And now it’s time for a drink.
2 pounds light brown sugar
2 pounds dark brown sugar
4 pounds butter
1⁄4 cup vanilla
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum
makes: enough to last through the primaries, but not the general election
1. Put everything but the rum in a large pot and stir over low heat until firm-ish.
2. Do not eat. (Well, maybe just a taste.) Do not swig rum. (Like we said.) Scrape mixture into tightly lidded containers in fridge.
3. To make each drink, add two tablespoons of mix and 11⁄2 ounces rum to a six-ounce cup or wine glass, and fill to the top with boiling water. Cheers!
