My friend Erik’s ribs were finger-licking good. These ribs explode with flavor when you pair dry spices along with a wet sauce containing dark rum, Dijon and maple syrup. A must have recipe for any BBQ grill fanatic. These ribs will easily become your new summertime BBQ addiction.
I love to grill. I love to eat. This is a man’s recipe so it’s very open to adjustments to fit personal taste buds.
I learned how to make succulent tasting ribs that fall off the bone from my Mom. Made a few minor adjustments but the concept is the same. There are thousands of ways to grill ribs, and there tons of professionals that will read this and say what a tool. I am not a professional… I don’t have a freaking smoker and can’t get logs of mesquite or hickory wood. What I do have is a grill (gas) and an oven. Which is all you need if you want succulent ribs that fall apart in your mouth.
Inspired by the wonderful grilled cheese sandwiches at Drink, Fort Point, Boston, MA and a couple of their fantastic cocktails, the Chicken Tandoori Grilled Cheese Sandwich was conceived. Bringing together great friends, refreshing drinks, and perfect weather, it was a no brainer to fire up the grill and bring a classic grilled cheese sandwich to life; a fusion of a traditional Indian chicken dish with the comfort of an American classic into an elegant balance of East meets West.
In search for a new drink to enjoy, the bar at the Naked Fish in Waltham, MA set the location for the birth of The Snoop Special in 2003. A combination of Stoli vodkas with cranberry juice transforms a Cape Codder into the Snoop Special bringing out highlights of orange, vanilla, and raspberry. Feel free to swing by the Naked Fish and order one at the bar (see Tim, Rich, Keanan, or Rob) or try one at home with family and friends.
Crispy fried tofu is another healthy, low calorie appetizer. The spicy Asian dipping sauce is based on ssam jaang, a Korean dipping sauce. In addition to Thai chili bird peppers, I’ve omitted rice wine vinegar and soy bean paste (both used when making ssam jaang – as I understand). I love meat – all meat. Even raw meat…and yet, I still enjoy this quick and easy to make dish! Hope you enjoy as well. Don’t forget to leave a comment below – thanks!
If you like whiskey and Coke, you’ll probably enjoy Johnnie Walker Black Label and Root Beer as well. Even if you’re not crazy about root beer – I’d still recommend giving this drink a shot – at least! The whiskey/root beer blend, in my opinion, is a perfect concoction; although, I know several people who simply don’t care for the nameless drink. Black and root beer is great during the Summer (root beer) and certainly appropriate for the Winter months(Black Label). A good Boston drink.
For obvious reasons, I’m not gonna follow Linda’s recipe format – so, let’s begin!
Start with your favorite rock glass (if during the Summer – try freezing glass beforehand) and fill with ice. Pour one part Johnnie Walker Black Label then one part root beer. That’s it! I prefer A&W Root Beer as I feel A&W has more carbonation/foam. If you like, feel free to stir after pouring; however, I don’t feel it’s necessary. Try experimenting with different root beers and whiskeys (maybe vanilla ice cream too?), but be sure to comment below! Hope you enjoy and please drink responsibly.
