As a warm welcome to actual winter here come the final three GOT-drinks
Introducing this week: The “Tyrion”, the “Sansa” and the “Milk of the Poppy” Continue reading GOT Part 2/3, “I drink and I know things.”
Imagine this: It’s a hot day outside (and – if you are particularly unlucky – a hot day inside), it’s been a long and dreadful day at the office, you’re all hot and the clothes stick to your skin while you feel the sweat running down your back. Actually, at the moment little imagination is needed. So this is when my inner child would put simply pout and say: “I want ice cream!!”. My adult (:D yeah, let’s pretend for a moment) self would rather go for a cocktail. So what to do? I’ll tell you….
Watermelon season is here! Yummy, refreshing and even figure friendly (not just the calorie count – those things are heavy ;))! And they look cool too!
You can obviously keep it simple and just eat the thing. Or wear it. But there are many more ways to enjoy this giant and gorgeous piece of fruit!
Yes, I know – that’s not very nice of me. Of course we all know Hugo!
Elderflower, soda, some bubbly, some mint leaves, a little lime if you like – voilà! Hugo ticks all the boxes of a refreshing summer drink. Ever since about a decade ago there has been no summer without him. He’s this unobtrusive, tasty and delightful companion and – at the same time – the ultimate wingman for elderflower beverages.
This is a tribute to two drinks that have never once let me down thus far. To me they are the drink equivalent of spaghetti with meatballs. Simple, easy to make and yet never boring. Fun and zesty, but not overwhelmingly sweet. What I like about them is that they are in no way heavy but rather refreshing – perfect for a barbecue, a board game night or even brunch. And they look pretty!
Last summer the Moscow Mule had gotten a lot of attention. Also by yours truly. And I do not see why this would be a one summer fad. This drink is much too refreshing and delicious for that!
