Limoncello Gin Cocktail

Limoncello Gin Cocktail

I went through a phase in my life where I wanted everything to be white – pure, unblemished, perfect white. If I was to be honest, it was probably because I went through a difficult break up and wanted a new and clean slate. It’s strange how events like that change your perspective on life. Up to today, white is still my default colour of choice when picking out anything that comes in a variety of colours. Some say boring, I say… timeless classic. Will get back to you in 50 years to see if I am right!

I have never really done much black and white photography at all but I tried it out recently and have decided I quite like the look of it! I bought some Limoncello for a future project and decided to make a cocktail. It was delicious – if you have the ingredients handy I highly recommend it.

World Gin Day

Hello everyone! I was informed early this morning that it is World Gin Day and decided to celebrate with some Hendrick’s Gin with my housemate. We got it very inexpensively at Malaysia’s duty free and today felt like an apt day to try it out.

ImageRecipe as follows:

1 shot gin
1 shot grenadine
Tonic water to top up.

It really was a simple case of eyeballing gin, grenadine and topping it up with tonic water. Absolutely delicious! I garnished it with a slice of Pink Lady apple.

Passionfruit Cocktail

It’s unseasonably hot in Melbourne now – today is forecasted to hit a top of 30 Celcius, which is pretty much like a summer day. After my morning 10 minute yoga session (that’s the most that I can tolerate at the moment before getting sick of it), I felt so warm I decided to make a cocktail. Which is very unusual for me because I don’t usually like drinking.

Passionfruit, soda water and a splash of Cointreau, topped with the last of my earl grey passionfruit macarons. Yum.
