Cocktail Recipe: Frozen Mudslide

Cocktail Recipe: Frozen Mudslide

 This one is a bit of a favourite of mine when I am in TGI Fridays.
The Frozen Mudslide.
It’s so yummy so
BE CAREFUL it’s way to easy to drink.

4 cups of crushed ice
2 jiggers of vodka
2 jiggers of Irish cream liquer
2 jiggers of coffee flavoured liquer
2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup
1/2 cup of whipped cream

Blend the crushed ice, vodka, and liquers in a blender. 
Drizzle in the chocolate syrup & blend till smooth.
Pour into glasses and drizzle in whipped cream.

YUMMY.
I hear a jigger is like a shot or like 1.5 liquid ounces.
I also hear that replacing the ice with vanilla ice cream makes for a nice time.

Enjoy.

Food Cravings.

Food Cravings.

I’m utterly craving Cortina’s.
They do amazing Tokyo Iced Tea Cocktails.

Which I have kindly provided a recipe for (:
1 oz vodka
1 oz gin
1 oz rum
1 oz tequila
2 oz kiwi liqueur
1 oz sugar syrup
1 oz lemon and lime soda (7 up, sprite)

You basically mix all the alcohol together, add the sugar syrup, ice and lemon and lime soda to taste.
Stir it and serve in a Collins glass.
An ounce is about 1 to 1.5 shots. Whatever your preference I guess. 
That’s a Collins glass.
And the finished thing!

Enjoy making these on those hot days we seem to be getting.

Fieldwork!

Fieldwork!

So today I went on my fieldwork for my Geographic Research Techniques module. 
I didn’t know what to expect from it. I just knew alot of time would be spent in the docklands are of the city. 
The docklands are actually a really nice area, especially the south dock area. 
The Bórd Gáis Energy Theatre is there along with a variety of restaurants and bars.
It has a very London feel to it. TBH I wouldn’t mind living in an apartment there. 
There was even a random area with rolling (tiny) hills and palm trees surrounding an old chimney.
I took some pictures, Check them out!!
