This is the time of year when a lot of places in the country start their big annual fairs and where I live (in Allentown, PA) we are no exception. The Great Allentown Fair is filled with rides, animals, food judging, big name musical acts and fried food as far as the eye can see (as well as questionable human hygiene that makes being near throngs of people gag worthy).
But the only reason I attend the fair (besides paying a quarter to see a really big pig…yes, there is still a place in this world where a quarter will get you something awesome) is to down copious amounts of fried pickles, Twinkies and dough balls. And while I usually pay internally for that gluttony, I am always happy to have made the choice (after I finish crying over my ass-ripping).
But with all the offerings of fried food available at the fair, I’ve always felt that something was missing…fried alcohol, which seemed impossible to make into a reality, until I realized that someone actually did (thanks to the cooking geniuses from Oh Bite It).
And, better yet, it’s totally easy to make. The only food stuffs needed for this dish from Booze Heaven is: Pre-Made Angel Food Cake (from your local bakery, or grocery store), Tequila, Oil for frying and powdered sugar. Yep that’s it…seriously, this shit is easier to make than spaghetti.
There’s not a single food item that wouldn’t be made better than by coating it and dumping it in hot oil. Say what you will about fried food. You might not die healthy, but you sure as hell are going to be happy.
If you want to give your Deep Fried Tequila a nice presentation for a dinner/cocktail party (or eating alone in bed while binge-watching Orange Is The New Black) all you need to do is to dip a shot glass into some frosting and then coat it in some lime zest.

Now tell me this shouldn’t be offered to the fair-going masses by a guy who doesn’t wash his hands:
