Saw this gorgeous collection of photos & the recipie for Mai Tai's over at coco & kelly a few weeks ago & i thought id re-post it to get me (& you !) all in the spirit! Bring on the cocktails!!!
The Mai Tai
2 tablespoons light rum
2 tablespoons orange curacao
1/4 cup orange juice

1 dash simple syrup
1 tablespoon dark rum
mint, a pineapple slice, and a paper umbrella for garnish
Fill a glass with ice. Pour in light rum, orange curacao, orange juice, lime juice, orgeat, and simple syrup.
Then drizzle dark rum right on top. Garnish with mint, pineapple slice, and a paper umbrella for panache!
My other half mentioned the other day that i was a little bit fixated on the cocktails apsect of the trip..yeah?! so!?
After i posted this pic of my all time favorite kitchen a few weeks ago (which we all drooled over!) i have started to notice the appearance of 'Tiffany Blue' in kitchens more & more - I do have a bit of a soft spot for the old tiffany blue (& tiffany in general really).... i blame my grandmother for this! Actually one of the coolest things i got for my 21st (a while ago!) was a set of Tiffany poker cards from my godmother! Pretty cool huh! But ive never used them cause i dont want to ruin them! Anyway back to the kitchens!
If i could be a kitchen - this would be me!
This ones a bit yummy too. How cool are the cabinets!
Saw these goooorgeous new calling cards that Jen has in her shop at Made By Girl they only went up for sale yesterday! With my 'side work' increasing by the day i think i may just have to make a purchase :) I have always loved Jen's stuff & infact hers (along with apartment therapy) was one of the first blogs i ever discovered & inspired me to start my own! Plus you gotta admire a chick that has made such a successful business doing something she (& we) loves! aaahhh now i feel all inspired!
