Holiday "Spirits" to liven up your party

THE SNOW-BUMBLE TINI


Joel Martin, Los Molcajetes , Fort Worth, Texas

Make this cocktail and watch your guests look as excited as a child opening up gifts on Christmas Day, Martin says. The name comes from a holiday movie classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.






Recipe: 1 oz Absolut Vanilla ½ oz of Jameson Irish Whiskey ½ oz of Rumplemintz ½ oz of Kahlua French Vanilla ½ oz of Butterscotch 1 oz Half & Half Cream ½ teaspoon of Sugar Garnish with whipped topping, ground cinnamon & cinnamon stick. Be sure to place the garnish of whipped topping into the glass first. Then, after the ingredients are shaken, pour into the martini glass around the whipped topping so it floats to the top.

Hampden Christmas Lights

Looking for something fun to do over the holidays?  Why not stay in your own backyard and take a stroll down 34th Street?

One block in Hampden puts on a Christmas light display that is surely visible from space. Neighbors in this block of rowhouses string Christmas lights across 34th Street. Inflatable snowglobes, musical trains and blinking angels adorn homes. A few even allow visitors to peek inside.

For 2007, the big switch flip is Saturday, Nov. 24, at 6:30 p.m. The lights stay up until January. Most nights they are lit from dusk to 11 p.m. But they shine all night Christmas Eve. This New Year's Eve look for a Time Square-style ball drop.

To see the lights (700 block of 34th St., between Keswick Rd. and Chestnut St.), park nearby and walk. The street is open to cars, but traffic (on 34th St. and leading up to it) moves extremely slowly. Plus pedestrians, dazed by the holiday lights, make navigating tricky.
