Oh dear! If this is anywhere near as good as the popcorn bread, we're all in trouble!

Adding to this thread another facet...

The Popcorn Martini!
[Image: 014.JPG]

Carmel Popcorn Martini:
Popcorn syrup:
4 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon brown rice syrup
approx 10 cups popped popcorn

Combine first four ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil. Add the popcorn (sans extra kernels). Boil for a few minutes until the popcorn is good a mushy. Let it cool down for a minute, then put everything in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Then use a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to squeeze all the liquid from the popcorn kernels. Refrigerate until ready to use. I find it tastes better after a couple of days in the fridge.

Martini:
4 oz popcorn syrup
2 oz Butter Ripple Schnapps
2 oz soy milk
ice

Combine all ingredients in martini shaker and shake. Pour into a sugar rimmed martini glass and enjoy. I used some homemade carmel popcorn as a garnish for the photo.

Notes: I like girlie martinis - meaning I like drinking and ordering them - but I don't want them to taste too strongly of alcohol. Hence, I removed the vodka from the original recipe. This makes the drink ridiculously sweet but oh - so - tasty! It is also vital to make the popcorn syrup a few days before the drinking commences.

Labs, that sounds really tasty. My favorite jelly belly is buttered popcorn, so I can relate to the taste. Be sure to let us know when you try this. Copied and saved!

You know, darlin' that is just evil! Now just wondering if almond milk would work. No soy here. Geeze that looks so good!

You know, I am a purist myself and every time my neighbor asks,"What kind of martini?" I reply, "Booze and Ice." She always forgets that I don't want a bunch of fruit or cream or something on the rim...

Unbelievable: Was thinking about trying this ice cream, but when I was shopping, yesterday, not one of the three stores I checked had ANY popcorn in stock (except for snack bags of flavoured, already-popped popcorn).
