Toast of the Town

In honor of our Sweet Sixteen-bound Tar Heels, here are two recipes with a Tar Heel theme!

First, the perfect drink with which to toast the hometown 'Heels. This is a REAL drink. I found it here while searching for something completely different and may try this when I can drink.

The Chapel Hill

1 1/2 oz bourbon whiskey
1/2 oz Blue Curacao
1 tbsp lemon juice

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake well, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist of orange or lemon peel, and serve.

The original version just calls for a generic Triple Sec, but Blue Curacao is the most appropriate one I think. Don't you?

BTW I learned something here: (although in retrospect, I suppose I should have known...) Triple Sec is called that because it is trebly distilled (sec being short for "secado" or dried, Triple Sec is originally from the Caribbean)

Or, if you'd rather indulge in something more chocolatey try this one....

Tar Heel Pie

1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup chopped pecans
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs (beaten)
1 - 9 inch unbaked pie shell

Pour warm butter over chocolate chips and stir. Blend remaining ingredients and stir into chocolate chip mixture. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes

Temperature: 350°

Baking Time: 30-40 minutes.

A recipe like that Tar Heel Pie can only come from the devil. You are an evil woman, and I shall hate you with every bite I take. ;-)
