• OG Gin and Juice or Remix?
“Everyone knows gin and juice is my drink of choice,” Snoop says. “After the original comes the remix. After 25 years of mixing that Tanqueray with the OJ, it was time to put a fresh twist on the classic. We still add a splash of juice, only now we hit it with pineapple to give the whole thang a tropical vibe. You can do both OG and the Remix for T-Day. Just set up some Tanqueray, Ciroc, orange juice, and pineapple juice and let the homies make what they want.”
You’ll find a recipe for both drinks in “From Crook to Cook.” For the OG gin and juice: “Take some gin, take some juice, mix it up. That’s it.” The remix uses pineapple-flavored vodka and pineapple juice.
• The Ain’t No Jive Turkey
“I always keep OJ in the fridge and oranges in my kitchen. Martha makes a lot of recipes with lemon, and it just made sense for me to use oranges since I love the flavor,” Snoop admits. “And ooh-wee does it work for turkey.” The rapper is an unofficial turkey expert. For years, he has given out birds to locals in Inglewood, Calif.
“I’m always lookin’ for ways to use all kinds of herbs. Don’t they make everything better?” he continues. “I don’t get down with no bland turkey, and unless you add plenty of herbs in a thick rich coat of butter, nobody is getting excited about that bird. It’s the main event. It better have all that flavor.”
• Sweet Potato, Pumpkin Pie
“When I was making my cookbook I had to get sweet potato pie in there,” Snoop says. “These days everyone is into pumpkin spice, but I skip the pumpkin — sweet potato pie is a real ‘hood staple and Broadus family favorite. A little orange makes the sweet potato flavor stronger, and that’s what you’re here for, right?”
• Turn Up for T-Day
Snoop said: “I love a good Turkey Day turn-up. Every year, I host a special Thanksgiving episode on my show, GGN. Everyone from T.I., Margaret Cho, Bishop Magic Don Juan turns up, and we talk everything from politics to religion, always with a big plate of turkey, mashed potatoes, and greens. With plenty of drinks and herbs of all types, ya dig? We always end up talking about what we’re grateful for in this life.”
• M.O.P: Mash Out Potatoes
“This is where you load up that plate,” Snoop says. “And make sure you’re getting ready for the coming cold season. Even in Cali, in November the weather starts to dip, so no need to keep that beach bod. Just as well, ’cause you know I add that cream to give my mash that classic, buttery texture. It’s the holidays — relax your mind and let your conscious be free.”
Snoop’s reasoning: “Mayonnaise is another thing I always keep in the fridge.
