Happy 4th Of July: New Orleans Saints Style (Video & Recipe)

Happy 4th of July! Thanks go out to all our readers that are responsible for making one of the best and most successful Saints sites on the Internet. Enjoy today with your friends and family but please don’t forget those who have served, fought and died for this great country.

Big shout out to all the military personnel world wide . Thank you for all you do and for the services you provide to ensure that we may enjoy our freedoms. We live in the greatest country in the world, the USA!

Happy birthday to the United States and a thank you to our forefathers, especially Thomas Jefferson, for penning and commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, which declared our independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – famous line of the Declaration of Independence.

My present to the Who Dat nation for the day is a recipe for the “Who Dat Highball”, a concoction thought up prior to the Saints Super Bowl XLIV appearance.

Who Dat Highball:

2 oz. cognac
1 oz. apple-lemon syrup
club soda

Fill highball glass with ice. Pour in cognac and syrup. Top off with club soda and garnish with a lemon wheel.

*Apple-Lemon Syrup
(enough for 10 cocktails)

1 1/2 cups water
1 apple–cored, peeled and cut into pieces
zest of half a lemon (just the peel, no white pith)
1 cup sugar

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and boil. Strain out solids and pour the syrup into a container. Cool syrup and refrigerate. To make syrup last longer, add a 1/2 oz. of vodka.

Lastly, here are some video hightlighting some of the Sains best plays in recent memories, much of which have to do with the Super Bowl. Enjoy my friends, enjoy.
