Happy Sunday everyone! Today I have a classic highball that I have jazzed up a bit with some cranberry ginger ale to celebrate the fall season. This is very simple, just whiskey and ginger ale with a twist of lemon peel. The cranberry ginger ale really brightened things up. I really like the flavor it brings to the cocktail and how perfect it is for the season!
Recipe: 1 Cube of Ice
2 oz. Irish Whiskey (@tullamoredew)
Fill 8 oz. highball glass with ginger ale (@canadadrygingerale Cranberry Ginger Ale) or carbonated water. Add twist of lemon peel, if desired, and stir.
Canadian Thanksgiving approaches, and @canadadrygingerale makes a pretty decent cranberry gingerale to pair with your holiday meal. We always buy this during the holiday season, it's a family favourite.
Happy late #chinesenewyear everyone! We waited until tonight to have our special #chinese#dinner because Tuesday night was a school night and we are on a strict routine when we have to wake up for school and work the next morning. It was very pleasant tonight! We had #tangerinebeef made by ourselves using #flanksteak , a piece of #bao , two #springrolls and four #chicken#potstickers ! The rest of the fam had rice but I didn't because I absolutely cannot handle rice. Dessert was homemade #almondcookies with a #pig (because this year is the year of the pig) #darkchocolate#truffle that Mom and Dad bought from Corti Brothers in Sacramento when they were paying for our sandwiches. To go with theme I had a #canadadry#cranberrygingerale because it is #red , which is a color that goes nicely with the theme. We also used the big bottle of the Thai Kitchen sweet #chilisauce from Costco.
It's always so sad when the tree is taken out of the living room, when the neighborhood isn't lit up in red & green. When the radio plays the same old music it does the rest of the year, and when the jingle bells disappear from each commercial. As cheesy as it sounds, I do keep Christmas in my heart year-round. I will occasionally turn on a Christmas song when I'm feeling down, will look up Christmas-y recipes or diffuse "Christmas Spirit" to get the good vibes flowing. I will turn on a Hallmark Christmas movie just to get the warm fuzzies in the middle of June. Some find it annoying, and I find it as a release of some sort. So if you find random Christmas-grams throughout the year... that's why! 😜 #canadadry#cranberrygingerale#yesplease#holidaysareover#christmasinmyheart#yearround#untilnextyear
I'm making some great progress on my first ever sock. I'm probably annoying my family with "oooh look what it looks like now!" or "wow guys it's so much bigger take a look" when I've only added a couple more rows. Lol. I never thought I'd be able to grasp the ability to switch between kitting and purling in the same row but I'm doing it. Not at all perfectly (this is the prettier side of the two 😉😂) but I'm so proud of myself none the less. I'm having some red velvet cupcakes and cranberry ginger ale while I knit my socks and watch the hockey game. #goflamesgo#pmsfood#redvelvetcupcakes#cranberrygingerale#greensocks#op_knits
