Last Friday, Jen and I went to check out the Federal Donuts event at Art in the Age (creator of Root, Snap and Rhuby). If you’ve read much on this site, you’ll know that not only are these two of our favorite things in Philly, but we love combining them too! Needless to say, we were pretty excited to see what they came up with.
At the Art in the Age storefront, the geniuses over at Federal Donuts made a donut inspired by each of the three AITA spirits. In turn, the AITA folks created cocktails to complement the donuts. The whole thing was oddly circular, and it worked out great. The Root donut in particular was nothing short of fantastic, and the Ramblin’ Rhuby Rose cocktail stood out as a delicious and refreshing punch that would have been great on a hot summer day. The event was topped off by Sour Mash, a local bluegrass/folk outfit that really completed the atmosphere.
After the break, you’ll find the recipes for the three drinks and Jen’s photos from the evening. If you’d like a chance to try out the delicious donuts, head over to Federal Donuts now: they’re still making them for a short time. You won’t be disappointed!
