Radio Holiday Hijinx Update

Now that Christmas has come and gone, let's send an extra large Santa-sized thank you to WFMU Good Guy and host of the Fool's Paradise program for another swinging on air office party. If you missed it, or feel like you must relive those two hours of radio magic, the archived show can be found here.

Now it can be told: this year's holiday cocktail is the Holy Moly. The revelers in Studio A seemed to like it. How's about we shake one up?

The Holy Moly

The goods:
1 cardamom pod
1-1/2 oz. rye whiskey
1/2 oz. Choya Umeshu Japanese plum wine (look for it in the mod cylindrical bottle)
1/2 oz. orange juice
1/4 oz. Crème de Cassis
Barspoon (1/2 tsp.) Yellow Chartreuse
1 or 2 dashes Angostura bitters
One drop Fee’s Old Fashion bitters (optional)
Garnish: Orange peel
The how-to:
  • Toast cardamom pod in a dry skillet for a few minutes. (Toasting optional but it does improve the flavor.)
  • Crush cardamom pod lightly and add to cocktail shaker.
  • Add all liquids and ice and shake well.
  • Strain into chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a twist of orange peel.

Hope everybody had a cool Yule. See you in the New Year!
