Jon Taffer of ‘Bar Rescue’ visited Rachel Ray with great recipes

See also

“Bar Rescue,” creator Jon Taffer, was a guest on today’s Rachel Ray Show with some holiday recipes for leftovers in the episode titled, “It’s Our Rollover Show: Holiday Edition!”

As Jon was introduced, he was shown on one of his episodes of "Bar Rescue," where he observed a bartender drinking out of his own shoe! This was just one instance of the outrageous and sometimes, gross happenings he discovers on his fascinating show.

Jon was his jovial self on Rachel’s show, where she and her co-host, Bobby Flay were demonstrating how fans can use holiday leftovers. Jon was there to have fun with Rachel and Bobby, unlike some of the knuckleheads he meets in his own series. He offered his help in using up cranberry sauce to make great cocktails with cranberry flavored vodka and fresh lemon juice. Once put in a shaker and mixed, it was a delicious, and not too sweet.

The next one was a hot drink, using peppermint bark at the bottom of the cup, adding very hot coffee, stir as it melts, add coffee liqueur and whipped cream for a very comforting drink.

Next, Jon gave Rachel and Bobby his top four tips for holiday entertaining:

  • Rather than using a punch bowl that could easily spread germs at this time of year; use a covered pitcher, so drinks can be poured without chance of spreading germs via the handle, and airborne germs that may find their way into the uncovered punch bowl via coughing and sneezing.
  • When entertaining, use Jon’s invention called a “Butt Funnel.” It sounds gross, but really is not; as it is a way of bringing people together for interaction via a smaller passageway from one space to another, forcing people to get closer to each other.
  • Lighting is the next tip; keep green lighting away from entertaining. Keep the lighting dimmer for a cocktail party as everyone looks better in dimmer light.
  • Make a music list on your computer or iPod, make it music people like to dance to or just listen and enjoy. Setting the mood with music will make for great entertaining.

Thanks Jon for those great tips, fans will be watching you on Spike’s “Bar Rescue” on Sunday nights and reading your book, “Raise the Bar.”
