This recipe from author and former Gramercy Tavern managing partner Nick Mautone is a blend of Grand Marnier and iced tea that makes a perfect summer-afternoon cooler.
Game plan: We like this Basic Iced Tea recipe for this cooler. Make the tea and refrigerate it up to 8 hours in advance.
Adapted from Nick Mautone
1Using a zester, cut as many long strips of zest from the orange as you can and set them aside. Cut off and discard the remaining white pith, and cut the orange into 8 pieces.
2Place the orange pieces in a small bowl and sprinkle the sugar over them. Muddle until no large chunks remain. Divide the orange mixture among 4 iced tea glasses. Add 1/4 cup of Grand Marnier to each glass and stir well.
3Fill each glass halfway with ice. Divide the reserved zest among the glasses, then fill the rest of the way with ice. Fill the glasses with iced tea and serve with a lemon wedge.
In this Thanksgiving edition of our You’re Doing It All Wrong video series, chef and TV host Michael Chiarello extols the benefits of a brined turkey. Avoid some things (have you ever heard of a blivit?) and embrace others (the bird fits perfectly inside a cooler). If you follow the approach Michael outlines here, he guarantees you one of the juiciest turkey dinners you've ever had. See our Turkey Brining Guide for more info and options (dry brining is great if you're short on space), and our Ultimate Guide to Thanksgiving for everything else you need to know.
Most home bartenders strain their drinks using only a Hawthorne strainer (the kind with the metal spring), which lets a lot of extra ice into their drinks. Jennifer Colliau, bartender at San Francisco’s Heaven’s Dog and owner of Small Hand Foods, shows how adding a tea strainer to the equation will keep ice chips out of your drink, ensuring a properly diluted, tasty cocktail.
In this episode of Chow-to, Guillermo visits a Greenwich Village institution for all things English, Tea and Sympathy. He meets with Nicky Perry (owner and founder) to learn her family’s easy recipe for beef shepherd’s pie (which technically in modern British English is a cottage pie). No matter what you call it, this quarantine-friendly comfort dish uses some ingredients you probably already have in your pantry, and will make you feel cozy all year round. This is an excellent way to make something delicious and inexpensive (you only need ground meat, potatoes, carrots and frozen peas!) that will last for a couple of days, making it perfect for cooking during lockdown.
