A Poor Man's Treat: Peach Whiskey Chili

As the spate of misty, near-zero days hint the arrival of spring, there’s a kind of moist penetrating cold that tends to smite our senses. It’s on these days that a steaming bowl of humble Chili proves to be a welcome respite. The bowl o’red – long estranged from the list of elite grubs, is more of a regular braised dish, which is easy, filling and cheap at the same time. Perhaps, this explains the popularity that it reaped from starting as a ten-cent meal to evolving as an official state food of Texas! There’s no denying- no matter how you make it, Chili is always delicious. However, if you wish to personalize it with some offbeat ingredients, then nothing serves better than a sneaky dose of whiskey and peach. A subtle hint of sweetness from the fresh peaches along with the spicy kick of whiskey, gives a whole new meaning to this dish.

Break the Rules with the Scofflaw

With a name as literal as that to boot, one can only imagine the ‘auspicious’ circumstances under which this cheeky cocktail recipe was born. Back in the 19th century, the moralists had a temporary victory over ‘societal evils’ when a ban was imposed on the production, import, and sale of alcohol. Now, every law has its loopholes and those that favoured a drink were only too happy to give two hoots to the law. A drink born with such elan is, no wonder, a total winner at the bar. Fun fact, even though the Prohibition affected the United States, it was the revolutionary Parisians who came up with a drink to scoff at the law, and hence: The Scofflaw. Traditionally made with bourbon, here’s a fresh new take on the cocktail with Irish whiskey filling in the shoes of bourbon.
