Morning Vent, 11 January 2010

   Am I the only one driven to distraction by the use of search pop-ups on websites? In Saturday's gaming links, the Softpedia web link was loaded with Bing pop-up windows. It became a chore just to read the article. Douchebags.

    On Sunday, I finally got around to digging up the blender to make the homemade Irish Cream I blogged about at New Year's. It turned out to be no trouble at all to make. (The results of the tasting: It's not Bailey's, but it's not bad, totally drinkable. Tomorrow, I'll post how well it goes with butterscotch schnapps to make a "Buttery Nipple".) After blending the ingredients for about a minute, it looked and smelled like Irish Cream should.
    Reibo helped me by holding containers (and opening one really, really tightly sealed bottle!) while I poured. We left it in the fridge to get nice and cold until cocktail hour (after dinner). After we were done, he mentioned that I should see if someone had a recipe for homemade Tequila Rose. Hah! Here it is:

Things You'll Need:

  • 1 1/2 cups sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup strawberry syrup
  • 1/2 cup tequila


  1. Measure all ingredients into a blender.
  2. Blend until mixed smooth.
  3. Keep in a sealed bottles in the refrigerator.

    It doesn't get much simpler than that! We'll give that a try as soon as we pick up some Strawbery syrup. :D
