100 and more...

It's my 100th post...yay...when I started this blog in June I had no idea that I would meet so many great people, make new friends, get inspired, be crafty, design and print fabrics and even sell it...I would like to thank everyone for their friendship and tremendous support...and to celebrate I will give away a mystery package again. This time to the person who tells me their favourite summer drink and the recipe for it...remember that it is 40C degrees now. I'll pick a name on Sunday.

I'm also joining this club, not sure if I can keep up but I'll try.


around the corner from work

and these have gone to the shop today...

As a bartender, this one is right up my alley!

Right now, the favourite in the bar where I work is Tanqueray Gin, fresh lime, and San Pelligrino Pompelmo on ice. YUM.

Congrats on the 100th post! I look forward to reading the next 100!

100 is a good number. good job!
my favorite summer drink. cold water. but not too cold. or a good, cold beer. sometimes simple is best. i think.

SparklyGreenKnickers said...

I'm with Leslie - a crisp, cold beer (might even help me get to sleep! It's still 28 degrees just after midnight)

Or my current fave is Mint Julep Cordial from Beechworth :)

Happy 100th!

Mich said...

haha just iced tea!
ice water with tea bags and lemon and sugar!!
so refreshing

Leanne Graeff said...

This is my fav in the summer - it's called a Bay Breeze

1/2 cup pineapple juice
shot vodka
generous splash of cranberry juice - all over ice.

Yumm - it's 37 Degrees F today - not much in the mood for the bay breeze - an Irish Coffee is right for this weather...

PS - thanks for the note on my blog!! Congradulations on your 100th - I don't know how you do it .....

Congratulations! My fav summer drink is Pirate Punch (is even better when spoken with a priate accent). 1 shot spiced rum + equal mix of OJ and Sprite, fill the glass with rum, stir with your finger and wha-la the best summer cooler! Cheers -kb

Kloth & Bolt said...

umm...so i've obviously had a bit to much priate punch, should have said fill the glass with ice! -kb

Well done!

Our new fave summer drink is vanilla vodka, apple juice and fresh lime. So so yummy and refreshing, it's easy to 'accidently' drink the whole bottle!

Cheers to 100 more!

An English friend of mine who is here for Christmas introduced me to Elderflower Cordial. The recipe is easy - just pour from the bottle and add water and ice. That's about all the recipe making I can handle in this heat. Available from Simon Johnson Food Stores.

Love that little display outside the store.

congrats on the 100th post! and on your success over the past year. it is amazing the connections that can be made through the virtual world. sometimes it'd be nice to have the same in the "real" world too. :)

haha. i'm only a few months away from the legal drink age here in the US. to honor that, i'd say my favorite alcoholic drink is "sex on the beach" - 1.5 oz of peach schnapps, 1.5 oz vodka, 2 oz each of cranberry, orange and pineapple juice. i'd also add in some ice for the hot weather! my fave non-alcoholic drink would be juice squeeze! yum!

ShiriMe! said...

i also like a simple coke and rum. and of course add ice! :)

dizzyjadey said...

Well done on making your 100th post!

I don't have a recipe, but we skull down lots of lemon iced tea in this household. My fave is San Benedetto from our local italian grocer.

Rebecca said...

Hurrah for you! 100 posts is excellent - and for us too as we've had 100 lovely things to read about!! :) This is one of my favourite summer drinks but it's actually made up by my Mum so I can't claim it as my own recipe... She mixes in jug sparkling shiraz with fruit punch (the fruit juice mix you get in a carton/box - tropical flavour is nice) and lemonade with lots of ice and the essential ingredient - a shot of vodka. It's absolutley beautiful and refreshing too - just what you need for an Aussie summer! I loved your back to work pic - I am back on Monday and I think I might try and spruce up my workspace with some inspiration too. Thanks for your inspiring posts, your creations are gorgeous :) Rebecca

No name cant't remeber, but chuck some diced watermelon in the blender with a big shot of vodka and pour over ice,mmm yum. So summery

Jason said...

You know, I didn't think those colours would go togther, but after seeing your pillows the colours really do work.!

Pina said...

Congratulations on your no. 100 post!

My favorite summer drink is water (not cold) but sometimes I make myself a mixture of strawberry and banana juice. I pour some banana juice into a glass and then slowly pour strawberry juice onto that. Then I get two colored drink. If I want to indulge myself even more, then I put some cream on top of that.

I envy you those hot summer days. If I could send you some of the chilly weather we have, then you wouldn't need a summer drink at all! ;)

OOOOh it's hot there ahahahaha ! Here it's cold grey and rainy BUT there is always a good reason to drink (drums drums drums) THE perfect drink ever ! Few oranges ( 4 or 6 that have been in the fridge) ! You open them (sorry for the weird words as I'm a french speaker HAHAHA) and put the cutted piececs of them in a big bowl ! You add sugar and cinnamon. (just taste if you want more of this or that) You melt. You put in the fridge one night. You mix the all then add cold water like if you were making juice ;-) Then you add Disaronno -- how do you call that ? hum AH -> Amaretto ! And you mix it again !!! and add ice cubes !! Yummi yummi yummi delicious :-) Really refresh drink !!! Well it's not a Belgian drink but a really good one that can help to sing all niiiight, all night looooooong oh yeah Oh Night all niiiiight looooong LOL

Louise said...

Congratulations on your 100 posts!
My favourite summer drink is ice-tea. Simple, make a pot of tea, put lots of slices of lemons and oranges in the tea, lots and lots of ice cubes, stir all stuff and drink. Cheers!

sammyjo said...

Mine is very simple and very drinkable. A decent bottle of moscato - the D'Bortoli Emeri pink is only $12 and suits this perfectly. Quarter a fresh lime, squeeze the juice from it into a glass, toss the whole lime in and top with moscato - Delish!
