Blueberry Drinking Vinegar

This bright and sweet drinking vinegar concentrate makes a quick DIY stand-in for store-bought drinking vinegars, like HongCho, for simple blueberry vinegar sodas or in cocktails like The Missionary, by Jeret Peña of the Brooklynite in San Antonio. See the Texas Issue (March/April 2013) for more on Texas’ dynamic cocktail culture.

2 oz. blueberry juice (If you use one of the common blueberry/apple juice mixes, adjust the sugar to taste)
2 oz. apple cider vinegar
2 oz. rice vinegar
1 ¼ oz. fresh lemon juice
½ cup granulated sugar
2 oz. water

 

Combine ingredients in a shaker and shake well to combine. Double-strain into a glass jar with a lid. Chill before serving. Will keep well for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.

 

For a simple blueberry soda: combine 1 part chilled blueberry drinking vinegar to 3 parts chilled club soda or sparkling water.

Malted Cocoa Mix

Could this be the ultimate cocoa mix? We think so. Adapted from an Alton Brown recipe, just add water and stir for a superbly creamy and oh-so dreamy mug of wintry hot chocolate.

 

2 cups powdered sugar

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 1/2 cups malted milk powder

1 tsp. coarse salt

2 tsp. cornstarch

1/4 tsp. cayenne

Pinch ground cinnamon

Pinch ground nutmeg

Tools: whisk

 

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 months. To make hot cocoa, combine 1/4 cup (or more, to taste) with 8 oz. of boiling water and whisk to combine (or place in an electric chocolate pot and use as directed). Top with homemade marshmallows for a totally decadent treat.
