Tipsified Vixen

For the home hobbyist, here is the recipe for our 2019 Fool's Paradise holiday cocktail.

Tipsified Vixen

2 oz pisco (we liked BarSol Quebranta)
1 oz Italian sweet vermouth
Generous ¼ oz Giffard Banane du Brésil
¼ oz orange juice (or Mandarin, better yet)
¼ oz grapefruit juice (or all orange or Mandarin)
½ tsp uncooked simple syrup (or to taste, depending on juices)
Dash Fernet-Branca
5 coffee beans (reserve 3 for garnish)

Give two coffee beans a slight crack. Add the two beans to a shaker with all liquids and shake until icy cold. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass and float 3 whole coffee beans atop.

Thanks to our genial host Rex and the entire cast of celebrity guests for making the annual office party a gas! Here is the archived program if you missed the fun.

It's that time again!

This Saturday, December 21, tune in to the Fool's Paradise program on the mighty WFMU for everyone's favorite radio sight gag, the holiday tradition the kids all cry for, as ace jock Rex hosts a way-out office party live on the air featuring the zaniest holiday-themed novelty records and on-air gift giving with a cast of celebrity merry-makers. Grade "A" Fancy's chief mixing officer Karen, your the Radio Bartender, will unveil a brand new cocktail cooked up specially for the occasion.

Tune in Saturday 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. If you find yourself snowed in somewhere in the Yukon, you can listen in real time via the miracle of the internet, which I'm told is a series of tubes.

Don't you dare miss it!
