Apple Pie Martini

Apple Pie Martini


Apple Pie Martini 1

For the past couple weeks, Nathan and I have been trying to think of a pie that we want to post on Rampant Cuisine before Thanksgiving. We couldn’t think of one that we really wanted to try and so the pie idea gradually and naturally morphed into a pie drink idea (are you surprised!?). I was skeptical that a cocktail could really taste like an apple pie but this one comes surprisingly close and hits all the flavor notes that an apple pie does. It has the tart crispness of an apple mixed with the warmth of cinnamon and butter…topped off with hints of lemon and vanilla. Trust me, it tasted like a drinkable apple pie! If you’re looking for a special drink to top off the Thanksgiving meal, give this one a try and save yourself the work of making an actual pie!

We’re not those people that get on the pumpkin train in early September.Continue Reading

People sometimes ask me if we ever have total failures in the kitchen and the answer is yes! This post was actually supposed to be a Juicy Lucy burger recipe (a burger cooked with cheese inside) but the burgers fell short of our expectations on so many levels that we had to come up withContinue Reading

Classic Daiquiri

Classic Daiquiri

Daiquiri’s have a bad rap (in my opinion) for a good reason. If you order a daiquiri in a restaurant it will most likely be very sugary, very fruity, or slushy and served from a machine…all traits that an authentic, classic daiquiri doesn’t have. Before we made our own daiquiris I had no idea whatContinue Reading

Homemade Limoncello

Homemade Limoncello

Limoncello is an Italian drink that exemplifies something that I love about Italy…the tradition of lingering over a meal and drawing it out in as many ways as possible while enjoying the company of whoever you’re with. Limoncello is a cordial that I saw on every restaurant menu when I was in Rome…a ‘digestivo’ intendedContinue Reading
