Tuesday Tipple

I am starting to enjoy this time off, no going back to work until 31 January for me! All that ironing has really made me work up a thirst...

Since the rain set in this morning, and we have quite a bit of surface flooding in our road I thought I should whip up a Hurricane 2. This is a spicy evening cocktail...

3/4  ounce Cognac
2 tsp Pernod
2 tsp Vodka
ice

Shake all ingredients together in the shaker and strain into a glass. I'd use a coicktail glass with the shorter stem, and kick back and listen to this....before mixing yourself another one. You deserve it!

That sounds like it might put the wind up me good and proper!

Funny it should include pernod as a group of us were sat at the ski club on Sunday morning talking about teenage experiences we had had with pernod. It seemed that everyone had had one!!

Such a wonderful long holiday. Sounds fabulous.

I am on cloud 9 at the moment - have been for weeks, glad to see someone else is up here too!!

Yah, baby. Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. I want a dress like hers with all the fringe to wear to our BrO's birthday party. If I'm able to stagger over there after that potent brew you've mixed up for us here.

WV: uncothed. So far I have a' my cothes on! But the party's young...

Ahem ! Ahem !

We're in trouble if she gets her teeth out and her cothes off !

But my goodness, what I meant to say is that drink, yikes, sounds like something to remove paint with ! Like something that could put hair on a guys chest if he needed more ! Like something that could set false teeth to clacking madly ! The key to unlock Pandorra's box ! The seed to set the clouds pouring ! The thunder to wake the ancient gods ! The stuff to pour down the subject's throat at an exorcism ! Should have a label on it saying, WARNING, HIGHLY FLAMMABLE ! Like it could stand up and recite philosophy all by itself... phew, just the odors of it had me soliloquizing...

WV : troxstr... as in, that stuff'll knock off your soxstrs and have you all hot to troxstr...

(must be getting near the full moon, in fact, I think the full moon is my birthday present tomorrow ! Yiiippppeee- eeee- aaaayyyy - yyyaaaaaayyyyyyyy !)

Steve - I hope that your 'good and proper' is nicely winded!

rb-am so happy for you! It had been ages since I had a go at Pernod so enjoyed it. Can't believe you're skiing, we're sweating!!

kj-lovely to have you drop by,, drink or not! I can make you a nice cuppa tea?

Louciao-oh, glad you could make it, and with your teeth in too! Yup, we should totally get flashed up and jive on over to BrOwen's place and get some Raspberry Chocolate cake before its all disappears down his Toady wee gullet. Let's have a drink while we get changed...

Owen-My, My, I don't think this is the first bar you have stopped at tonight eh? Soliloquizing? Phew, major word Birthday Boy! We even had an earthquake in your honour today, just for a chnage. ;-)

Cognacpernodvodka & ice? You gotta be kidding me! What are you guys on down there?! Buy yourself a 'still' off Ebay and grow your own moonshine.

Tell Louciao she can have my collection of Sharon Jones dresses if she wants. I'm bored with them now. I just dont get the attention in the street anymore.
