cookingtaco: Adding blended up macadamia to my brownie mix. (Default)

So, yesterday was the 28th of October which is known in Greek as Όχι Day. I also handed in 300 and something pages of like 6 months work.

I wanted to drink something, so I looked what I had. Then I found some Metaxa brandy. I was informed of the Greek holiday, and decided to make a drink.

Όχι Day celebrates the day when the Greek prime minister during WW2, Metaxa, said "No" to the Axis powers. (It's a tad more complicated than that, but yeah, Greece said "Fuck you" and we were awesome)

Anyway, so I decided to go with what I knew. If something is very alcoholic and burns, add lemon and lime.

So yeah.

100 ml Metaxa brandy
2 lemons worth of juice
1 limes worth of juice
50 ml of lime cordial (maybe?)

Shake it over ice. The colder the better.

Add it to lemonade to the strength you want it at.

A potential innovation would be to add mint.

NEXT TIME!

Stay tuned as I attempt lemon oil today!

SHWAH!
