. Cover and refrigerate 10 hours. Strain fruit (discard or save for another use) and add apple cider vinegar to the liquid. Seal with lid and refrigerate for two weeks, shaking the mixture every other day. After two weeks, strain into a clean airtight container—you'll have about 3 cups—and refrigerate. Strained shrub keeps up to 6 months.

    For the Cocktails

    In a pitcher, mix together white rum, Pineapple Shrub, and orgeat. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving, or mix and refrigerate up to 24 hours in advance. When ready to serve, add beer to the pitcher and stir gently. Serve cocktails in ice-filled highball glasses.

Fripperies are what made me quit listening to King Crimson!
