Following from yesterday’s Mother’s Day Part 1 Gift series, here is the Netflorist Mother’s Day Part 2.  There were just so many beautiful gifts, I could not choose which I wanted of Mother’s Day.  Part 2 has a combination of alcoholic options, gifts and naturally flowers.  What I love about Netflorist is their personalizing options.   You can not only personalize gifts, but also whisky, wine and champagne.

It is nearly Mother’s Day again.  A day I look forward to with great pleasure. The one day I get to sleep late (sort of) and get coffee in bed.  The day that is just for me.  Birthdays are fun, but with people popping in for coffee, birthdays can be hard work.  That is why I love Mother’s Day.  I get to just relax.  The whole day.  Well, most of the day anyway.  In order to help my husband John (and a few others) with some Mother’s Day gift ideas, I put together a few beautiful items that I would not mind getting on this special day (hint hint John).

For the last 10 or more years during June, there is a Oyster, Wine & Food Festival in Johannesburg where  in excess of 60 000 oysters from Knysna gets consumed and appreciated together with a variety of other foods and wine.  It is always a very popular activity.  Out in the winter sunshine, with friends, good music, fun food, what more can you ask of in the perfect weekend.   But I have to admit something… when we taste oysters, we always take a small flask of Caol Ila 12 yo with us.  Nothing enhances the taste of fresh Knysna oysters better than this peaty smoky Islay dram.  It is total perfection.

Tired of G&T? 6 Different ways to drink Gin

6 Different ways to drink Gin G&T Header

Gin and Tonic is all the rage right now.  And I predict, for the foreseeable future, it will continue to grow.  Gin is great.  I love the taste of the juniper and angelica root.  There is something in my Dutch ancestry that finds these smells strangely comforting.  Might be that the smell remind me of my grandfathers beloved glass of jenever. What ever the reason, gin is here to stay and it is great.  Everywhere you see recipes for the perfect Gin and Tonic. But is tonic the only way to drink gin? Are there different ways to drink gin?

April and Easter is chocolate month. Chocolate bunnies, eggs, even chocolate chickens can be found in most of the shops.  Even in my house, there is chocolate everywhere.  I keep on finding lost (hidden) chocolate eggs in strange places.  I am not complaining.  My love for chocolate is well known… and this time of the year… It is a requirement to eat chocolate.  With all the chocolate around the house, I realized, I have not blogged about my favorite chocolate whisky – The Wemyss Malts Dark Chocolate Orange!
