The holidays are national, so let’s enjoy the spices of life and lavishly live food out loud. Look out holidays you are about to get spiced up! Are you ready to Spice Up the Holidays?
Cocktails & Glass Rimming
In our house, Happy Hour runs all season long, and sometimes a lot during different holi-DAYS. Cocktail rimming is a nice change to the basic old hand-poured cocktail without sass or glitz. The trending Cocktail Rimming salts make a nice drink, fabulous as Cocktail Salts come in vibrant colors to make for festive looking glasses. Spices.com offers Cocktail Sea Salts to rim those holiday drinks with color for Margaritas, Bloody Mary, Salty Dogs and more. Rimming a glass is as easy as: put cocktail sea salts into a bowl as big as the rim of the glass, b) dip the rim of the glass into a liquid or run a lemon or lime around the rim and c) coat with salt by rotating the glass. That’s it!
Caramelize The Bacon
What about breakfast during the holiday with special candied bacon? Grab your bacon, and The Spice Lab Bacon Rub and place on each strip of bacon. Place bacon on a foil-lined tray. Let the bacon bake and you will have caramelized bacon. Now imagine rubbing this on the holiday ham for a truly divine taste. There are 4 flavors of Candied Bacon Rubs from the Spice Labs and each one offers a different flavor. Each pairing will provide both Sweet and Heat, making a divine breakfast treat or if used on ham an nice flavor on the outside that will penetrate the ham as well.
Heat Up The Appetizers
Are you having a nice appetizer night? Perhaps you are cooking some beef, pork or chicken pieces? Sriracha Seal Salt from The Spice Labs offers a great spicy Tahi chili flavor and is perfect to change a basic meat to an amazing meat. Think kabobs or stir fry. The salt can be used as a finishing, table or cooking salt and it does offer a little heat!
Give The Gift Of The Spice Lab
The Spice Lab has amazing gourmet collections and you might even see mine on my counter in all of my YouTube cooking videos series. I love the flavors that a simple salt emits and transitions to food. A basic food can be made into an amazing food with ‘just a pinch’ of gourmet sea salts. If you have someone on your holiday gift list that loves to cook, you may love the Pyrex test tube gourmet salt gifts that have a natural cork stopper and present so well.
Get the holidays spiced up just right, rim the glass, caramelize the bacon, heat up the appetizer and give the perfect gift as you lavishly live food out loud enjoying the many different flavors of The Spice Lab.
