Medicine Man Recipe


Smoke flavor is an amazing addition to a cocktail, and can be imparted in any number of ways. The Medicine Man, a cocktail sold at San Francisco’s Bourbon & Branch, uses paprika for a gently spiced and smoky rum drink that you’ve got to try to believe.

Ingredients

  • 2 Ounces white rum
  • ¾ Ounce lemon juice
  • ½ Ounce maple syrup
  • ¼ Teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 4 sage leaves, divided

Servings1

Calories Per Serving186

Folate equivalent (total)15µg4%


Recipe Summary

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ tablespoons orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Cream the butter and the sugar together. Add the egg and mix well. Mix in the orange peel and dark corn syrup. Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, ground cloves and salt, mixing until well combined. Chill dough for at least 2 hours, I like to chill overnight.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 inch apart on the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are firm and lightly toasted on the edges.


Ingredients of Jalebi

  • 3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cup hung curd
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 3 cup sugar
  • 5 strand saffron
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered green cardamom
  • 1/2 cup corn flour
  • 1 1/2 pinch baking soda
  • 2 cup sunflower oil
  • 3 cup water
  • 4 drops rose essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon edible food color

How to make Jalebi

Step 1 Prepare the Jalebi batter and let it ferment overnight

To make this easy Jalebi recipe, mix together all-purpose flour, cornflour and baking soda in a bowl. Now, add ghee and food colour to the above mixture. To make a thick batter add hung curd and water. Mix well until it is thick but has a slightly flowing consistency. Keep it aside for 8-10 hours to ferment. This step is important to give that unique "khatta" taste to Jalebi. To make the sugar syrup, heat water in a pan over medium flame. Add sugar and mix until fully dissolved. Simmer the syrup until it attains one string consistency. Add saffron, cardamom powder and rose essence. Stir well.

Step 2 Deep fry the Jalebis

Now, heat oil in a pan over medium flame for deep frying. Fill the jalebi batter in a muslin cloth and pierce a small hole in the cloth. Squeeze the muslin cloth to make concentric circles. Move from inside to outside to make perfect circles. Fry till jalebis are crisp and golden.

Step 3 Soak the Jalebis in sugar syrup and 2-3 minutes and serve warm with Rabri

Soak the jalebis in sugar syrup for 2-3 minutes. Ensure that the sugar syrup is warm and not very hot. Now, remove from the syrup and place it on a tray lined with butter paper or foil. Decorate with silver foil (optional) and serve the jalebis hot, warm or at room temperature with creamy Rabri. Note: To make the jalebi even more delicious, add a little bit of ghee to the batter, this will give your jalebi that perfect aroma. To the crispy Jalebi, don't forget to ferment the batter overnight.


Which Bourbon Brand is Best in an Old Fashioned?

We tried as many bourbons as we could get our hands on that would be widely available. The bourbon you use will probably have the greatest impact on the taste of the drink. Using a local or small batch bourbon would also be a nice twist on this classic drink if you are able to locate one.

We found the best cocktails were made using one of these three bourbons:

We also liked:

These bourbons made acceptable cocktails, but didn’t have the same high-quality outcome as we saw with the other cocktails:

  • Woodford Reserve
  • Basil Hayden’s
  • Four Roses Yellow Label
  • High West American Prairie
  • Bulleit
  • Old Forester
  • Buffalo Trace

Old man Fred's Moonshine Recipe

Take 50# bag of untreated scratch feed. Put into a 55 gallon container, fill with good water. Set in the sun for about 2 weeks, after the foaming add 20# sugar and wait till the bubbling stops.

Drain off the liquid, filter, then put into the still. Refill the 55 gallon container up to 3 times.

Makes great shine! An old man is dead now - but lives on in his recipe.

Comments for Old man Fred's Moonshine Recipe

There is nothing in this moonshine recipe that will convert the corn meal starches to sugars.

You would only be getting a very small amount of ethanol from the sugar.

By setting the barrel in the sun, or anywhere warm for 2 weeks will probably "sour" the corn like a sour dough starter. After 2 weeks of souring, the liquid in the barrel will have collected wild yeast and is ready to convert the sugar. The souring process is very common in a lot of American distilleries like bourbon and Tennessee whiskey.

1) no yeast? how much? when?
2) uncovered/cloth cover?
3) stir occasionally?
4) for the following batches add sugar and yeast?
5) ideal pH?

Recipe Variations

  • You can alter the flavor of this dump cake by changing the fruit and cake mix you use and, in this recipe, the pudding.
  • Instead of yellow or white cake mix, try using chocolate with instant chocolate pudding and canned cherry pie filling for a spin on Black Forest cake. Or try white cake mix with white chocolate pudding mix and canned mandarin oranges (drained and 3 tablespoons syrup reserved) for a Creamsicle flavor.
  • Fresh fruits can be used, but they will need more sugar and probably should sit for a while sprinkled with sugar before assembling the cake to let the juices come out.

I'll Be Drinking This Copycat Starbucks Medicine Ball Recipe All Winter Long

I love a good Starbucks run. Hot or iced, there's always some drink I'm craving, and Starbucks gets it right every time. One of my favorite items to order on a cold winter day is the Medicine Ball, also known on the Starbucks menu as the Honey Citrus Mint Tea. It's a hot, soothing blend of tea, honey, and lemonade that never fails to warm me up. And, as the name would suggest, it's the perfect cup to cozy up with when you're feeling under the weather.

So when I found this copycat Medicine Ball recipe from TikTok user @chambo_mommy, I knew I had to try it. It requires just five ingredients: water, peach tea, citrus mint tea, lemonade, and honey.

