Recipes featured in the program:
Put some ice in a rocks glass
Fill ¾ with ginger ale - I highly recommend Northwoods Soda’s Wild Ginger Ale
Float 1-2 TBSP Red Grenadine (Maraschino cherry juice also works well)
Garnish with 1-2 maraschino cherries
12 green onions, cleaned and trimmed
8 ounces cream cheese
3 packages Buddig beef or ham - Mom used to make these with ham
Cover the white part of the green onion in cream cheese.
Fold the beef, not quite, in half and place the cream cheese covered onion in the middle of the folded beef.
Put a dab of cream cheese on the corner of the beef, this will help hold the meat in place.
Fold the beef over the cream cheese in a V-pattern.
Repeat with a second piece of ham
Place the Polish Roses in a vase of water to display and serve.
1 1/2 C. Ice (about 3 cubes)
2 oz. your choice of gin: Bombay Sapphire
3/4 oz lemon juice
1/2 fl. oz simple syrup
2 oz club soda
Lemon wedge for garnish
Fill a Collins glass with 1 1/2 cups ice, set aside in the freezer. Combine gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add 1 cup ice, cover and shake until chilled. Strain into the chilled Collins glass.Top with club soda and garnish with a lemon wedge
The “Virgil” - named after Tony’s father-in-law, Virgil Tye (but it’s really just vodka on the rocks with lime)
Cover the bottom of a rocks glass with ice
Add 1-2 oz. vodka - Virgil recommends Russian Standard vodka if you can get it. Grey Goose also works.
Squeeze the juice from a lime wedge into the cocktail and drop the wedge into the cocktail
