Homemade Gin (Infusion)

Let's get one thing straight: This ain't your grandma's bathtub gin. This Homemade Gin is subtle and fragrant and herbal with notes of Bay, rosemary, and cardamom. And? It's easy to make at home in just about 24 hours.

Guinness Ice Cream

It's summer. Let's make ice cream! This ice cream is a favorite at our house. It's sweet, rich, and packed with glorious stout flavor. (Drop a few scoops next to a fat wedge of dark chocolate cake for an insanely decadent dessert.)

Homemade Lemon Curd

Spicy Holiday Compound Butter

This is one of those things that I make en masse and keep in the fridge for the holiday season. It's great on everything from French toast to roasted chicken. Use it to garnish a thick, char-grilled steak. Crown a steaming bowl of creamy mashed potatoes with a few slices and some minced chives.

Drunken Coffee Jello Squares

OK, kids: This is coffee. In solid form. It's been sweetened with condensed milk and booze-ified with a healthy dose of Kahlua—then rubberized into a blissful, cocktail-hour finger food thanks to the magic of gelatin. Now, you have to like Jello, or Jello-like food, for this to work. If you do, you're in for a treat.

Homemade Butter

Making butter at home is surprisingly easy to do. All you need is fresh heavy cream—and maybe a little salt, if you want salted butter. That's it. (No, really: That's it.)

Drunken Cranberry Orange Compound Butter

I know: When will I stop raving about compound butter? Never, probably. (But I'll bet you could guess that.) The stuff is just too easy to make—and too darned good. What is compound butter? If you've...
