Cocktail of the day
Today, I will share a classic sparkling wine cocktail with you.
The name is Black Velvet (Чёрный Бархат).
1 part cold dark strong beer
1 part cold dry (or brut) sparkling wine

Pour the ingredients into a champange flute glass, beer first, sparkling wine layered over. The wine will go under and make a thin layer on the bottom, the rest will mix through the drink. Pour the champange wine on the wall of the glass (or with a spoon - if you are lame like that) to keep the beer foam intact. Drink slowly, enjoy the taste.

Last night I did this with cold Murphy's dark beer and semi-cold semi-sweet Sovetskoe Shampanskoe. The mix of two drinks was surprisingly good-tasting. I don't like dark beer, and you can't drink and enjoy the Sovetskoe brand in the same time - but this mix proved to be really good.

Best results could be achieved if you use Guiness and pour any kind of Brut over it. You could use a more expensive wine brand (a champange for example) for a more exclusive taste, but do that only if you think you will taste the difference

There is also a variation when you pour a sweeter sparkling wine over a light beer. The name would be Marshall. I haven't tried this, but if I were to make it, I'd use the lightest beer I can find (no bitter at all) and an Asti. Enjoy!

Tonight: Piknik concert at the Tochka club. Got to be good. We got a table this time too, so we'll listen rich pig style. :)

Silly girl, my international calling card ran out. Remember? :)
I will talk to them in person soon.
Are you going to meet me at the Airport? Please? Pretty please? :)
If you are going to be at Norway, where am I going to live? Remember, my dorm only becomes available on the 18 and I need a place to crash until then. So I do hope I'll see you there. Otherwise - why am I flying in early?

a) I have no idea of why you are flying in early, when I am not leaving until september 2 myself and have ample time to hang out at your lund place
b) do not know about airport, but I think nicole & andrew may fetch you (they do live 160 SEK and 2 hours closer)
c) IF I am going to norway, I am SURE you can stay on their futon for a day or so (I'll be coming back from norway quite early)
d) If I do NOT go to norway, I may still have to ship you off on your own adventures now and then between aug 15 and 18, because I will be needing lots of latin time
e) it is going to be massive fun when you come! you and I are going to copenhagen friday 27 the entire day, btw. we will meet andrew & nicole around 1pm for lunch and play.
