Start with Beef Rib Roast and end with Crispin Cider Float

It rhythms! Beef Rib Roast and Crispin Cider Float. TGIF,  this Friday is a very legit Thank God It's Friday. Finally a vacation day with good food, good friends, and a Big Green Egg.

The Big Green Egg, allegedly the best outdoor smoker/grill/cooker/patio-decoration in the 20th century. It's ceramic-Kamado style cooking helps lock in motion of the food, and give it a smoky flavor that your backyard trophy Weber can never compete with. But don't worry, just go to Kitchen Window in Uptown. It's about time to get one and prep your backyard for some award ceremony moment. And don't forget to give me a Holla while you are in Uptown!

Beef rib roast and mushroom cheese dip all in The Egg. You can literally fit your appetizer, your main dish, and your baked dessert all in the egg. As long as you don't forget it, the Egg can really save you insane amount of time!

The result!

And how could a Spring grill out be complete without some hard cider? I always get accused of taking pictures of "finished" food, such as this one, a "finished" bottle of Crispin. But hey, I need time to get my camera out of my big purse, turn it on, adjust the setting, and by the time I zoom in on the food/cider, it's GONE! How can that be my fault? Blame it on the Al-al-al-alcohol~

After some tender and juicy beef rib roast, few bottles of good wine, some crazy conversations, it's finally dessert time. Crazy convo leads to interesting dessert innovation: Crispin Cider Float

Artisanal Reserves: Crispin Honey Crisp
"New Crispin Honey Crisp Artisanal Reserve™ is a small batch, hand crafted, super-premium hard apple cider smoothed with real organic honey for a rich, creamy, full-bodied crisp taste. Smooth over ice." 
Smooth over ice, and even smoother over ice cream. Hint of honey sweetness pair with rich and creamy Haagen-das vanilla ice cream. If produce happy couples, Crispin and Haagen-das should be having  grandkids now. 
Give it a upside down twirl, let the apple wine sediments suspend through the whole bottle and into each glass of fresh and pure enjoyment.

To make life even more unfair than it is for most of our readers, we also got a hold of The Saint.

Artisanal Reserves: Crispin The Saint:
"A small batch, hand-crafted, super-premium hard apple cider, The Saint is smoothed with pure organic maple syrup for a silky, sustained mouth-feel that develops complexity on the palate."
I was so tempted to just drizzle more maple syrup and crumble some cookies over this float to make it the dessert of the year. Crispin may be launched over night in the attic, but tonight, Crispin Cider Float was launched over the dinner table. BAM! just like that.

Look at that foam. I can't wait for summer to come. Well, I think I'll be good when April 15th comes around. That will officially mark the end of my Detox month. I can now finally have some hard cider float, wine, dessert, coffee.... yummmmm. But till then, I'll be the DD and the only sober one listening to all the gibberish coming out of the mouths of our drunk wine heads. It really is a different kind of fun.
