With the recipes developed and the food shot, Thanksgiving is officially over in the test kitchen. We’re now turning our focus toward the New Year holiday and ringing in 2009. It’s going to be a fun one because we’re showcasing food and libations from all over the world—literally. Our research has led us to drinks from the South Pacific to bites from the United Kingdom. We’ll be spending the rest of the month toiling away at the details (let’s just say Antarctic sno cones are involved).

For now, we’re still giggling over the oddest cocktail name of all—the duck fart—from Alaska. It’s said to be named for the chortle of approval given by the woman who first tried the drink. We’ll report back shortly once we’ve tried it for ourselves.
