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.

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.

Chocolate Brownies and Other Things

Woke up at 9am and very slowly started to think about what to bake for the day to bring to a friend’s place, where we were going to spend the afternoon together. After a failed macaron batch (don’t ask) I decided to opt for something simple and bake some brownies.

Recipe from here. My blog from a while back that I kinda abandoned after a few posts. Shame on me.

Anyway, drove out to Templestowe, where my friend was ready with my favourite things – coffee, stuffed baby peppers and… ham, cheese and tomato toasties.

This was the first time anyone had served up a Nespresso coffee for me so I was eager to try it out. It was a decent coffee, but I think I still prefer to get one from the cafe.

It was a pleasant day just hanging out with friends that ended with a beautiful sunset. I love this city.
