Every year at Tales of the Cocktail, Hubig’s Pies serves up its sugar-glazed fried pies as the official snack of the annual cocktail conference’s staff and volunteers. But unfortunately this year on the Friday of the conference, a devastating fire ripped through Hubig’s, a bakery that had been selling pies since the ’20s.
But now efforts are being made to help rebuild the legendary bakery. This past Thursday TOTC and Fleurty Girl hosted a party where they sold Hubig t-shirts (proceeds going to the rebuild) and served up a complimentary Hubigs-inspired cocktail created by Chris Hannah of Arnaud’s French 75.
If you’re bummed you couldn’t make the party, here’s the recipe so you can toast Hubig’s at home. And if you’d like to help Hubig’s, buy stuff from their online store.
