Tuesday Tipple

I am in the mood for something fabulous today, especially in honour of my cyber-sibling's success in the photographic world! So, since I am in the Southern Hemisphere and he is in the North, let's have something I have always wanted to see as well as drink...


NORTHERN LIGHT


3/4 ounce light rum


3/4 ounce triple sec (or Cointreau...special drink, remember!)


Sparkling wine (or Champagne, this is a special occasion after all - (push the boat out!) for topping up


1 piece of orange peel


and 1/2 slice of orange for garnishing.


Shake the rum and triple sec together, with ice, in the shaker and strain into the champagne flute. Top us with the bubbly of your choice and squeeze the orange peel over the drink. Perch the slice of orange on the rim of the glass (if you can be bothered 'cos by now you will just be wanting to get it down yer neck!!)


Then, stand facing France and shout loudly "Cheers, Owen!", altogether now 1...2....3

Cheers Owen! I think I really will have a go at this one since it is such a special toast. Now, eat your heart out Saj. Do you know that I am going to Paris to stay in the heart of the cultural bit? But since I will only be there for 24 hours I am not going to queue for the Louvre. I am going to get my art fix at Owen's exhibition!

PS do I face France across the Pacific Ocean in an easterly direction or across Asia in a westerly direction?

Oh Lady, I'm positively puce with envy!! Maybe my dear Blog Brother will give you a personal tour of his exhibits? (In the purest sense of course...ahem)As for which way to face...hm, as a person of short stature my recommendation would be to face where you can get the best view! :-)

You realize there'll be no living with him now. Which is okay, seeing as we're all continents apart.

I was about to have a drink when I played the video. I then had to lie down. Please give adequate warning in future.

Saj, ahem ! My goodness, I can see you've all been whooping it up over here, guy turns around for one second and all the bottles are empty and people are sprawled out on the floor... tish, tish...
