Did the a la mode part of the title make you think I’m crazy? It’s not what you think, I promise! I’m not taking shots of ice cream, I’m taking shots of Apple Pie Piehole Whiskey, hazelnut liqueur, and heavy cream. That is what makes up the Apple Pie a la Mode shots – there is no ice cream involved but the flavor is – woohoo – awesome.
I told you about Piehole Whiskey (they sent us cool stuff for editorial consideration) a couple Thursdays ago when I shared the Cherry Pie Cola drinks we were
downing testing. This week we are experimenting with the Apple Pie Piehole Whiskey and what’s the first thing you think of when you hear apple pie? Well, for me it’s America. You know, you’ll hear Bratwurst and think of Germany, Soda Bread – Ireland, Pizza – New York (or Chicago… if you’re weird.) Apple Pie makes me think of America – George Washington – and vanilla ice cream.
I don’t think I have ever eaten apple pie without vanilla ice cream. It’s like religion for me. It didn’t take me long – I’m talking seconds – to decide I wanted to make an apple pie a la mode shot. Even in the dead of winter I love it!
Here’s how I did it.
Fill the bottom of a tall shot glass 1/3 the way up with [cold] heavy cream.
Add a splash of hazelnut liqueur on top of that.
Fill the shot glass the rest of the way with Apple Pie Piehole Whiskey.
Drink straight down!!
I swear it’s the closest drinkable thing to apple pie a la mode. I had friends lining up for the apple pie a la mode shots and that’s what makes it this weeks Thirsty Thursday winner! Well, until next week (when we’re creating with PIEHOLE Pecan Pie Whiskey… oh my goodies y’all!
