Our democracy is crumbling. Whatever happens, Trump will be in the White House after January thanks to his Republican false prophets.

To counter our despair, we planned an Impeachment Dinner Party. Because making up food puns is a better use of our energy.

No, we didn’t solve our country’s problems. But we gave a few friends a much-needed laugh. A tasty meal. Bottles of wine. And hopefully, a bit of courage to counter uncertainty and chaos.

Impeachment Dinner Table Setting

For The Whistleblower Cocktail

1 bottle Giuliana Prosecco
1 red beet (roasted and diced)
1 kohlrabi or rutabega (diced)
1 apple (diced)
1 tbsp sugar

Giuliana Prosecco with Russian muddling, you ask? Of course!

Make a sweet borscht by sauteing diced beet, kohlrabi, apple and sugar. Cook, stirring every minute or so, until soft. Cool. Puree in a food processor or using a food mill. Spoon into the bottom of a champagne flute. Add Prosecco. Fight the urge to chug.
