Prepare your ears for the wildest holiday-themed novelty records and the sounds of on-air gift giving with a cast of celebrity merry-makers. This Saturday everyone's fave holiday tradition, the Radio Bartender, returns to the "Fool's Paradise" featuring Rex on the mighty WFMU! As always, Grade "A" Fancy's head mixist Karen will unveil a new cocktail for the occasion, live in the studio, amid much radio hi-jinx.
Tune in this Saturday, December 23, from 1 to 3pm on the Fun 91! In the New York City area it's WFMU 91.1 fm Jersey City, and 90.1 in the Hudson Valley. Children of any land can listen in real time via the miracle of the internet.
Here it is! Your official Fool's Paradise cocktail for 2017:
The Three Wiseacres
1 oz. Irish whiskey (we used Powers)
1 oz. Pimm's No.1
1 oz. agua de jamaica*
1/2 oz. Becherovka
optional dash oxymel (1:1 honey and apple cider vinegar)
optional dash walnut bitters (we used Boy Drinks World) or walnut liqueur
garnish with twist of lemon peel
*Agua de jamaica is the Mexican name for hibiscus tea. It is called sorel in Jamaica. The dried flowers are available in Hispanic markets and better fruit stands. We used 1 cup flowers to 2 quarts water and 3/4 cup sugar, as recommended here, although you may want to halve the recipe. Go easy on the spices, since the Pimm's and the Becherovka are both spiced.
