Cool splashes for hot summer days & nights – click at the photos for
what+how-to all found at Pinterest … SLURP … SIP … ENJOY!
Well, Valentine’s Day coming up. Why not do something colorful for your better half, best friend, who ever you think need some tender attention… kick out the pink pastels and add some tropical notes, some hot, sweet, something new. No starters or main courses, skip dessert, make it easy: make some fruity cocktails (and you can make them super fruity with no alcohol).
#1 it’s a Singapore Sling turned tropical, or “made more tropical” with the addition of the papaya (the seeds are edible and will lend a peppery bite—totally up to you— take it or leave it) and some Serrano chilies for heat. I don’t know if the Long Bar at “Raffles Hotel” in Singapore would add Papaya & Serrano Sling to their list? Probably not! But I like this version, and I can feel a bit of peanut peels crunching under my feet while sipping it… And since my husband and I went there on our honeymoon this drink will be our 2014 Valentine cocktail.
#2 is full of blood orange against basil and it becomes the margarita meets French kiss cocktail wauuu… what a nice combination…
#3 is a very diffenrent cocktail where east meets west – a vodka chiller with dragon fruit plus melon and rosemary! Surprisingly good.

a post all about paper straws in yummi colors… because they taste like old times – granny’s home made cookies and strawberry limonade and it calls for bare feet in the grass and long summerdays… mmmm… so nice – the summer holidays are just around the corner. Enjoy the paper straws at OhLaLa Papergoods on etsy.

Frankly: I hate January. Which makes me a huge fan of any suggestions to get this dull cold month a tiny more bright, exciting and yummi. Eat dessert first or eat more desserts (the healthy kind – packed with vitamins and colors of course!) I’m all in! And enjoy this blog by Garance Doré – so very fine.
