Curries to Caviar: My chronicles of global good eats
On Strawberry Martinis and Rigor Mortis and Things
My H has upped the stakes in the 'surpises-at-midnight-on-birthday-eve' department at our place. He's turned mixologist ! Less effort than cooking/baking (and less cleaning up!), more wow factor - and gorgeous cocktails ! And if you're considering getting stocked up on the tools, here's the lowdown!
The intention to go the 'strawberry way' could be have been born after a fun evening out with friends and family that basically went like - frozen strawberry margaritas, tequila shots with lime and salt, more tequila shots and resulting peals of laughter that continued well into the night!
So while I deal with wondering if the blog looks right , tackle to-dos higher up on the totem pole of importance than food posts right now and generally, get fired up for the next cook-off - here's a post acknowledging his 'ka-chunk ka-chunk shakes' on my birthday eve (back in Oct actually, so timely post - not!) and awesome martinis :) And of course to hoping the good work continues :)
For those who're rushing to chill their glasses and shaker, find the recipe here! You can add the 'sugar coated rim touch' if you like, but the H used the deepest red strawberries and it was just as great without. "Shaken, not stirred" !
I am a self-taught foodie, discovering good drinks and global great eats, one day at a time. I revel in all things food, drink, travel and culture and the threads in between.
My ‘repertoire’(if I can call a collection of favourite recipes(mostly vegetarian) on my laptop just that!) is a melting pot (no pun intended) of the spiciest of curries and the most delicate of amuse bouche.
I hope you enjoy reading through my experiments as much as I enjoy inflicting them on my near and dear ones!
