Hey, drink responsibly! We’re all more isolated which can make alcohol seem like a fun thing to do, just be cautious. Look I know it might sound condescending or like I’m your mother but if you have any problems or even if this post seems too seducing for you, I suggest going here.
I wanted to take a breather from beauty stuff and seeing as we have terrible weather for photography for food (like my food photography is great on here anyway) I thought let’s make some drinks.
So the search was on for some drinks that 1- we like and 2- don’t have many ingredients, since this isn’t a boozy place and I don’t want numerous bottles collecting dust.
Then I remembered that a few weeks ago in my recommended on YouTube, we watched this Epicurious video on how to mix every cocktail and two things emerged while watching it-
- The Evil Assistant hasn’t had many cocktails, if any.
- Even though it isn’t a cocktail, I really wanted a mimosa. It was 10pm at night.
From us to you, we wanted to wish all of you a happy Halloween! We hope you enjoyed all of our posts, I’m so damn tired now and if I see another pumpkin anything, I’m going to puke.
Before we take a week break to get caught up on some things, let’s christen this budget Barbie camper of a month with some Shirley Devil Temples!
Keeping your Shirley Temple’s grenadine red is awesome and Halloweeny, but since we’ve been making things black we might as well make the grenadine black too!
Get your drinkware and pour whatever soda you wish; it’s usually a lemon-lime soda, 7-Up or Mountain Dew, however, we had a can of Solo and some lemon lime & bitters chilling in the back of the fridge so.. waste not, want not.
Pour syrup into your glasses slowly then add a squeeze or two of black gel food colouring or to your liking. As it swirls round-and-round it darkens, taking on a purple or green colour!
We really hope you have a happy and safe Halloween, thank you so much for popping around and we’ll see you next week when I come out of Halloween-coma!
This summer I wanted to try to drastically cut down the number of fizzy drinks in favour of something either more water-like or perhaps make my own refreshing drinks. So for the past few weeks, I’ve been looking at various recipes to quench that thirst*
After a lot of researching I decided to make some berry syrups in three slightly different ways and, hopefully, you’ll love them as much as I do.
It’s come to that magical time of year where we buy heaps of candy and hand it out to each other and not the neighbourhood kids because we’re the witches of our area.
We hope you enjoyed Halloween month! We’re going to go on a little two week hiatus to tie up some loose ends before the end of the year so we should be back mid-November but to keep up to date, make sure you follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Before we go we’ll leave you with some glow-in-the-dark drinks!
The hardest thing to acquire is most likely the black light bulb and a light source to put it in, thankfully Bunnings had one that fit a lamp we had in the house. Next, you need tonic water that has quinine in it as that’s what gives tonic water its glow (also doesn’t hurt to check to see what is the best tonic water out there like this bartending site I went to see what to get).
After that, you just get something for flavouring which can be fruit or a sachet.
I decided for photography purposes to keep flavouring out but put some pomegranate arils to make it look cool along with our super-cute Ghostface ice cubes!
I’m so happy with how they turned out! While finding a lightbulb to fit a light source might not make it the easiest and cheapest thing to do, it definitely makes things fun- and I say this after The Evil Assistant and I stared at all the blackheads we had on our face!
So I hope you enjoy the last little remnants of Halloween, we hope to be back in two weeks, until then use sunscreen and stay safe!
If there’s one thing that having an autoimmune and an inflammatory disease has taught me is that eating and drinking the right things is a pain in the ass. Royally. I can’t sugar-coat it in any way- I can’t put any sugar on it at all because it’s horrible for us (get it? Boom tsss.).
Terrible puns aside, I do try to get at least one juice in a day. Of course that goal doesn’t happen most days, but having one does get me mentally and physically back on track with what I want my health goals to be.
Before I tell you the components of this juice, I want to tell you it’s completely customisable and the ingredients I use these ingredients because they have great properties that help promote a healthy tum, low on sugar, anti-inflammatory but actually tasted great. No, I don’t want bloody beetroot juice in my drink, I can’t eat celery and for the love of all things holy, get it away from me.
