Chocolate Cake Shots

This elaborate recipe came to me through Kirsten’s friend Erin a few years ago.

Prepare in a shot glass:

  • 1/2 shot vodka
  • 1/2 shot Frangelico hazelnut liqueur

Slice and have ready:

  • One slice of lemon per shot

Place on a small plate:

  • Two tablespoons of sugar per shot

To take the shot take one slice of lemon, dip both sides of it in the sugar. Now lick the sugar off the lemon (don’t swallow it yet), take the shot, swallow, and bite the lemon slice.

Some people taste the chocolate when they take the shot, others when they bite the lemon, but everyone tastes chocolate cake when they try this. Just make sure you keep the order straight.

Tea from Turds?

A reader commented on my story about Kopi Luwak, a coffee brewed from beans collected from the droppings of a wild animal, that there is a tea in China brewed from the dung of tea-eating insects.

Leslie, the reader, said it was called Poo-poo Pu-erh. I couldn’t find much info on this online, but this article describes an interesting encounter with this rare beverage.

I welcome anyone with more information on this tea to please comment; and for those of you disgusted by the very thought, well… let’s just try not to forget that honey is made from bee puke.
