Drunken Coleslaw

Pictured above are our crazy and fun-loving friends Connie and Kevin at a Halloween party we all went too!  I've known these two since my 20's.  Connie was my older sisters friend and when they moved to Phoenix in 93  I helped them buy a home and we became fast friends. The four of us have had a LOT of fun over the years doing all kinds of silly stuff.  Too many costumes and events to possibly blog about!! And we continue to do our 'job' coming up with new plans and ideas. Most of the plans are around cooking and wine!  Fun!

 

Last Saturday we were over at their home for dinner.  Kevin did his usual smoker thing and Connie slipped in Drunken Coleslaw. It was delicious!  I asked her how she made it. It tasted  so very different than other coleslaws I've had over the years. Connie said it was the easiest recipe - ever! She keeps the ingredients on hand all the time as you never know when you need a quick dish to serve up or bring to a party.

 

Drunken Coleslaw Recipe

 

2 cups raisins

1 cup rum - whatever kind you have on hand

Marie's Coleslaw Dressing

1 package coleslaw  (14 ounces)I prefer 3 or 4 color variety

 

Soak the raisins in rum over night in the refrigerator. Put the bag of coleslaw mix in a bowl. Mix  in 2 or 3 tablespoons of Marie's Coleslaw dressing or as much as you prefer. I don't like a lot of dressing in coleslaw so 2 or 3 tablespoons worked for us. Drain (do not rinse them) about 1/4 cup of the raisins, add to the coleslaw, mix in well.

 

Keep the soaked raisins in the refrigerator along with Marie's Dressing for future salads.  All you need to pick up is the coleslaw package!

 

You see I said it would be so easy to make!! And you're going to love it as will your guests!  Enjoy your Drunken Coleslaw!

 

Thanks to Rocky Dickerson for hosting July Challenge- Savory Stories! It has been so fun reading all the 'recipes'!  And now I'm hungry!

Hi Raymond Henson, eXp Realty it is so easy, simple and sooo good!  I haven't had a rum and coke since college days!  Wow....that's long time ago.   Great idea for raisin cake!!

I never realized that so many people put raisins in so many things these days that I'm seeing on social media that looks mighty good though. Love and light

Thankyou Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS !  I made it again last night for friends and it was even better as the raisins had been marinating in the rum for over a week!

Well, like Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty, I'm wondering WHO KNEW?! I am adding raisins to my shopping list. No need to add the Rum - it's a staple in our home! LOL

 

I am going to the beach next week so, this will definitely be on my menu. It sounds like it will go well with seafood and that's usually what I cook when it's my night to cook! Thank you for sharing this, Anna!

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker - If I ever have a party and I want it to be a fun & huge success, would you please fly over in your yellow jet and bring Connie & Kevin as your guests? I'll be sure to have all the ingredients ready for Connie to mix it all up because as we know, it's not always about what goes into a salad, it's about the person who makes the salad!
