Awhile back, I was at a thrift store looking for old records and came across this plain black folder. I almost passed it up, but something told me to take a look inside and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was full of old recipe pamphlets!
I bought it and took it home, with plans to sit down and go through all of them, but one thing led to another and I had forgotten about it.
So, yesterday, I was sorting through my recipe books when I found it again and I settled down in front of the fire, to take a gander and came across this one....
and I laughed until I almost cried!
Who knew that vodka parties were started by the rich and famous! Heck, I didn't even know that there was such a thing as a Vodka Party, and it's been about 50 years since this pamphlet came out. I guess I'm late to the trend.
Variety that leaves you breathless?! Let's take a look...
Hmmm.... I don't know about being breathless, but A Green Dragon would certainly make me comatose and that bullshot, would make me throw up.
Drinking vodka makes you smarter? Well then, these people must be geniuses! They've certainly had plenty to drink.
Vodka Steamer? Poor choice for a name to begin with, but even with a better name, it's still disgusting! Whoever came up with it, must have had too many Green Dragons.
Let's see what these people came up with to eat with those lovely drinks.....
Well, not bad, except the broiled anchovies. No thank you!
Wait! There's more.....
Drunk people must love A1 sauce, because it's in almost every dish. Who would have thought that you could just throw a chunk of cream cheese in a bowl and poor A1 sauce on it and call it good?!
Ooooo..... flaming dishes! Nothing says fun like having a plate of fire around a bunch of tanked guests!
And now that everyone is properly hammered and have set the house on fire, let's name the concoctions we came up with!
I don't know about you, but after drinking that much alcohol, I wouldn't be able to speak, much less come up with new names.
Oh wait.... maybe that's what they meant by it "leaving you breathless".
Although, I think passed out drunk would be more accurate.
Those people really knew how to party! I can't wait to see what else that folder has in store for us.
Until next time....
