I start my "new" job Monday, just in time to work Monday and Tuesday and be off for the rest of the week. Holy hell closing out three programs is a ton of work. Couple that with the spike it's a rough time out there. Managed a 10 hour day yesterday and should have stayed longer but I need to be able to function for another week still. And cases here are up like 60% week over week so yeah, busy is an understatement. Just in time for everyone to go to their families for the holidays. And the best part is our PCR positivity rate has shot past 5 and is rapidly approaching 10. We're fucked.

Have an unlisted music video that I think is being released on Friday:

Strawberry jalepeño syrup:

1 lb strawberries sliced thin

Throw those in a bowl and macerate with 1 lb superfine sugar for 24 hours

After 24 hours take 6 jalapeños slice them thinly and remove most of the seeds and mix those in. More seeds you leave in, more heat the syrup will have.

Mix in 1 cup of water to that mix and let it sit for another 24 hours

Strain it and you're all set.

Cocktail recipe:

2 oz tequila or mezcal

2 oz strawberry jalepeño syrup

Juice of half a lime

Serve in chilled glass with slice of lime for garnish

The best milkshake I've ever had was pickled jalapeno strawberry. I've tried to recreate it at home but it never worked.

I worked at a movie theatre 12+ years ago and I had a regular customer who I would make strawberry jalapeno milkshakes for. Vanilla shake base, sliced strawberries a little strawberry juice and probably an ounce of jalapeno juice, from our big bulk cans of sliced jalapenos. Then I'd throw a couple slices on top for him. Made a big 24oz shake. He swore by it, but I'd only make it for him if it was a slow evening because I had to clean the mixer after each time. I never tried it.

One of my colleagues told me it was awesome on her vanilla ice cream. If you manage to get it right please to share!
