Week 13 -52 Weeks of Cocktails - Chocolate Shot

This is suppose to be in a shot glass but it was a cold rainy night so we decided to all have hot chocolate with whipped cream and the adults add the cointreau.  Tasted like a orange chocolate ball you get at Christmas.   Yummy

Week 12 - 52 Weeks of Cocktails - Island Affair

My guinea pigs this week.  Hubby and I had friend from Canada visiting so we had a cocktail one afternoon.  It was tasty the only problem is that it called for coconut cream and well it got thick and chunky.  Tasted good but I think it should have been coconut milk maybe??   Learning.

Day 75 - Tree Frogs

I didn't realize there were so many varieties of tree frogs.  I just remember the bright green ones from Cobar.   Haven't seen any in Parkes yet but we have tonnes of these ones hanging around the water tank.  I think this is a Peron's Tree Frog or a Laughing Tree frog as it is commonly known as.

My mother in law gave me money to buy myself a birthday bouquet I finally got around to ordering myself one.   So I went all green so I could photograph green flowers for the next few days!!   Tara Jeane Coffee shop and florist in Parkes is wonderful.

Day 71 - Twisted Rivers Winery

It was Ladies Day Social at the Twisted Rivers Winery for Rio Tinto's spouses and female workers.   Lovely food and wine for 5 hours and only 30 minutes from town.   I think we may have to take some visitors to the open cellar when we get some.

Day 70 - Mint Seeds

My mint is blooming and spreading seeds.   I think something with mint in it is calling. 

Week 11 - 52 Weeks of Cocktails - Christmas Day Sunrise

I like tequila but this was way too much tequila.   3 shots of this in this drink.   I couldn't drink it is was way too much and not pleasant to drink.

Week 10 - 52 Weeks of Cocktails - Strawberry Sensation

Here is proof that I do not drink alone.   We had a dinner party on Saturday so I moved my cocktail day to Saturday instead of Thursday.  I made Strawberry Sensation for the ladies.  A nice light drink to sip in the Australian Sun.   Strawberry puree,  crushed ice, one shot of vodka and some white bubbly wine to top.
