Anyways, the point.
Kevin had a brilliant suggestion of how to serve our pumpkin beer. Oh goodness, it was good. It made it a beer'ssert. Yup, pumpkin beer for dessert.
Yeah, I was having a little bit of fun with photo editing there...
So, we've had a bit of a weird Fall here. First it rained buckets. Then we had these super crazy winds that blew off all the leaves from the tree (and knocked quite a few of them over). This means fewer leaves on the trees to turn a beautiful yellow for fall. So here we are, in a wind damaged, rain soaked, and color diminished state of Fall, and it snows. What??? Snow in September?? Not just a few flakes randomly falling. We're talking ground sticking, grass covering, snow.

Here's how to make an already awesome pumpkin beer an awesome pumpkin beer'ssert!
Sugar & Spice Rimmed Pumpkin Beer
From: Kevin's suggestion
- 1 T light brown sugar
- 1/2 T white sugar
- 1/8'ish t pumpkin pie spice
- orange slice (or orange marmalade)
- pumpkin beer of your choosing
First, rim your glass with either an orange slice, or if you don't happen to have one but have orange marmalade in your fridge and thought "oh that'd be tasty!', with orange marmalade. You could really use anything here to make it sticky. I did really like the orange marmalade though!
Then, roll your glass into your mixture of white and brown sugars, and pumpkin pie spice.
Pour in beer.
|I love that my Grove City College pint glass, home of the [then] dry town, has beer in it. Just makes me giggle. Guess you would have to be a Grover to get the irony of the situation... :op|
Or take pictures of it. :o)
It's quite delicious and really is a dessert (even if I did drink mine while making dinner...) :o)
