We used to make this for a very large group during Christmas Holiday for our bowling league. So we did make many adjustments to the amounts that were used. This is the basic recipe. This is really good as is but for the adults in the group it is very good over ice with vodka.
I saw this on Quick Fix Meals with Robin Miller and thought they looked really good and really easy. Of course you could use any preserves, jams, etc. of your choice. What an easy go-to recipe for family, company or to carry with you to a party. I can also see this going "savory".
I have been making this cocktail for years but be careful this will hit you when you least expect it. I am using oz. measurements but it is actually equal parts depending on whether you are serving over ice or as a shooter. This tastes just like the old Bit-O-Honey candy bar
When Chef Dean Fearing was Executive Chef at the Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas he showed this recipe on a local television show. This sauce can be used as a BBQ mop sauce but the one he showed that I used was pan searing Beef Filets in this sauce just until desired doneness. I did make a couple of adjustments. The original recipes called for 1 cup malt vinegar which you will see I tweaked. Also, instead of the thyme I used parsley and added grated garlic to taste. This is truly wonderful but you must use Shiner Bock beer. I thought I lost this recipe and it is no longer posted. Just found it and putting it here for safe keeping.
This is a condiment I got from the Daisy Martinez cooking show. It took a while to get it because her web site was closed down for a while but I keep this in the refrigerator to put on various food. Then again I love garlic. (I don't know why but I thought of Kittencal when I posted this)
When I don't have a lot of time, or energy, I can always throw this together for my family. I have also made this for friends that are sick. Nothing to it but it is one of those comfort foods for me. You can always substitute any veggie but this is how my family likes it. I usually serve this with crusty bread and a salad. As always this type of soup is always better the next day.
