You will be thrilled to know that instead of encouraging you all to imbibe, I shall also be encouraging you to EAT something nice and nibbly to go with the Tipple.
I have a friend who works in an area concerning alcohol consumption rules and regs and I am sure she will be delighted with this innovation.
So, let's get crazy today. Let's have a.....
25 ml Vodka
25 ml Cointreau
25 ml lime juice cordial (if you like a really sour drink, just use real lime juice)
Put ice in a small tumbler and pour over the Vodka, Cointreau and lime juice cordial. Stir well and have a seat - then drink up!
Have some Devilled Brazils to go with it.
225g brazil nuts
10ml olive oil or corn oil
5 ml each dry mustard and paprika
5 ml each of celery salt and garlic salt.
Slice nuts fairly thickly (hard to slice 'em think anyway), fry gently in butter and oil for 3-4 minutes or until a pale golden colour turning them often. remove from pan, drain, and sprinkle with seasonings. Serve hot or cold 0- they're delicious either way!
And because I'm feeling mellow, we can cruise along with Otis! (Fill me up, Bar Keep!)
