#100 - Fragoloska

Well, here we are - recipe #100. And just in the nick of time too, only three hours left in 2011. Now we already brought some appetizers, but what New Year's Eve party is complete without some festive beverages?


A Hungry Hundred Original Recipe #100 is a Hungry Hundred Original. It's a New Year's Eve drink, and since New Year's is Johnnys birthday, we knew it had to be a strawberry libation. So we took some inspiration from the Villa Cookbook, made a strawberry sauce, and went from there. And it was pretty good. It's our version of a Caipiroska - a deliciously fruity drink we used to have in Italy.

Now, having completed our New Year's Resolution of 2011, you may be wondering what our plans are for 2012. Well, we're not going to be doing anything crazy like taking 365 pictures or making 100 new recipes, but after all the fun we've had with this project, Emily will be starting something new and exciting. She's starting a new baking business called BB Sweets. She'll be making cute desserts for birthday parties, bridal showers, weddings, or any other exciting event and she'll be making everything from cupcakes to cake pops to plated desserts. Check out her site on Facebook and become a fan!

  1. That sounds awesome. For New Year's Eve I'd fill half a champagne flute with that, then top it with prosecco. You could also use a little Campari or Cynar to balance the sweet with some bitter, or substitute a mild gin like Plymouth for the vodka for a slightly herbal quality. In that case I might leave out the OJ. Cheers!
