Cliff made a cocktail with original Bailey's, rum, vodka, and vanilla bean. It looks like he might have toasted marshmallows floating on top as well. Mixologist actually picks up the drink this time. Cliff's snack is grilled beef and a crÃ¨me fraÃ®che fondue (meaning "sauce" in this instance) with nutmeg and dark chocolate shavings. He's placed it all on a sesame wafer. Mixologist says, "I was kinda hoping someone would do a burger and a Bailey's shake." Ooh, they have those adult shakes at Town Talk Diner in Minneapolis. Yum. There's this one called Monkey Business that has chocolate, banana, peanut butter, and bourbon and another called Karmel Kamelion with cider reduction, caramel, pecans, and applejack brandy. Next time I'm home, I'm so trying their Irish Float with Guinness and vanilla ice cream. Sam did a Bailey's hot chocolate flavored with Godiva liqueur and ice cream, accompanied by eggnog French toast topped with sautÃ©ed apple, rosemary, and onions. Marcel got all molecular gastronomical on this challenge and made something he calls, "Fire and Smoke." It's a trio. I like how Bravo's graphics department has decided that what Marcel really meant was "Smoke and Fire." It's nice they're there to help the cheftestants know their own mind. He's got a shot of scotch, a glass demitasse cup of coffee and Bailey's, and the snack. The snack is pancetta, potato, and coffee grinds. Huh. I usually throw my coffee grinds away. I'll know better next time. Marcel's snack is also described as "with vanilla vapor." Oh, yes. See, that wormy thing we saw getting brÃ»lÃ©ed earlier was vanilla bean, and the snack is balanced on the mouth of the vanilla bean-filled double-shot glass where it is getting vaporized by the smoking bean. You know, I used to think pancetta plus anything was heaven. But I might draw the line at vanilla potatoes and coffee grinds. Mixologist likes the salty and the sweet.
Ted Ilan made a cocktail with Bailey's, Guinness-whipped egg whites, and scotch. His snack is a maztoh pancake topped with horseradish, beets, and a pan-fried egg yolk. Mixologist eats without giving an opinion. Mia presents her cocktail that she has named, "Chocolate Mama." Because... that's what she is? It's chocolate-mint Baileys, Crown Royal, and orange juice. NASTY! Chocolate-mint and orange juice? Could she have made a drink that tastes more like shaken-not-stirred sick? I guess the Chocolate Mama saves you the trouble of getting drunk, having head spins, and hurling all night. It just does an end run and takes you straight to the vomit. I'm doing a full-body shudder over here. Mia's snack is a Danish apple crisp topped with limp slaps of grilled mango and Brie. "It's a pretty basic presentation for your drink," Mixologist says. Mia's drink is in a water glass, filled halfway with the Sick, and garnished with an orange slice. Going from nausea to nirvana, we see that Elia has made a caramel Baileys cappuccino with ginger and a chocolate and caramelized nut petit fours (small fancy cakes or cookies).
