Smoothies make me heave, but thick milk shakes are fine. I suppose it's the nanas

I have the same reaction to bananas. Even the smell of them makes me feel unwell. Smoothies are great, but being that I live in a banana growing state, they're in everything (cakes, muffins, even yoghurt D:) so I have to ask bemused cafe/shop staff. When I explain why, they're quite willing to accommodate!

I have a gag reflex to fruit nectars, and I suspect smoothies, I like the taste, just the texture makes me want to throw up.

Today I'm doing something I usually don't do, I'm drinking mass produced Aussie beer. Carlton Draught to be exact.

It tastes like chemical water compared to most other beers but after working in the garden out in the sun today, it kind of hits the spot... which is all I ask.

... I'm going to be cranky and bitch about websites inventing drinks requiring silly esoteric ingredients. I mean I'd be happy to try some silly Gin Blossom (in celebration of Iron Lady's Oscar nomination) recipe if it were available in the bar - but because you just invented this recipe I can't. Really can't see myself going out and buying a bottle of Elderberry Liqueur just to try .5 of an oz in this ONE recipe. Not to mention the Lilet Blanc and the orange blossom water ... sheesh!

The "Gin Blossom" cocktail inspired by the nominated film, The Iron Lady

1.25oz London dry gin
.75oz Lillet Blanc
.5oz St Germain Elderflower liqueur

First add ice and water to chill classic champagne coup, next add all components into shaker tin, add ice and stir to chill. Discard ice and water in glass, garnish glass with two “spritz” of orange blossom water, next strain contents of shaker tin into chilled glass, garnish with flamed orange zest.

Soooooooooooo I guess it's gonna be the Bourbon and Chamomile Juleps instead ... at least Green Chartreuse I actually HAVE and use

The "Bourbon and Chamomile Julep" inspired by the nominated film, The Help

2oz bourbon
1.5oz chamomile syrup
.25oz green Chartreuse

In shaker tin, place all ingredients, and stir, in separate cup (preferably made of pewter) fill with crushed ice, next strain all components over crushed ice, garnish with a generous portion of fresh mint.

(quits being cranky and goes back to planning an Oscar party menu - hate the Oscars, love the excuse to plan a dinner ....)

I cooked yesterday's corned beef in Guinness. Which means I have a few bottles left for today.

Sicilian Lemonade, how that differs from ordinary lemonade I don't know, but it is refreshing.

Twinings Everyday, and lots of it. Brain fuel of the best kind.
