Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Warmer weather is here and summer is just around the corner which means it is time to fire up the grill. Going to the grocery stores these days can be a little stressful, so we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite restaurants around the city who are offering Grill-at-Home meal kits. Head to Drizly to order some of the beverages that we suggest pairing with the meals!
With Memorial Day approaching we’re sure you’re trying to fill up your beer fridge before the weekend. There’s no better way of doing than heading to our local breweries! Take a look below for updates from Alter, Burnt City, Goose Island and Moody Tongue!
With Mother’s Day coming up you may be wondering how you can still keep your traditions alive. These traditions may include getting Mother’s Day brunch, going out to dinner, or just having some drinks, and there are still plenty of great options available for takeout and delivery. We wanted to highlight some of these options for you as well as offer some great beverage pairing options. Can’t find the pairing option at the restaurant? Look for it on Drizly!
Happy Pi Day!!! To celebrate we made a KBS French Silk Pie, and now that KBS is available year-round, so can you! Here’s the recipe, enjoy!
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (or chopped bitter chocolate)
24 large marshmallows
Pinch of salt
2/3 cup KBS
1/3 cup heavy cream or evaporated or condensed skim milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ready-made butter-cookie-crumb or graham-cracker pie crust
Place chocolate chips, marshmallows, and salt in a medium bowl.
In two separate saucepans, heat Stout and heavy cream until very hot but not boiling. (Don’t heat them together in one container, or the cream will curdle.)
Pour the Stout and cream over the chocolate and marshmallows and let sit for 5 minutes. Gently whisk together to thoroughly blend. Add the vanilla and bourbon (if using), continuing to whisk until very smooth.
Pour the mixture into the crust and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours or until firm.
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons premium bourbon
In a medium bowl, whip cream until soft mounds form. Gradually add sugar, whipping until cream forms stiff peaks. Gently fold in bourbon. Chill until ready to serve.
And Finally the most important step. DIG IN!!!
It’s the start of a new year and a new decade which means many of you are beginning your New Years resolutions to start the year off healthy. Chances are those extra helpings of turkey at Thanksgiving and that full plate of cookies you ate at Christmas are catching up to you, no judgement here. Luckily being healthy doesn’t mean entirely cutting out the beverages you love to drink. Whether you are sitting down to dinner, going out with friends or having a night in, these beverages fit any and all occasions.
The days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder and the holiday season is here. This is a season filled with office holiday parties, family get togethers, Christmas themed bars or cold nights in binging Netflix. But, this is also the season of some of our favorite styles of beer and we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites.
