This Saturday, December 19th, tune in to the Fool's Paradise program on the Fun 91, WFMU for the holiday tradition the kids all cry for, when your deejay Rex hosts a way-out office party on the air featuring more zany holiday-themed novelty records than anyone might think is prudent. But wait—there’s more. Grade "A" Fancy's chief mixing officer Karen, your the Radio Bartender, will unveil a brand new cocktail shaken up specially for the occasion.
What will it be? Tune on Saturday from 1 to 3pm ET on the mighty WFMU 91.1 FM Jersey City, and 90.1 in the Hudson Valley. If you find yourself stranded somewhere in the Yukon, you can listen in real time at WFMU.org, via the miracle of the internet.
What will you need to play the home game?
Here is your shopping list (check it twice):
Scotch (a blended one; Famous Grouse is good, and Ballantine's is terrific—their bottle still looks like the bellboy brought it up)
Amaretto (Lazzaroni brand suggested)
Cynar bitter liqueur
Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas’ Own Decanter Bitters
an orange (for juice)
We'll see you Saturday! Or you'll hear us. You know what we mean, listen in already. And check this space after the show for the official recipe.
