1-¼ ounce, weight Caramel Flavored Hot Chocolate Mix (or Plain)
½ cups Coconut Milk
¼ ounces, weight Knox Gelatin (or One Envelope)
¼ cups White Sugar
2 drops Yellow Food Coloring
½ cups Butterscotch Schnapps
Cut in half and hollow out the apples cutting them from the stem down. I used a melon baller to hollow the apples and it worked well. After hollowing them squeeze some lemon juice on top of each to reduce browning.
Mix your 1/2 cup water with 1 envelope or 35 grams of hot chocolate mix in a medium sized sauce pan (no heat yet). Whisk it to make sure all the chocolate is combined. Add the 1/2 cup of coconut milk, whisk again.
Sprinkle your gelatin on top and let it sit for 1 minute. Now turn on low/medium heat and mix the gelatin until all is combined.
Still on low/medium heat add 1/4 cup sugar and simmer slightly until sugar is combined. Add your food coloring until you get the caramel color desired. I used two drops. Remove from the heat and let mixture cool to warm. Pour in your 1/2 cup of butterscotch Schnapps.
With your apples arranged so they fit tightly and securely on a cookie sheet, pour your caramel Jello mixture into your apples. Refrigerate overnight.
Cut the apple halves into quarters and then cut those quarters in half again. Serve immediately. (The lemon juice can only prevent the browning for so long).

This video highlights the night of October 26th, 2011. This is the night that Pour Your Poison had its first ever iron chef style mixology competition. The competitors had no idea until the competition that they had to use apples in their drink. Each competitor was allowed to bring whatever utensils they could think of to make the drink of their choice. This party and competition turned out to be a huge success for everyone involved. Our Congratulations to the following people: 3rd Place Joel Harris and JC Cunningham from Sublime Bar and Lounge 2nd Place Joe Houghtaling and Kenny Siebert from Blackbird Bar 1st Place Dustin Drankiewicz and Nic the Bartender from The Hamilton

In this free mixology video Clint will teach you how to make a Perfect Manhattan. This is an awesome whiskey based cocktail that is sure to knock your socks off! This is a strong drink for sure but what classifies this drink as “perfect” is the fact that it uses both sweet and dry vermouth. This makes the drink finish a little smoother than a traditional Manhattan. The sweet vermouth will mask a bit of the whiskey taste which doesn’t make it any less powerful, just easier to put down!
The recipe for a Perfect Manhattan:
Fill a pint with a ice and add to it
1/2 oz dry vermouth
1/2 oz sweet vermouth
2 1/2 oz whiskey
1 dash angostura bitters
Stir for 20-30 seconds
Serve up in a martini glass
Garnish with a maraschino cherry and enjoy!
