Happy (or not so happy) Monday! Today I bring you a post featuring the popular funny-man Jimmy Fallon, whom can always bring a smile to one's face on Mondays. We love Jimmy's creativity and his never-ending support and love of Boston. Most recently, Jimmy featured Boston chef, Michael Schlow. Chef Schlow took Boston's most recent crisis, the immense amount of snow, and turned it into an awesome segment on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Chef Michael Schlow owns and operates seven restaurants around the nation (five in New England), but he’s first and foremost a Boston guy. So when Jimmy Fallon invited him on The Tonight Show, he brought a little bit of Boston attitude — and a whole lot of Boston snow — for some ice-cold cocktails. And it makes us so happy to watch.
Schlow and his brother-in-law decided to whip up some alcoholic snow drinks. They came up with snowy negronis, using equal parts campari, sweet vermouth, and gin, all poured over some delicious (and hopefully purified) Boston snow that Schlow gathered in a cooler from where else but Boston Common.
The segment got even better when they got to the dessert round. Schlow brought the alcohol back out, pouring an espresso and averna mix over a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Tonight Dough, the second flavor the New England ice cream makers have named after Fallon. Seriously, why didn't I think of that? There's nothing better than ice cream and alcohol! Jimmy and Chef Schlow sure know how to devour the details. Check out the segment now and brighten up your Monday!
