Luxurious, like a warm wool robe.
Just get yourself a good bottle of whiskey
and scroll down.
You can plump dried fruit in almost any liquid, so why not whiskey? The figs balance the heat of the whiskey the same way that vermouth or simple syrup
balances it in a cocktail. These sweet bourbon bombs are wonderful with aged cheeses, salty bleus, and creamy bries.
They also make for a delightful garnish in an Old Fashioned cocktail.
Try infusing figs with other cocktails or liquors.
Let me know what you discover.
Last Saturday was Jacob’s birthday and we were both in desperate need of some time away so I swept him off to Milwaukee. Though we only had one day to spend in the city, I wanted to simulate a full, meditative, leisurely vacation, one that would make us feel as though we had escaped for much longer. In one short 24 hour period, I packed in the perfect itinerary of eats, drinks, and activities. I’d like to think that I nailed it – even my AirBNB host was impressed.
Here’s a short guide highlighting some of my favorite spots in Milwaukee. You can do it all in a day, or spread it out over several. If you have some suggestions, leave them for me in the comments. I’ll check them out on my return trip.
