Don’s new favorite drink which is inspired by the Tequila sunrise.

Cut half a lime in wedges and muddle in bottom of a Collins glass (tall glass). Add 1 oz Patron Citronge (or other orange liqueur) and 1 1/2 oz Tequila. Fill glass with ice, add orange juice until glass is full. Stir. Add a tiny bit of grenadine, just to color the very bottom. Do not stir again!

Caipirinha

Caipirinha

This is my new favorite drink, soooo good and so simple. This is the recipe from the bottle (tip, recipes on product labels are usually great!).
Cut ends off a lime, cut into pieces and muddle in bottom of tumbler with 2 tbsp cane sugar (I use the raw, brown kind). Add 1 1/2 oz of Cachaca (or more) and plenty of ice and stir. Easy as pie. I used Ypioca brand Cachaca. I have also added mint. Yum!

Gael Faye

So here I am looking for Faye, the Swedish singer. She was at SXSW but we left before she came on so I wanted to see what I missed. Turns out she is a good singer but not my genre. This guy is right up my alley though and boy can he rap fast in French. Who knew French rap could be good!
