Propose Some Toast
Booze-infused jams to help you hibernate
?Tis the season for toasts. (?No, I?m thankful for YOU.?) But more than just the Champagne variety, we?ve also got our sights and stomachs set on the fresh-out-the-oven kind. Hot biscuits with butter and booze...wait, what? Yes.
Here are some alcohol-infused preserves to serve your overnight guests, give as a hostess gift or simply devour at home on a snowy Sunday.
Mixed with rum Brooklyn?s The Jam Stand mixes up a range of innovative blends like peach with Sriracha, but it?s the banana with rum and lime ($10) that we shall be slathering on our pancakes. Find it at select stores like Dean & DeLuca and ABC Home
Infused with brew The new Inwood Gourmet has been open only three weeks and it?s already sold out of the pumpkin-ale, oatmeal-stout and IPA jellies ($7.50) from Vermont cannery Potlicker. But a new shipment is arriving any moment now to pair with your grilled cheeses. 95 Cooper St. at W. 207th St.
Splashed with a single-malt Speaking of Vermont, Black Bear Sugarworks is also one of our Green Mountain neighbors up north, but it just opened a new brick-and-mortar space in Park Slope. Our pick: the orange-and-whiskey marmalade ($11). The rich spread pairs just as well with baked Brie as it does with vanilla ice cream. 374 Fifth Ave. (between Fifth and Sixth sts.), Brooklyn
