How is everyone’s Shark Week going so far? We can happily report that, despite having one shark or another on our tv screen for the lat 120 hours, we have not been bitten. Nor have we witnessed any shark-related weather phenomena (knock on wood). I guess you can say we’re just glad the sharks have stayed in the ocean where they belong!!
Speaking of oceans, you HAVE to try this drink that we found from Andrea Correale over at Elegant Affairs Caterers in New York. She’s catered for some of the biggest stars in the biz including Jimmy Fallon, Mariah Carey, Kevin Spacey and Liam Neeson!!!!
Ocean Blue is a tasty summer drink, made with Blue Curacao and vodka to mimic the color of the ocean. Fresh fruit adds a cool, refreshing touch that puts you right in the beach mindset, without having to expose yourself to the potential that a fame and flesh hungry shark will make his name by snacking on you!
Here’s the recipe – (Note: It calls for regular ice cubes, but if you add red food coloring to the tray, you can get a cool blood effect when the cubes melt. This might make your party less elegant though.)
