The Drinks Report: Lassi and books

On March 6, 2014 by millieepona

Hello!

First up on this week’s drinks report, mango lassi. For those of you who don’t know, lassi is an Indian yoghurt-based drink, the mango version of which is now almost widely available in the UK. Last night we went on a little work trip to Lucha Libre and I had a Mint and Mango Lassi with tequila in it. Tequila and I are not friends, but this drink might rekindle our relationship (for those of you reading who know how I react to tequila, be reassured that I didn’t fall down). This drink was delicious, creamy and just a tad alcoholic, and to be honest I really love any drink with a spring of mint in it.

As it’s World Book Day I also wanted to share some drinks related books that I love or would love to have. Infuse: Discover the World of Tea was a gift from Emily years ago, but I still like to flick through its pages every now and then. The innocent smoothie recipe book is a firm favourite as I love a good smoothie (another blog post about them will be coming soon) and this book has plenty of inspiration. I have occasionally lusted after the Savoy Cocktail Book, but I would also say that any cocktail book is an ideal 18th birthday gift (I received a tinned collection of recipe cards which served me well!), and for real World Book Day points it has to be Tequila Mockingbird. I will truly never stop laughing at this pun.

Today I would also recommend Carol Ann Duffy’s Teawhich so perfectly captures love in tiny rituals, and to remember what Hemingway said:

Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
