Happy National Liver & Onions Day! Today we’re going to delve into the archives for the occasion. A version of this post first appeared on the DiS1972 blog August 2, 2012. I decided to make No. 33 for my friend, Claire. Before she arrived, I assembled the Jellied-Lime Cucumber Salad and the Jelly Roll. IContinue reading National Liver & Onions Day: 33.

May is National Salad Month! To celebrate, I perused the archives and am sharing with you one of my all-time favorite dishes, Watergate Salad. A version of this post first appeared on the DiS1972 blog in June of 2013. You might know this dish by other names: ambrosia, Pistachio Delight, green stuff–but I prefer WatergateContinue reading National Salad Month: Ruth Barnaby’s Watergate Salad →

Smirnoff Madras (1974)

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 11/03/2022 - 5:51am in

Here we go again! The Madras (how to do what we couldn’t) People who mean well are always advising us to mix Smirnoff with something it ought to mix with but doesn’t. We’ve got a whole list of promising possibilities that always turn out yukky. Cranberry juice used to be in the number one spot.Continue reading Smirnoff Madras (1974) →

Smirnoff Horseshot (1976)

More winter fun from the folks over at Smirnoff! After a long day on the slopes, Alec likes to retire to his chalet with a snow bunny. There’s nothing like an apres-ski Smirnoff Horseshot. The Horseshot has a pleasantly rambunctious edge to it–just like Patty, who suggested they go back to his place and wrestle.Continue reading Smirnoff Horseshot (1976) →

Smirnoff Copperhead (1974)

I can’t stop writing these. Version one appeared in Playboy with the following copy: We wondered recently how come we’d mixed Smirnoff with so many fancy juices but studiously avoided plain old gingerale. Maybe because our parents had mixed gingerale with everything, we were rebelling. Anyway, we did it. We mixed Smirnoff and gingerale, added aContinue reading Smirnoff Copperhead (1974) →

Smirnoff Bloodhound (1974)

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 28/01/2022 - 3:05am in

  Another Smirnoff cocktail–the Bloodhound! And another block of boring and confusing copy. What’s red, has Smirnoff in it and is served in a tall glass? Think you know? Suppose we add it’s easy to make and it has a nut-like taste instead of a spicy one? Still confident? Well, even we were fooled whenContinue reading Smirnoff Bloodhound (1974) →
