Drunk Baking Is The Best Baking: My Drunk Kitchen

Drunk Baking

There was this one time during undergrad where I managed to set a small grease fire in my oven. I gracefully extinguished it with my monogrammed apron, all while saving the cookies–and I didn’t even spill a drop of wine. I then proceeded to document the scene via Instagram with the following hash tags:

#closeone #takemyhousebutnotmywine #burntcookiesarestillgoodcookies #donttrythisathome #friendsletfriendsdrunkbake #thereisachanceimdrunkrightnow #cookiesanyone #sororitygirlbaking

Yeah. It was one of those nights.

Some like to say that it was luck, but I like to think that it was pure talent. I’m what I like to refer to as a pro drunk baker. It all started when I came up with the ever so genius idea of combining my three favorite pastimes: baking, eating, and getting Olivia Pope-style wine wasted. I mean, think about it ladies. What’s better than eating delicious chocolaty brownies fresh out of the oven? Being completely lit while eating said brownies, duh. I know I’m not the only one out there who enjoys indulging in this guilty pleasure.

I guarantee that in each and every sorority, there is a group of talented bakers who also like to get in a drink or two or three before getting their Georgetown Cupcake on. Booze and baking are a match made in heaven. And the best part about it is that if you spill a little bit in the batter, there’s a chance you’ve only enhanced your treat. Rum cake, Dirty Girl Scout cookies, Buttered Rum Blondies–these amazing baked goods and deserts exist for a reason. It’s because they’re the deserts from heaven, made to give you a buzz while also tasting amazing. But that’s neither here nor there. Let’s talk about My Drunk Kitchen.

When I came across this YouTube series, I thought to myself, “I’ve found my people.” If you don’t know what My Drunk Kitchen is, take a look at the Wikipedia description:

“My Drunk Kitchen is a cooking show and comedy series of short videos created and posted on YouTube by Hannah “Harto” Hart. The series features Hart, a 27 year-old San Franciscan proofreader living in Los Angeles, typically attempting to cook or bake various dishes, or otherwise engaging in some food-related activity, all while imbibing large quantities of alcoholic beverages.”

I am all about this YouTube series and if you enjoy getting your drunk baking on, I think you will be, too. So the next time you have a couple of your sisters over for a low key bake-a-thon and the drinks are a-pourin’, turn on this gem and catch a few laughs.
