Don't Touch that Dial: Imbibe on TV

Earlier this week, our publisher, Karen Foley, appeared on Portland's AM Northwest program on ABC to share festive holiday drinks recipes from Imbibe. You may have seen these tasty cocktails and mocktails on our pages, but now you can see them mixed up on live morning TV!

Karen shares the Belle de Jour (from Jackson Cannon, Eastern Standard in Boston) and Champagne Pear (from Kelley Swenson, Ten 01 in Portland) cocktails from the Nov/Dec 07 issue as well as a super-quick rendition of Imbibe's own mocktail from Nov/Dec 06: The Ruby Sparkler.

A few notes for the curious: The prosecco is Fantinel, which is a really nice bubbly that runs ony about $15 a bottle, and the grenadine is from Stirrings, a great store-bought option if you don't have time to make your own. We used an Anjou pear for the Ruby Sparkler (juicy and sweet), and we had a Concorde pear (nice and crisp) ready for garnising on the Champagne Pear, but as you'll see, we were crunched for time.

Nice segment! Thanks so much for the grenadine rec. I've been looking for an alternative to Roses, and I'm too lazy to make it from scratch, so this is perfect.
