Jalapeno Popper Cups, Daily’s Cocktails, And Girls’ Night In

1 Posted by - October 2, 2013 - Food & Drink, Reviews, Sweepstakes


My two buds Jamie and Kristen came to visit me a couple weekends ago. The three of us used to all be coworkers and now we still hang out because we are the coolest, pretty much.

We went out one night to a fun grown-up prom and we looked hot. We looked even hotter than this because we weren’t standing under horrible lighting for the entire night.

But one night, we decided to stay in and eat junk food and drink, like ya do.

Part one: Drinking. This part was easy because Daily’s sent me some of their Daily’s Cocktails Original Frozen Pouches in about a hojillion different flavors. All you do is stick them in the freezer and then take them out when you’re ready to get your drank on.

The alcohol’s already in there and everything. There is no possible way to screw it up.

Well, I mean, we had some mad cold fingers after squeezing the bags to break up the frozen slush and then getting it into the glasses, but we found that problem was easily remedied by running the bag under hot water instead of using your fingers. Boom.

Then you can either drink it like a frozen cocktail or use a spoon like a slushie, which we did because we are classy broads. (Ignore the fact that the spoon says “hot cocoa” on it. We are rebels without a cause.)

But a woman cannot live on frozen cocktails alone, delicious though they may be.

Jalapeno poppers to the rescue!

These seem like they’d be pretty easy too, and I tried– I really did. But the first step was to put the biscuits in an ungreased muffin tin and you know how things tend to go with my muffin tins, so I greased it and forgot about the consequences.

Then you mix up all the other ingredients, and you make a mental note to tell your girlfriends not to mention the mayonnaise part if your husband asks. (Oops.)

Then, if you are me, you put them in the oven, take a picture, and moments later realize that you missed the most important ingredient: the jalapenos. Siiigh.

jalapeno poppers without jalapenos

So you take those biscuits back out of the oven and put jalapenos on them, because that’s how they should be. And then you bake them and they are delicious, if somewhat flatter than the ones in the picture, which is probably somehow because you greased your muffin tins, you idiot.

But it’s all good, because they were delicious (even if flat) and the cocktails were delicious, and we had girl talk and my dog only tried to eat my guests a couple of times, which is really pretty good, considering her history.

    I drank those all summer – poked a hole in the bag and stuck a straw in, like a grownup Capri Sun. Oh, the shame.

    They were flat because you took them out of the oven after they had started to warm and rise…easy to fix next time 😉

    Last summer-ish my sister and I both had “one of those days” at work, and decided that we deserved to let loose a little, and we absolutely could not wait for the weekend. So we grabbed several Daily’s from the freezer and marched our butts down to the basement for some kickass karaoke. Upon first sip of our Daily’s slush, we decided that there was not nearly enough alcohol in them, so we marched our butts back upstairs to remedy the situation by adding lots and lots of wine to the already boozy drinks. Karaoke is always better with alcohol, right?

    Needless to say, fun was then had by all.

    Probably went a little flat from taking them out of the oven early. I don’t think the greasing is to blame :) Lube always solves the problem

    Lol! My husband hates mayo too! When ever he sees me with it he gags, says “That’s so f***ing gross!” and has to leave the kitchen. If he stays in the kitchen, I like to lick it off of the spoon/knife just to gross him out! I think it’s hilarious! Is that bad? :)

    I hate mayo, also. Who mixed eggs and vinegar together and thought “this will be an awesome condiment?!”

    Bahama Mama Daily’s, on the other hand, are made of win. Especially with extra rum.

    I don’t see anything wrong with them being a little flat. Sometimes the flat ones have more fun. Or maybe I’m wrong and thinking of something else…either way taste is all that matters!

  • Rebecca October 3, 2013 - 12:44 am Reply

    I think they are flat because of the pan size vs the biscuit size. And I like any cocktail involving rum. :-)

    I want to taste the Blue Hawaiian. I’ve had their strawberry and pina colada – both delish. I think it was still smarter to grease your pans than not – cuz it’s you. And your muffin tins hate you.

  • Bethimoose October 3, 2013 - 2:07 pm Reply

    I enjoy that one of the most frequent comments is how the booze included drink pouches would be awesome with more booze.
    I’m also a sucker for any fruity girlie drink so bring on ALL the flavors. Maybe not all at once though, if you want me to remember the experience.

    I love those, especially in the summer! I’m impatient, so I only freeze mine halfway. Not even slushy, just slightly below room temperature cold. I guess I COULD buy a bunch and put them in the freezer but, you know, planning.

    Try layering the Daily’s blue hawaiian with Daily’s pina colata…it’s a pain in the butt, but they’ll think you’re Martha Stewart!

  • Brenna Terranova October 4, 2013 - 4:52 pm Reply

    I’d go with the Peach Daiquiri flavor. Yummmmmmmmmmmooooo. I’m convinced that they need to make whisky gingers of these. I’d buy stock.

  • Brenna Terranova October 4, 2013 - 4:55 pm Reply

    I actually do think that it’s because you greased the muffin tins that they stayed flat. The biscuit was thinking about creeping up there and peeking out over the top, and then it’s all like “FUCK! BUTTER!? HOW DO WE GET PAST THIS, MEN???” And they just couldn’t do it. It was like an invisible fence to your biscuit dogs.

  • dizzylizzie October 4, 2013 - 5:00 pm Reply

    I like Pina Coladas. And walks in the rain. But mostly just Pina Coladas! We’re having a girls knitting/crochet night tomorrow at a friends house, and Daily’s will be there to make our attempts at craftiness even more interesting! Maybe I’ll go for a Bahama Mama to mix things up!

    Actually, you CAN screw up Daily’s, when, let’s say, your friend brings them for tailgating at a concert and didn’t know they had to be frozen. And, let’s say, you try it anyway, poking a hole in the side (like a Capri Sun), throw a straw in there and you drink that semi-cold pina colada shit like a juice box because you don’t have a choice since you haven’t gotten to the concert venue, yet. Hypothetically speaking.

  • Mollie Moses October 6, 2013 - 3:34 pm Reply

    When I read these comments, I thought there were only 5 varieties. I’m wrong! there are THIRTEEN!! My lucky number. But as it is, I’m not much of a drinker. I like alcohol only if I CANNOT taste it. (The taste, or smell, of alcohol gives me horrific reflux. No taste or smell, I’m fine. Go figure.) I’d like to try them, though – especially the Pink Lemonade or Light Lime.
    As for the poppers, would it be possible to make them in paper muffin cups? sure saves on cleaning up the tins…

  • PanyaV October 6, 2013 - 6:11 pm Reply

    I don’t drink, both for religious reasons and because I don’t like the taste of alcohol. But I love lemonade, so I think I’d probably pick that one if forced to choose. 😉

  • Nicole L October 6, 2013 - 6:17 pm Reply

    I think I need one of each!! Bahama Mama, Blue Hawaiian, Hurricane.. I can’t choose! My local liquor store (I’m stuck in Utah where we have state controlled liquor stores) only has 2 different flavors: strawberry and pina colada. So I’d love to try all the other ones!

Mom: “Yes, but what with it?” Me: IDK SPINACH. luckily my mom figured it out, because I would’ve been up shit creek without a paddle otherwise)
