new drink

Citric Halogen, seen from below because I only have a scanner I just made this up:

Citric Halogen--
2 parts orange juice (no pulp)
1 part lemonade
1/2 part vodka
1/2 part lime juice

In a tall glass, pour vodka, then orange juice, then lemonade, and lastly lime juice. Stir with Mind Bullets.

Rating (1 to 4):
Tastiness: 4
Drunkness: 2
Preptime: 1
Other: Tangy, sweet, and hard to taste the liqour. Good for people who like margaritas and daquiris.

Super bonus post!

noble pink I made this for a contest on Joystiq, unfortunately I didn't win. It would have been a lot better if I'd had more time, unfortunately work sucks and is, in fact, a bitch. As it stands, all I came up with was a punchline. Meh, winning is for losers, anyway. Posted by Picasa

"A snack for nights"

Mmmm I just got in from picking up Amanda's Japanese conversation partner and our friend Aya from the airport. She had been visiting her family in Hamamatsu and brought back some Unagi Pie, a local specialty. It came in a really pretty box, and the cover states that it is "a snack for nights." It looks really tasty and is a very thoughtful gift, I think. I'm going to save it and try some with Amanda when she gets back on Friday.
For those of us unfortunate enough to know, I took the liberty of looking up some information about the product from this site:
Unagi Pie is a specialty of Hamamatsu,
the largest city in Shizuoka. Nearby
Lake Hamana is famous for eel farming.
Here is a description of Unagi Pie
from the Hamamatsu website:"Unagi Pie""To
satisfy your sweet tooth, try Unagi
Pie, cookies made with fresh butter with
crushed eel bones, eel extract, or
garlic mixed in. It's the most popular
souvenir from Hamamatsu. It is known
as a night snack. It doesn't taste like
eels so people who cannot eat eels can
eat it."


So there you have it: eel pastry. I am seriously very excited about this ^.^
