Jellyfish Shot and a Cookbook

Jellyfish shot. The sound of that is not exactly appetizing and the images in my mind, before I actually knew what it was, were even less attractive. I know, I live under a rock and need to get out more often. But I gotta give it to the Tipsy Bartender – not only does it look cool, it tastes amazing too!   Jellyfish Shot You don’t need to measure the Continue Reading…

Photo Friday 29 – Seascape 2

A day at the beach restores the soul. Seascape is on the top of my list of favorite things to photograph. I think if I lived by the sea I’d be taking photos of every sunrise and sunset.

What kind of beer you put in your beer and cheddar soup is totally up to you and your beer preference. If you love robust flavor use ale or go with something lighter, like a pilsner, for a more subtle hint. Too dark of a beer Continue Reading…

Peach Sangria Bellini

Cold drink in my hand for three years of blogging! That couldn’t go unnoticed. I’m back just to mark my bloggiversary and share this simple, but sophisticated cocktail with you. Peach sangria Bellini is my new-found favorite. I went through some lengths to find the Monin peach syrup. I stepped into every liquor store in town to no avail. In the end I ordered it online. Taking a break from Continue Reading…
