Speakin’ of Drinkin’

Seven Deadly Glasses by Hamilton Design are just… wow. I mean, really, those vessels are incredible. Price available on request? I’m not sure I want to know because, um, I might be really tempted. Click through to the second page to see not only the rest of the glassware but the case, as well. (Good thing I’ve sworn off superfluous purchases for the month!) (Link via Needcoffee.com)
Tomorrow, July 19th, is National Daiquiri Day. What’s your favorite flavor? Back home in Ponchatoula, of course, Strawberry reigns supreme but I had a yummy Mango Daiquiri last month at Red Lobster (of all places) that could stand-in quite nicely for some of the sub-par, mostly ice versions that abound. The key to the frozen daiquiri (which is what most of us are familiar with) is a high ratio of fruit to ice. Making sure all the ingredients are ice-cold before they go into the blender will also keep the mixture from becoming watered down too quickly (along with insulated cups!).

    Wow! I’m curious as to how you drink out of some of those glasses. I mean, the Envy glass has holes all around it. And Greed? You’d lose half your drink in the side horns.

    We definitely have to go out and celebrate National Daiquiri Day tomorrow, and my favorite is a banana daiquiri. (Unless you have everything we need at home, that is 😉 no need to go out at all then).

    I agree Spec. Those glasses are beautiful, but I would be afraid to spill all over.

    We are big daiquiri fans, and we lean towards the classics – fairly tart – like the Hemingway Daiquiri – white rum, lime juice, grapefruit juice, maraschino liqueur.
