My friend and collaborator Capree sent me this recipe for whiskey and sriracha-flavored homemade candies, with the comment, "some sorta ManMade somethin'." I was seriously intrigued, and followed up with "even though they're heart-shaped?"...mostly just to see what she'd say. I expected some kinda Valentine's Day comment, but she came back with:
After deciding that hot cinnamon extract would be the perfect flavor, I discovered after looking at two separate stores that this ingredient either doesn't exist or is only available online. The only other extracts I had at home were almond and vanilla, so I unscrewed each tiny bottle in one hand with the sriracha bottle in the other hand. After a deep inhale, it was clear that both extracts were completely wrong for this. I then looked through my refrigerator and cabinets, which offered no other options, then strolled into our dining room and saw it ... whisky! I placed both the sriracha and whisky bottles under my nose and inhaled, then smiled. This was it.
