Thirsty Thursday

The new job has started off quite busy, have been around the South Island meeting and greeting which also means that I have tried a few beverages along the way. I have been to Hokitika, Timaru, Dunedin, Invercargill, Balclutha, Mossburn and even Queenstown!!  I'll have some photos of those places and visits shortly, but it's Thursday and my current vin de jour is Pinot Gris....but lets have a cocktail instead!


30ml Tequila
120ml orange juice
15ml Campari

Pour ingredients, one after the other, over ice into serving glass and 'down the hatch' and let's head off to the next destination...

Thirsty Thursday

There has been an increase in the wasp population down here; not sure exactly why but the boffins claim that we had a mild winter and this means the wasps weren't killed off with the cold. Anyway, I have certainly noticed more of them in the gardens around the city and definitely in our own 2 backyards!

It seems fitting therefore that this weeks drink is...


45ml brandy
15ml white creme de menthe

Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice, stir, then strain into serving glass. Down the hatch!

Thirsty Thursday

This is my second to last day in my current job. I have been here almost 17 years so am looking forward to new challenges with excitement but also a spot of awe as  to what they actually be. The daily reality of the written job description, as most of us know, can differ greatly.

I have next week off to just 'horse around' so I will have to pour myself one of these while I contemplate the future....feel free to grab a glass and join me!
