So I spent this morning catching up with my podcasts and the blogsphere when what do I find but the name of my little drunken corner of the internet right on the IHoP Top X post!
|Fame = Fortune = More Suits = Success|
Now, mad fanboy hysteria aside, I'd like to give massive thanks to Lauby and Brent for taking the time to check out the blog and I'm glad I'm doing something that actually entertains someone -unlike Archnomad...-
So to celebrate I'll do what I do best...MAKE COCKTAILS:
Belvedere Black RaspberryVodka 50ml/2oz
Strawberry Jam 1.5 Teaspoons
Lemon Juice 25ml/1oz
Mint Syrup 10ml/ 0.3oz
Shaken with ice and fine strained into a martini glass. The end result should give a very refreshing drink that tastes of mixed berries, but has the sharpness of the lemon and mint to it to cleanse the palette. the drink should be a deep red/purple depending on the jam used and you should use a sprig of fresh mint as a garnish. Awesome! And also the vodka is super premium and hits you like a freight train. Yey Polish vodka!
Strictly Brent Mai Tai (Midnight Mai Tai)
Havana Anejo Especial 15ml/0.5oz
(Gold rum for those without access to Cuban Rum)
Havana Anejo Bianco 15ml/0.5ml
Blue Curacao 20ml/1oz
Lime Juice 18ml/0.75oz
Sugar Syrup 10ml/0.3oz
Pineapple Juice 25ml.1oz
Orgeat Syrup 10ml/0.3oz
Pomegranate Grenadine 10ml/0.3ml
I was gonna save this bad boy for a cocktail feature, but I really want to get it out there for you all! I tactically deployed this bad boy at the weekend for the punters in the bar and it was a massive hit. A great looking tiki cocktail; it should be a deep blue - which kinda reminded me of Strictly Average's background- and has a mint leaf garnish. If you want to make it really cheeky, get a Myers or Pussers float on the top and take a look at the colours in the drink, looks absolutely beautiful -I really should get a picture of one actually- and tastes great.
So all that's really left to say is thank you once again John and Brent for doing a great job and taking the time to check out the blog, it's been a great boost.
Now back to the Lilt...
PS. Archnomad is actually a good guy and posts far more relevant things than I, check out Skavenblight if you get the chance...it looks so good cos of me ;)
