I’m making some right now!
(but I’m not following this recipe)
Cook Time: 18 hours
Total Time: 18 hours
Yield: 4 cups
4 cups sheep’s milk or cow’s milk (whole)
1 5-gram package kefir starter culture or 2 cups of kefir (starter culture can be found online or at health food stores)
Heat the milk in a sauce pan until the surface just begins to foam, stirring often so that it doesn’t scald.
Remove from the heat and let cool to below 117 degrees F.
In a bowl, combine the starter culture with 1 cup of the milk and whisk together. Then whisk in the remaining milk.
Lade the mixture into glass jars with sealable lids. Seal the lids loosely, not air tight.
Place the jar on a mantle or another ledge of your choosing and watch the change slowly begin to happen. Time and temperature affect thickness and flavor of kefir. In warmer temperatures it may be ready to drink in 18 hours, in cooler temperatures it will take longer. Left too long at room temperature it will turn cheesy and sour, so finding the right amount of time is key. It should be creamy, like a drinkable yogurt, thicker than milk, with a sour perfume. Shake it well and refrigerate it once it has reached this pivotal state to slow down the culture. It can be store in the refrigerator for 12 months, and longer in the freezer.11 months ago

online, then promptly lost it again before I could gather the recipe for what it actually was! Alas, I found it again! It is a cocktail formulated for Cointreau by the inimitable Dita Von Teese*! (But of course!) Recipe:
4 cl (1 1/2oz) Cointreau
2 cl (3/4oz) Apple juice
1,5 cl (1/2oz) Monin violet syrup
1,5 cl (1/2oz) Fresh lemon juice
Frost ginger around the rim of the glass
If you go to the Cointreau website theres more, but you have to be 21 to enter; the combination of a burlesque dancer and liquor, I guess…....

I was reminded of some personality flaws that I need to work on. Big time. So, in honor of that, I asked Google images to pour me something STRONG!!
Here’s what I got
If there is one thing that represents well the Brazilian soul and culture, this thing is our most known drink: caipirinha! There is nothing really special in the recipe of this drink to make it so unique. You just need sugar, lemons, and cachaça and mix them, pressing all the ingredients with a wooden bat in a common glass or improvising somehow with clean hands.
It feels right to have a drink that’s mixed using a wooden bat!!!BH211 months ago
Watermelon-Lime Agua Fresca
serves 4 (fills one blender)
2 pounds seedless watermelon (1/8th of a good-size watermelon)
1 cup cold water
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 tablespoon simple syrup or agave nectar
Honeydew-Basil Agua Fresca
2 cups cold water
4 teaspoons lime juice
2 tablespoons basil-infused simple syrup or agave nectar
For the simple syrup: Mix 1/4 cup water with 1/4 cup sugar. Bring to boil over medium-low heat and simmer, without stirring, until all sugar is dissolved (about three minutes). Remove from heat, add 1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs (I used lemon basil for its fantastic citrus scent, but you could also use regular basil or mint). Let steep for 15 minutes until flavor has infused the syrup.
Blend all ingredients, adjusting sweetness as needed. Strain through a mesh strainer or cheesecloth (optional). Serve over ice.11 months ago
Country Time Lemonade is my summertime inspiration. (Or, to be more specific, Country Time Lemonade commercials) If I could, I’d live each day from June through September napping in hammocks, elegantly jumping into lakes, and swinging dreamily on tire swings. The funny thing is, I don’t really like lemonade. Country Time’s marketing is just THAT powerful. I buy powered lemonade (I don’t drink sugary drinks anymore, so I get a diet knockoff lemonade) every single summer and I dream of a simpler time as I sip it. Ridiculous? Yes. But it makes me happy, dammit! (The Guinness glass also makes me happy ;) 11 months ago
