On November 18th, raise a glass to the longest running broadcaster, Regis Philbin, as he signs off from over 28 years on-air. Toast ‘Reeg’ and sip on this sparkling kiwi margarita, a cocktail he would order at one of his favorite NYC hot spots, The Atlantic Grill.
This delicious Marga-Regis! features kiwi as a key ingredient for a little touch of green in honor of the beloved host’s extreme Irish pride for alma mater Notre Dame. It is the perfect easy-to-make addition to at-home celebrations for the final episode of “Live! With Regis and Kelly”.
Watch Regis give Atlantic Grill a shot out on the show!
