I'm currently intrigued by the thought of making these Coffee Chicory Macarons spotted on the rocking food site tartelette.Wouldn't these make rad holiday treats? I certainly wouldn't object to finding a batch in my stocking.

Our pal LD tried one and I must say two thumbs up! It's light, unexpectedly fizzy and pretty darn tasty.
Check out the recipe for making your own below.
Brother Jimmy's Bloody Beer (recipe via ny barfly)
Build in a Pint Glass –
Handful of Ice
½ Glass of Budweiser (or your beer of choice)
¼ Glass of tomato juice
Juice from half a lime
*Worth noting? This recipe leaves out that the pint glass is rimmed with a salt/BBQ dry rub combo which makes the cocktail super tasty.
Cheers to sodium overload!
