Long Island Iced Tea ; a sweet temptation

3 개의 댓글

Whenever I go to bar, I often order a Long Island Iced Tea. Because I can enjoy not only the sweetish flavor of tea but also a high alcohol concentration. So if you drink this cocktail, you can get both chances to have a lot of fun and a little bit relaxation with tipsiness.
Long Island Iced Tea was first served in the late 1970s by Robert Butts, a bartender at the Oak Beach Inn, in the Town of Babylon, Long Island, New York. Since the color of the cocktail looked like the color of the sunset at Long Island beach and it has tea flavor too, so the drink had the name, Long Island Iced Tea.
Although this sweet cocktail needs 5 different alcohol ingredients, it apparently deserves to be tried! Let's see the recipe.

▷ Ingredients
- 1/2 oz triple sec
- 1/2 oz light rum
- 1/2 oz gin
- 1/2 oz vodka
- 1/2 oz tequila
- 1 or 2 oz sour mix (if you don't have it, lemon juice is also okay)
- cola
- lemon wedge for garnish (Optional!)

▷ Direction

1. Pour the triple sec, light rum, gin, vodka, tequila and sour mix into a shaker with ice
2. Shake about 10 times
3. Pour the drink into a collins glass
4. Top the glass off with cola
5. Garnish with the lemon wedge

※ Caution: If you are a female beginner in alcohol, please be careful when you try this cocktail especially with a strange guy. The first taste is sweet and really good, but it may make you drunk a little when you finish it. So..Watch out for guys who suggest you to drink a Long Island Iced Tea at bar. He may be coming on you!

Chianti ; Beautiful Italian wine

0 개의 댓글

Last year, as I was staying in Rome, stopping by a restaurant to have some authentic Italian food and wine, I realized I had never given Chianti enough credit. While it doesn't have the deep profundity of Brunello, its high-class cousin to the south, there are a lot of beautiful, honest, unassuming wines made in some of the world's most beautiful hill country. 

Chianti is not so expensive wine compared to other wines from famous vineries. Despite its lack of deep aroma, Chianti has its own attraction. If you are looking for a good quality of exotic wine for reasonable price, pick up Chianti at market. It won't let you down.

Try this Spicy soup
This month has been mostly cold and wet–lots of rain, cloudy, and yucky. I feel moody when the sky is grey. On chilly and gloomy days, I usually make myself Tom Yum soup to lift my spirit. Nothing feels better than downing a bowl of piping hot, spicy, sour, and highly addictive Tom Yum soup…
Tom Yum is probably one of the most well-known dishes from Thailand. It’s uniquely Thai and has become so famous that they made a movie with the name “Tom Yum Goong.”

2 1/2 cups shrimp stock
10-12 shrimp or 8 oz (head-on and shell-on but chop the eyes part off. Devein if you wish)
3 tablespoons lime juice
6 bird’s eyes chilies (pounded)
3 slices galangal
6 kaffir lime leaves (bruised)
2 tablespoons
nam prik pao (Thai roasted chili paste)
2 teaspoons fish sauce or to taste
1 stalk lemongrass (use the white part only, pounded with a cleaver)
6 canned straw mushrooms / fresh oyster mushrooms / fresh or canned button mushrooms

1.In a pot, bring 3 cups of water to boil. Then add a big handful of shrimp/prawn heads.
2.Boil the shrimp head until the water turns slightly orange in color. Press the shrimp heads with spatula to extract the “goodies” from their heads. Let the stock reduce to slightly more than 2 1/2 cups.
3.Drain the shrimp stock and discard the shrimp heads.
4.Add lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, bird’s eye chilies, mushrooms, nam prik bao to the shrimp stock and bring it to boil. Add in the shrimp and fish sauce.
5.Add the lime juice (if you add lime juice too early, the soup might turn bitter). Boil until the shrimps are cooked, dish out and serve hot.
