Yesterday was the big broadcast, the annual Fool's Paradise holiday office party on the mighty WFMU. A good time was had by all, as you can hear here. Thank you to our genial host Rex for inviting the Radio Bartender back again. And without further ado here is this year's model, in the tradition of the Corpse Reviver, here is our
Claus Reviver #1
1 ½ ounces Cognac
½ ounce rye
¼ ounce crème de menthe (+ some for rim)
¼ ounce Rhum Barbancourt 4 year
¼ ounce cooled espresso
Dip the rim of a cocktail glass in a little crème de menthe and then in sugar; store in freezer until needed.
Shake liquids and strain into the prepared glass.
To garnish, flame a slice of orange peel over glass then skewer it together with a cocktail cherry.
On Xmas morning after his long night’s work, Santa puts his feet up, says “whew” and swallows one of these. It’s a guaranteed pick-me-up. Happy holidays and here's looking up your chimney!
