As I am sitting here, with my glass of Cranberry Harvest Beer from Cape Cod Beer writing this blog, I have to make mention of my friends at Kappy's, located at 333 Iyannough Road, or online at hyannis.kappys.com or on facebook or twitter and instagram. This month they have two big events coming up, the first on November 16th is their Autumn Wine Tasting event from 2pm-5pm. Lots of good wine to taste and special on multiple bottle purchases.This is a major event for those who are wine lovers and a chance to try something new that you would have not otherwise tried. Then the following weekend, and just a weekend before Thanksgiving on November 23rd is their Grand Whiskey Tasting event. Folks what is a good holiday feast without a good Bourbon, Scotch, Rye, or some other great whiskey or is it whisky. Try something you have never had before, try something you thought you didn't like, maybe your tastes have changed. Talk to folks who make whiskey their business on pairings to go with Holiday dinners and especially desserts.Don't ruin a great dinner with bad whiskey, come check it out and and get the right whiskey for you and yours this Holiday season. Hope to see you there, I know I will be.
This week's recipe: Pink Bikini Cocktail Punch
1 1.75 L bottle of Raspberry Lemonade. (such as Minute Maid, Simply Lemonade, or your favorite)
1 3/4 cups coconut rum
1 cup amaretto liqueur
Combine raspberry lemonade, coconut rum, and amaretto liqueur in a large pitcher. Stir well, and serve over ice. You can easily double or triple this receipt for larger groups. And float a raspberry lemonade ring with mint leaves in it or raspberry lemonade ice cubs to keep cold.
