Here at Spirit & Co. we couldn’t be more excited for the start of baseball season— and those delicious ballpark dogs, of course!
While grilling up an original all-beef frank is as easy as A-B-C, when it comes to condiments things can get… well, controversial.
Enter mustard & ketchup. Yes, you read that right: ketchup.
Those who decry ketchup for "ruining" a hot dog are most often students of the mustard-only school, or Chicagoans. That said, we’re Chicagoans who like a little yellow and red on our frank— and we’re not afraid to admit it.
A favorite among customers, our Vodka & Italian Tomato Ketchup is hand-crafted in small batches with premium American Vodka from select grain, distilled four times and bottled in Kentucky. Made with imported San Marzano Italian tomatoes, our ketchup is a perfect addition to your baseball game frank.
And our Irish Whiskey & Honey Mustard? Produced in small batches with barrel-aged Irish whiskey, we’re proud to say our mustard is irresistibly delicious. Master distilled and blended in Ireland, it’s infused with both clover honey and agave nectar, giving it a tangy finish that will upgrade any baseball grub or snack (yes, even those peanuts— we dare you!).
Condiments aside, you also can’t forget the toppings. We’re talking: pickle spears, chopped onions, relish, tomato, pickled peppers, and celery salt.
Bottom line? The real game changer when it comes to stadium-style hot dogs isn’t the frank itself, but what you put on it.
While you can go to your local grocery to get everything you need to make a stadium-style hot dog right at home, we suggest opting for a bottle of our Irish Whiskey & Honey Mustard and Vodka & Italian Tomato Ketchup to spice things up. Trust us, whether your team wins (go, Cubs!) or loses (sorry, Mets), you won’t regret it. (And neither will your appetite.)
