Trashy-Healthy-Sweet: The Blueberry Weekend

IMG_2465

I’ve spent the past three months in a manic, non-stop whirlwind of thesis writing, clinical placement, cross country moves, exams, presentations, study, research & general complete and utter inability to sit down. It’s been insane, everyone. Really off the deep end of insane. But insanity drives creativity, as we all know. Prepare yourselves.

Pink on Paddy’s Day? LemonBerry GrownUp MilkShake Cupcakes

image

Alright. So I’ve seen the regulation flood of green cupcakes appearing in time for our country’s favourite ‘everybody go out and drink enough to make friends with the floor’ day. A lot of them look damn good – and I was even considering making my own take on green cake¬†as a comment on the day.

But then perverse instincts kicked in and I went off on a massive cocktail-inspired cake quest instead – hey, alcohol-inspired treats are still appropriate, right? I like to call ’em CupTails. I’m sure somebody has likely already thought of that, but I like it. It’s all catchy and stuff.

Go visit him!) …and the back shelves of one of the best health food stores in the world, Nature’s Gold in Greystones. I found their cordials, and took the cranberry stuff in stock home. Then all this happened.

Made in the name of Roday – the 8th of March, otherwise known as my birthday, International Women’s Day, Irish Pyjamas Day & (best of all) Bryan Cranston‘s birthday (hell yes) – this stuff is just lovely. Sweet, sour and zingy, very good to make and drink on the eve of a big night.

Angel’s Rinse Cocktail

image_1

The first of a backlog of cocktail recipes I’ve been fiddling with – everybody get excited! No better time to post these than a Saturday, too. I hope everybody enjoys, and/or tells me what they would improve. I am a total rank amateur in this particular field of the ingestible arts, so any and all words back to me are appreciated. I ought to mention, I get most of my cocktail-ish/adventurous alcohol from this wee place.
