Vodka "Pills"?
October 30, 2007 3:57 PM   Subscribe

Vodka "pills" or candy, are NOT for little trick-or-treaters.

But I imagine these might make it to a party or two.

No vodka pills for the neighborhood kids, huh? Dang.

Ok, tequila pills it is.

Kind of fun looking, if fiddly and laborious. Portable. But sugar + alcohol = massive hangover, so I'll pass.

Frozen double vodka. Neat. No ice. Sidecar of water.

Actually, this gives me a sudden craving for cupcakes.
Did anybody try those recipes? I threw a bunch more in at the end, too.

It would sound fun if it weren't so complicated.
I'm hugely intimidated by recipes that involve thermometers.
Maybe if I had a drink...

Something 'bout those little pills
Unreal, the thrills, they yield, until
They kill, a million braincells

This candy would take the Mentos commercials to a new level.

Now why don't you just take it easy, loquacious, and please make me a drink of grain alcohol and rainwater, and help yourself to whatever you'd like.

I think his name is Chad Galiano, chef de cuisine at Neomi's Grill in Trump International Sonesta Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla.

Now what kind of crazy yuppie talk is that? Just hand me the moonshine and dunk my head in the rainbarrel later!

The hell you say.

(alternate answer)

But how will I be able to beat them up and take their candy when they're down the block?

Candymaking is like driving. A little tricky, takes some practice, sometimes improved by an experienced guide, but not a big esoteric secret or only for the gifted. As in a car, the instrumentation is just there to tell you how you're approaching your goal.

Candymaking is also like driving in that it's much safer if you're sober, wakeful, and undistracted. Candy syrups run well over the boiling point; they have a high heat capacity; they flow easily when hot, stick to things, and harden as they cool; and they demand that you move quickly with heavy pans full of them sometimes. Which is to say, they bear the potential for nasty, disfiguring burns. Once or twice in each recipe you will need to devote your full capacities to the one task at hand. This is not very different from driving, either.

Apart from those crucial moments, you generally need to have your mind active (watching for crystallization, washing down the sides of the pan) to make things turn out well. The quality of the outcome can be dramatically improved by a little more attention. This is still not very different from driving.

So my heartfelt advice to you is to try whatever candy recipe strikes your fancy. But save the drink for later.

I'm guessing that was a Dr. Strangelove reference, loquacious, although I might be mistaken.
