Kringle Tingle

Here it is folks, the secret recipe for the 2010 edition of the Grade "A" Fancy holiday cocktail, The Kringle Tingle Thanks to Rex, one of our favorite WFMU Good Guys, and mastermind of the Fool's Paradise radio program, for hosting the most swinging Christmas party ever. 

The Kringle Tingle
as debuted 12-25-10 on-air
Fool's Paradise
WFMU

2 1/2 ounces Cognac
1 ounce Dubonnet rouge
1/2 ounce Crème de Cassis
4 shakes Fee's Old Fashion Aromatic Bitters


Add all ingredients into a shaker half-filled with ice.  Shake; strain into a chilled cocktail glass.


Garnish:  a twist of lemon peel.  Optional:  if you're insured, flame peel over the glass.  

Yield: one extra-large (Santa-sized) cocktail.


Grade "A" Karen shakes it up, while Nancy points out the action.  
Cheryl adds her two cents.  Todd-o-phonic Todd smells trouble.

 Sorcery!
 Kaboom!
