Squash Fizz

Say for example you wanted to make squash fritters and then get wasted.

Hibiscus/Jamaica Syrup

From Simply Recipes, but with a little less sugar.

When diluted 1:1 with water, this has ~1/6 the sugar by volume as coke (1.5g/4oz vs. 10g/4oz)

Corn Tortillas

Not that it's worth writing a recipe for, but I don't do it enough to remeber...

Tapioca Pudding

"Adapted" from 101 cookbooks, which is to say I tripled the amount of tapioca, added coconut, and put the egg whites back in.

This is a pantry buster - you bought some tapioca for something and now you need to get rid of it. The coconut too - we bought it for carrot cake, but flake is not the best for cake, shredded is better.

Genoa Vodka

Traditionally with Campari, but I always substitute Aperol for Campari always under all circumstances everywhere.

Smoky Orange

Similar I guess to the "MacArthur" in this suspicious list of whisky cocktails

Cherried brandy is the liquid from brandied cherries, of course!

Chicken Liver Paté

When we run out of stock and schmaltz we buy a whole chicken.

The breasts and legs are removed and usually frozen for later (sometimes the legs make confit).

The fat and skin is rendered into schmaltz.

The carcass - including wings and gizzard - are made into stock.

The liver and heart, and the meat picked from the boiled carcass become paté. The meat to liver ratio is a little high, so this is a relatively dry and textured pate, but the flavor is wonderful. You could easily double or triple the liver for a more traditional, unctuous, pate.

Garam Masala

Garam = Hot. Masala = Spice.

Add to dish at the end of cooking. Add turmeric and fenugreek to push things in a british-style curry powder direction.
