How you feelin’? Too much celebrating? Us too. Here are four things we’re reaching for, just to get through the day…
All The Caffeine: Brooklyn Roasting Company Iris Espresso
Iris espresso is a sweet, spicy, extremely well-balanced blend of three distinctive beans – Peru, Sumatra and Ethiopian Sidamo – roasted together in small batches. Soft and creamy, with notes of maple sugar, plum, cocoa and spice, you won’t want to reserve this only for espresso. It's a great blend for an AeroPress, but if that’s too difficult today, drip will do.
Instant Breakfast: Megpies Blueberry Popped Tarts
Megpies are totally homemade, and you immediately taste the difference. We swoon over their buttery, flaky crust and to-die-for fillings. Filled with a bright blueberry jam, with its beguiling blend of blueberries and a splash of lemon juice, this treat is like blueberry pie sized down into a tart. And it all somehow still isn't too heavy to serve as an on-the-go breakfast. And by “on-the-go” we mean from the bed to the couch.
Salty Crunchy Fix: Lillie’s Q Salt & Pepper Kettle Chips
The brilliant pit masters of Lillie's Q in Chicago have naturally turned their attention to potato chips. Because what rounds out a plate better than a pile of light, crunchy, flavorful chips? (Ha! Like we’re eating anything off a plate today.) Simply seasoned with black pepper and sea salt, these go well with just about anything you throw at them, like the pizza, Thai, Chinese, Ethiopian, Indian, Japanese and Mexican food that’s already on the way.
Hair Of The Dog (Bite Back!): McClure’s Spicy Bloody Mary Mix + Square One Organic Vodka
We were so excited to discover a 100% organic vodka – it’s silky and full-bodied, with a smooth, clean flavor. It tastes good straight out of the bottle (cue flashbacks to last night) but is even better when mixed with a briny, slightly-spicy, tomato-ey Bloody mix. It’s the cure. Literally – tomatoes are said to help with hangovers! You’re welcome.
Ding-dong. Is that Seamless?
