In A Nutshell – December 2018

December was a great month with a nice long trip to Denver, a couple year end BBQ road trips, and a lot of time with friends to push me in to 2019. I look forward to what 2019 has in store for me because 2018 was an absolute blast! I hope you continue to join me on my journeys as I eat my way through life but, for now, here’s a look at my favorite posts from December.

Bacchus and Brown – Austin, TX

Have plans for lunch/brunch today? I want to remind you that @bacchus_and_brown is only open on Sundays so if you don't have plans yet, here you go! Check out this delicious chicken slider on a beignet bun! The beautifully fried chicken is coated in an awesome housemade sweet and spicy sauce and garnished with green onion. Seriously, it's great, and you get two to an order. You won't have another chance to get this until next week so don't squander it away! Bacchus and Brown is located in the back of @fullcirclebaratx over on East 12th Street which is a great spot to get this food, have a good drink, play some skee ball, and maybe even watch some sports ball, if you're in to that. Happy Sunday!

Last night I was treated to the most decadent cocktail I've ever had by @mrrusselldavis at @academiaaustin. This is a $100 chocolate martini that @chrisimpsonxp made with all the care you'd expect from a drink with that price tag. It starts with a base of @bouverycv chocolate vodka, followed up by @greygoose la vanille (recently reintroduced in the US after a 15 year hiatus), a chocolate syrup created by Russell through @shakerandspoon, a drop of Bonini Modena balsamic vinegar, topped with edible silver leaf, and shavings of the world's rarest chocolate, Pure Nacional. Luckily my friends @atxcocktails and @corina_travelina were there to share in the experience. Thank you again, Russell, this was an amazing treat!
