Is that just reflection on the side of the glass? Sure looks like a thin slice of slanina - which I think would go great in there. Bacon-tini.

I am officially thirsty!  ;D

OK folks! I've backed of these treacherous martini's a bit but now that my mini-vacation has begun I present to you what I call the BP. Chilled Sapphire (wet), a spicy shrimp and a blue-cheese stuffed olive:
I'll let your imagine percolate for a minute...



See the little Oil Slick? ...?


I am officially thirsty!  ;D

Behold the Akvatini:



Ice cold akvavit, garnish is some Norwegian gjetost cheese, an olive, and a chunk of suva govedina (Serbian dried/cured/smoked beef).  You know the garnishes didn't do much for the drink (not that akvavit needs any improvement!) but the salty snack at the end was delightful.

Maybe a slaninatini in the future, but I have to get a bottle of gin.  I could make one with slivo but that just seems wrong (and a waste of slivovitz!).

Pizza looks great.  ;)

How was the Bacon-tini? It looks mighty tasty!

Pizza was great, had leftovers for lunch today...I think I like that sausage (albanska sudzuk, or suxhuk, however one spells it, a dried, spicy albanian beef sausage) better cooked on pizza than served as a cold cut. 

The martini was good but I think I prefer dried beef (suva govedina) as a garnish.  The bacon was harder to eat as a long strip.

Didn't want to start a new thread - just I was online and one thing lead to another and I read....

While drinking one beer per day may improve your health, heavy drinking will not. In fact heavy drinking has the opposite effect. Heavy drinking is defined as more than 21 drinks per week for women and more than 35 drinks per week for men.

So, drink up! I think we're all a bit behind.

Interestingly enough, a recent study concluded that people who binge-drink frequently are overall healthier. Not causal, just correlated...
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I'm game for this.  Almost put some jalapenos in but all I have is the pickled slices...wondering what would be best for this.

I have some red Thai birdseye chilis but that kind of concentrated pain might overwhelm everything else.
