bourbon spiked chilli dogs

this is a little adult play on a childhood bonfire night classic, these chilli dogs spiked with some bourbon. I love chilli con carne and hot dogs to together they are a match made in heaven. I bet they would also be delicious with some melted cheese too. I love this time of year. as a kid we would go so huge bonfires and eat hot dogs, caramel apples and drink hot apple juice. I was never that keen on the fire works though. I remember one year he held a firework party in our garden for all the family and friends on bonfire night and the table with the fire works on fell over and they all came flying towards us, I got hit in the arm and it burned a whole in my sleeve but thankfully I was unhurt, other than that it was a great night, now my neighbours build a big fire and cook jacket potatoes and let of fire works each year. I made these in collaboration with anthropoligie and all the items you see in the photos are from their beautiful store. it is my favourite shop so I love being able to work with them. how beautiful is the cheeseboard  used to plate them.
