Tequila Sunrise!


One Tequila. Two Tequila.. Three Tequila... Floor!  

Har alltid vært glad i drinker, cider og likører ~ mye heller det enn øl.. Baileys er favoritten, Bloody Mary og friske citrus drinker. Om jeg drikker øl, er det gjerne Heineken, Carlsberg, Sol eller Corona med en lime oppi! Så jeg har et lite men godt utvalg av diverse flasker i barskapet for å mikse til med :)

Tequila Sunrise er både en klassisk drink og navnet på en god gammel film med Mel Gibson, Kurt Russel and Michelle Pfeiffer. Et par år etter filmen kom ut var jeg på ferietur på Gran Canaria med faren min, var vel sånn cirka 14 år da, og fikk min aller første drink ~ en (ganske svak) Tequila Sunrise med mini-paraply og stjerneskudd ;) Den har vært en favoritt siden ♥ Smaker av gode minner..  Flere gode 80'talls drinker med oppskrifter på her!

Ikke bare minner fra 80'tallet i denne bloggposten, har også lagd et kort med et motiv fra SSD, og jeg klarte den tabben å fargelegge kirsebæret grønt!! Tenkte nok på Bloody Mary med oliven først ~ og så malte jeg isteden drinken om til appelsinjuice med grenadine og tequila.. oppdaget ikke det grønne kirsebæret før jeg hadde tatt de første bildene! LOL sånn kan det gå.. Tok en rød distress marker over bæret, og med litt rød stickles ser ingen feilen.. bortsett fra at jeg viser det her.. ;) 
 Og er det ikke en fantastisk sizzix die jeg har fått meg, som kutter et slikt kort som dette? Så kjapt å lage ~ med flott resultat!

I have always been fond of cocktails. Would much rather mixing drinks than a pint of beer! Baileys is my favourite, and Bloody Mary's ~ and any kinda citrus sort of drink. If I drink beer, I am very picky, like Heineken, Carlsberg, Sol or Corona with a wedge of lime in it.. So I keep a good stock of misc. bottles in my little bar-cabinet :)

Tequila Sunrise is both a classic drink and the name of a good old movie from the late 80's starring Mel Gibson, Michelle Pfeiffer and Kurt Russel. A couple years after the movie (I was about 14 years old) me and my dad was on vacation on Gran Canaria, and I got my very first 'grown-up-drink', a Tequila Sunrise (very weak though) with a mini umbrella and sparkler! It's been a favourite ever since. Tastes like good memories ♥ 

Found this cool website ~ Drinks Popular in the 80's, yey!

It's not just reminiscing in this post, I also have a card to show, as well as showing you my olive-mistake.. (see further up). I colored over the green with a red distress marker, and added red stickles to it ~ noone but you know it looked like an olive before.. LOL ;)

Isn't this a fab folding technique? And SUPER easy it was ~ really! It's all done by one sizzix die! How cool is that, didn't even have to measure and stress about cutting and scorelines, it's just one pass through the BigShot, and fold = Done! Well, almost.. Had to decorate it too ofcourse :P (video by the designer Lori Whitlock)
