The sun struggled mightily this morning trying to penetrate the thick fog that had blanketed Milton this morning. It did make for a nice and cool run in the hills though…
Out with Sharmila for our usual Sunday evening date night. Watching the Cowboys play Saints. We are at a different bar than our usual one today. Met the bartender at the new bar. I was exchanging notes about making cocktails with him.
Then I ordered my drink. It has been a cold, cloudy, dreary day. Thought I would get going with a Bourbon. The following conversation took place with Jay (the aforementioned bartender):
“Four Roses. Single Barrel”
“With a splash of Sprite”
“Four cubes. Wash. Don’t pour.”
And then as Jay walked away, he looked at Sharmila and said “The man knows how to take his Bourbon”.
Sharmila, completed unimpressed and accusing me of showing off (which was totally true 🙂 ) asked me “Bolbo okey baaritey haath diye posto bhaath mekhey khao?” (“Shall I tell him that you mush your rice and curry with your hands at home and then eat with your fingers?”) 🙂
Nothing like a wife to burst your pretentious sophistication bubble 🙂
… Time to read up on more cocktails!!!
Pomegranate liqueur, ginger ale, lemon juice and mint leaves.
Not the best drink for a cloudy and rainy day like today but Sharmila uprooted a fast growing mint plant this morning and I had to make good use of all those mint leaves!
Last night, tried some pyro-technics while making a cocktail….
Once again the Bengali ladies outnumbered the menfolk. Although, the men decidedly had the more colorful running shirts on 🙂
Gin, Drambuie, lemon juice, lime juice topped up with club soda…
I was trying to capture Niki’s pictures as we waited for the fireworks of Hibachi cooking up start. She immediately snatched my phone away saying “No paparazzi please! Although my hair does look good tonite”!!!
Drambuie, tequila, triple sec, lemon juice, Angostura bitters and fine sugar…
Now that authorities have taken most of those sarees from her, she looks much thinner 🙂
Not to speak of the 750 pairs of shoes they are going to take away. She will be much shorter too 🙂