In just five minutes, I whipped up a comforting drink worthy of any travel mug. If you're looking to switch up your morning routine or soothe your cold symptoms — and save some money in the process — then this sweet, citrusy tea is just the thing!

This recipe is the real deal, tracing back to Victor “Trader Vic” Bergeron Jr. in the 1930s. It comes to us via Martin Cate, owner of Smuggler’s Cove in San Francisco. (Who based it on the recipe found in Jeff Berry’s book Beachbum Berry’s Sippin’ Safari.) See Cate demonstrate how to make it in our You’re Doing It All Wrong video. And read more about the history of the drink here.

What to buy: Orgeat is an almond-sugar syrup traditionally made from whole blanched almonds. The nut oil gives the syrup (and cocktails made with it) a richness that can’t be duplicated with a cheap syrup made with almond flavoring and sugar. Try to find a high-quality brand, like the one from Small Hand Foods.

Game plan: You’ll need to make our Rich Simple Syrup before you begin.

In restaurants it is served in a tall, footed glass, in neighborhood stores it is ladled into plastic cups and in street stands it is simply poured into plastic bags and provided with straw. It can be taken as an after-meal beverage-dessert, a snack or a drink to accompany another merienda item.

Sago itself is also seen in Tahu, Ginataan and Ginumis while gulaman which is made from seaweed called agar-agar can be eaten as a gelatin dessert with or without fruits.

How to Make Cute Labels for DIY Snow Cone Syrup

I decided to make some cute kid-friendly labels to go on our homemade snow cone syrup bottles. That way kids can easily identify what flavor syrup they’re using on their sno-cones.

This project is part of the Crafty Hangouts series of live crafting videos, sponsored by OnlineLabels.com.

If you think office supplies and parties don’t go hand-in-hand, then you need to check out all the amazing labels available from Online Labels. You’ll find all kinds of shapes, sizes and colors of labels for shipping, printing, packaging, branding and crafting. Even labels for sno-cone syrup bottles!

Our group of crafty bloggers has come up with 20 different ideas for how to use labels at parties. You can find all the tutorials on this YouTube playlist.

Online Labels has a free tool that you can use to design and print your labels. But for my project, I decided to break out some of my rubber stamps and ink.

I used these cigar band-style soap labels in a white glossy finish for my sno-cone bottles.

Other supplies I used to make the snow cone syrup labels:

    (You can find them at Walmart, grocery stores or Amazon) (You could also use Copic markers) or an ink pad (This set is retired, but I found other options here and here)
  • Assorted washi tape (This fruit washi would be adorable on the snow cone syrup bottles!)

How much syrup should I use on a sno-cone?

This particular recipe calls for about 1.5 ounces of syrup per 6 ounce sno-cone. But the amount you use really depends on personal taste and preference.

If you’re like most kids I know, the more syrup the better! And why limit yourself to just one flavor of syrup when you can mix them all together and make a rainbow snow cone?

Can I make sugar-free snow cone syrup

You can make sugar-free sno-cone syrup although it may not be as syrup-y as the version made with sugar.

To make sugar-free snow cone syrup, dissolve 1 cup of Splenda into 1 cup of boiling water, then add the Kool-Aid mix. You can experiment with other no-calorie sweeteners as well.

Can I make a snow cone without a snow cone maker?

While it’s fun to serve up these icy sweet treats from a snow cone machine, you don’t need any special appliances to make a snow cone. You can use a blender or a food processor to crush the ice for snow cones. (I love my Kitchen Aid K400 for making snow cones. It’s amazing for crushing ice, and you can even get that soft Hawaiian shave ice texture with it.)

If you don’t have a blender, food processor or crushed ice setting on your refrigerator, throw some cubes into a zip-top plastic bag. Use a mallet to crush the ice. (Bartenders love these types of bags for making crushed ice.)

What flavor is Tiger’s blood?

Kid’s love Tiger’s blood snow cones. And mine is no exception.

Tiger’s blood is a deep-red snow cone syrup that is a combination of watermelon and strawberry with a bit of tropical coconut.

To make your own Tiger’s blood snow cone syrup, follow the recipe below using 1/2 packet of watermelon-flavored Kool-Aid and 1/2 packet of strawberry-flavored Kool-Aid. Add up to 1 teaspoon of coconut extract.

Does snow cone syrup need to be refrigerated?

Yes, you should refrigerate homemade snow cone syrup so it doesn’t spoil or go bad.

How long does snow cone syrup last in the refrigerator?

This snow cone syrup should remain good kept in the refrigerator for a week to 10 days. If you don’t use it all up then, you can store in the freezer to preserve it longer.

Can you freeze snow cone syrup?

Yes, you can freeze this snow cone syrup if you’re not going to be able to use it all within a week or so. Just stash it in an air tight bottle in the freezer and pull it out when you want to make snow cones.

Because snow cone syrup has a high sugar content, it may not solidify or freeze completely. It should be good in the freezer for at least a month.

Is Homemade Snow-Cone Syrup Gluten Free?

This DIY snow cone syrup should be gluten free. But it’s always a good idea to check the label on the Kool-Aid or powdered drink mix package to confirm there aren’t any ingredients that could cause any issues if you have gluten intolerance or other food sensitivities or allergies.

We went a birthday party over the weekend, and we we gave Jackson’s little friend his own sno-cone maker, some straws and sno-cone cups, plus an assortment of homemade syrups.

We love coming up with creative birthday gifts for kids, and I’d say this definitely qualifies!
