Came up with this cocktail hour offering – attempting to match the color newly acquired Nantucket Reds® from Murray’s. Later this weekend I’ll put the kit on a model it all for ya!
Here are the mixology instructions:
In a shaker half filled with ice
2 oz of your favorite vodka
2 oz of cranberry-pomegranate juice
1 oz of orange juice (not from concentrate)
Squeeze of a wedge of lime
Shake and pour into a nice crystal beverage glass or martini glass
Note: This beverage is nice but a tad tart – some folks probably like it that way. You might consider adding ½ oz. of simple syrup to take the bite off.
2 cups of water
2 cups of sugar
Heat to a boil and all sugar granules are dissolved and then let it cool. Keeps in the refrigerator forever.
You can take the word “sharp” to mean a lot of things. In this case I’m applying to the crispness of a very cool automobile… My love of TR6s is enhanced by this photo. For starters I love the color! I love the clean surface of green with the saddle interior and the snap of those red-line tires. Like a drive on a crisp autumn morning this TR6 has it all!
I did some playing with the sharpening tool in Adobe Elements – to the point where I think you could put your fingers into the tread of the tires.
Word has it, that if you enter here for the evening’s entertainment, you’ll come out a whole different person!
TooJay’s Gourmet Deli is a wonderful Jewish Deli-Restaurant in Central Florida. Love the potato pancakes, love the corned beef sandwiches. Breakfast and brunch are crowded for a good reason – it’s wonderful!
These Chevys were clean and lean. Great looking cars and fun to watch and remember past times and think about who had this car when you were a kid, or a young adult – or “My Dad had one of these!”
I rendered these in “grunge” – i thought it was the best fit.
Over the past couple of weeks a took a couple hundred photos, but didn’t have much time to work with them, post-processing and so on. Next week proves to just as busy, I can’t seem to breath Monday thru Friday. Living for the weekends here! I’m in one of those situations where I can’t relax. I have a pile of books I want to read, but I can’t relax enough to read even five pages. I have three high-profile projects, and I have to keep my wits about me. I wish I could retire, but that’s just not in the cards right now.
