Tuesday Tipple

Hoorah, it's Tipple Tuesday again. I am starting to think I might have to start a petition to get more Tuesdays in the working week, what do you think?


It has been raining here for the past 48 hours and some parts of the country are flooding. This morning the weather boffins are gleefully announcing the approach of a weather bomb, with more rain and high winds. Oh joy, at least it's during the week and not at the weekend when the kidlets and sconegrabbers are home from school! But that does bring me back to the order of the day, the Tipple.


I'm mixing us all a nice Blue Day (partly because it is very nice and partly because it goes with the music clip...), so get your taste buds out and put the rollers in your hair....


1 and 1/2 ounces of Vodka
3/4 ounce Blue Curacao
1 dash orange bitters
Garnish - slice of orange


Shake all the ingredients together, with ice, in a shaker and strain into the glass.  I'd use a champagne or cocktail glass. Perch the orange slice on the rim (unless you've been 'testing' the drink thus far, in which case just eat it!)


Now then, get your dancing shoes on while we whip back into the 80s in down-town New Zealand....

Impossible to put rollers on my head, but the music is great!

Hi Adrian, you're up early! Your hair looks fine without rollers anyway :-)

I will second the motion to add at least two more tuesdays to the week... although Lynne may want to up the ante to four or more...

Curacao ??? Sounds exotic... have to admit, I'm not even sure I've ever even tasted the stuff... that bright blue color always seemed a bit un-natural to me... but if you're vouching for it here Sis, and can assure me it has no strange chemicals in it that cause hallucinations or otherwise, well fill up the glass please, and cheers !

PS Hope the rain lets up... Poland is now underwater too...

See, there you go again putting horribly healthy stuff like oranges into it! I'll be a bloody vegan before you know it! hic!

Seems to me I've been having to tell myself, "It's just a blue day" a little too often of late, so it's good to have a drink to go along with them.

Clearly, Friday Saturday and Sunday are meant to be tippling days, so if we add Thursday in as a tippler that would give us Monday and Wednesday to recover. Pass the petition, please, and another flute of that blue stuff while you're at it. Ta.

Owen- hoorah, I knew I could rely on you to sign the petition! Still raining tho' and our front lawn is completely under water!

Steve- oh dear, if you do think you are what you eat you had best avoid certain foods...nuts for starters? :-)

Louciao-I like the way you're thinking here, sis. Here's your bucket o' blue...
