Bloody hell! Have you been to sea? We want drinks! ...and other things.
So CA, let's have my favorite summer drink, the Brazilian Bombshell.
Caution: If you make the following drink, you might end up stuck in a bucket! sidenote: I love this drink...my friends love this drink...my wife loves this drink...hopefully you'll love this drink.
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
3/4 fl oz (20ml) Rose's Lime Juice
1/4 cup (2 fl oz/60 ml) pineapple juice
3/4 fl oz (20 ml) cachaca
1 1/2 fl oz (45 ml) silver tequila
Chill a stemmed cocktail glass. Half-fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the lemon juice, lime juice, pineapple juice, cachaca and tequilla. Cover and shake vigourously about 40 times. Strain into the chilled glass and serve at once. Makes 1 kick ass cocktail.
Dive, dive, dive! Texel/Netherlands, June 16 2010 "The Zwitserleven Dutch Open Catamaran sailing 2010 had a rough start on Wednesday 16 June. The northeasterly wind increased to over 20 knots with high waves off the Texel beach. As a result, many sailors spent a lot of time swimming instead of sailing."
It's a hot day and I want to cool off. "That F18 cat sailing is a different game from helming a bizzare 90ft trimaran, as James Spithill (AUS) experienced today. The helmsman of BMW Oracle lost his balance while wiring on the run and he took a flyer."
