Turkey a la vodka tops for Thanksgiving, says Irish bar owner

Friday, November 18, 2011

An Irish pub owner in New York is serving turkey a la vodka for Thanksgiving – a recipe he says his mother created for him back in Ireland.

Paul Hurley of O’Casey’s bar in midtown Manhattan will inject all his birds with 100-proof Georgi vodka to liven up Turkey Day for customers.

“It’s a turkey you can eat and drink at the same time, but you’ll need a cab home,” Hurley told the New York Post. There’s an ounce of turkey in every bite.

On Sunday, chef Paul Loftus began injecting eight ounces of vodka into each of the 20 pound birds.

Already more than 124 holiday boozers have signed up for the bird. A whole cooked turkey goes for $69.

Hurley says his mom in Ireland came up with the idea.

The bar owner said: “On Christmas my mom said ‘why not try some vodka in the turkey.’”
