Homemade snacks of Tuscan prosciutto which would give some Parma hams a run for their lardo and brambly salt of the earth Sangiovese (amongst 9 other magical natty juices) by @sinefelle , a stone's throw from Florence in Scandicci. These makers are renegade wine heroes (a step above organic/biodynamic: spontaneous, wild and unfiltered) and are refreshing in a region full of extremely commercial wines with little grit and intention who lack the guts to experiment. Not a shabby Saturday bike ride with @girlinflorence@tracyrusso (oh and because it's Florence and we can't have nice things like not-falling-apart/unstolen bikes which can handle fun rides, we cheated the trek with @ebikesflorence 😂) #rawwine 🍇🐷🍷❤️
It’s mango season and it’s been getting pretty hot as Australia 🇦🇺 goes into summer. This calls for a tropical drink 😆
1 handful of fresh mango 😋
2 oz gold rum 🥃
1 oz fresh lime juice 🍋
1/2 oz chilli sugar syrup 🌶
1/2 oz orgeat 🍹
4 drops tiki bitters 🗿
4 drops hellfire bitters 🔥
Muddle the mango, add the other ingredients and shake with ice. Serve in double rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with mint and mango and add a couple dashes of hellfire bitters on top for fun 🌶 😬
Kind of like a spicy mango Mai Tai, the chilli adds some fire to the cool mango and the whole thing just works! 😄

Too excited for Portland so I’m reminiscing about my @cynargaritaville brothers until my 6 AM flight. Leave an emoji below if I’ll see you this week! 👋🏼❤️
(PS: sorry @theamazingspiderbrad I don’t know why you’re cropped out of this picture 😂)👋🏼
ON THE ROAD AGAIN
- 60ml @label5 Scotch
- 15ml Reynac Pineau Des Charentes Vieux
- 15ml Amaro CioCiaro
- 1/2 pipet @bittered_sling Plum & Rootbeer Bitters
- 2 mists @laphroaig Peated Whisky
Stir all ingredients (except for the mists) with plenty of ice. Take a prechilled coupe glass, mist it ONCE, then pour the drink and mist a second time.
Recently I had the amazing experience to visit my wedding venue for the second time in half a year.🤵👰 Not because I was getting married again (😅), but because Label 5 Whisky held a release party for their Limited Edition 'Street Art' Bottling! 🖌️ (Swipe to see some pictures I took) 🥃 We were served 5 cocktails, all inspired by a major city (London, Beirut, Brussels, Hong Kong & Mexico City) 🌏 where Label 5 had asked a renowned street artist to create 'locally rooted' artwork for their brand, calling this collection of work 'The Power of 5'.💪 During the event, Studio BamBam, a duo of graphic artists from my city were making live art and illustrations on canvas, boxes, bottles etc 😎.
At the end, we all received a giftbox containing a bottle of the Whisky, which I couldn't just leave untouched.🤷 So I stirred up a Black Manhattan-style cocktail, using Label 5 as a base and (in stead of Averna) a split modifier of Amaro CioCiaro and Reynac Vieux Pineau des Charentes.😍 Some bitters and Peated Whisky to round things up and you got a killer drink to sip on while the weather is getting colder!❄️ Drinksta, have a beautiful Sunday!
I recently enjoyed High Tea at @whotelbrisbane@whotels and WOW.
I have a couple of other pics from that day but this one I had to share!
This is the Bird in the hand, I won't score it as I didn't take notes on the day thanks to being so taken aback by the presentation! It did have vanilla beautiful notes but I enjoyed it more when I mixed the mint in.
Next time I head there I will make sure to have my proper camera and not my old broken phone 😂 if you do want to treat yourself for a few hours head to W and enjoy!
