Hi guys! We’re continuing our new summer series to bring you a nice summery cocktail and share some interesting links we’ve seen on the internet this week. It was another fun week!
This week, we dipped into our rum reservoirs, specifically using Koloa Rum that we got from our visit to the Koloa Rum Factory in Kauai, Hawaii. The classic rum cocktail is a rum and coke, but we have found that when you use a dark rum, it’s nice to mix it with a light mixer, like Sprite. But you can also jazz that up just a little bit.
Rum and Not-Coke
- 2 shots dark spiced rum
- 2 shots Sprite
- 2 splashes grenadine
Pour your rum over ice (be heavy or light handed depending on the kind of drinker you are).
Match it with an equal amount of Sprite.
Add a couple splashes of cherry grenadine and mix.
Our favorite things on the web this week:
- First free solo at El Capitan– we just visited Yosemite for our anniversary, so when I saw that this dude just free solo climbed El Capitan (aka- no ropes, no harness, no safety, no nothin’), I couldn’t believe it. We looked up at El Cap and it was incredibly insane. This dude started at the bottom with nothing at all and climbed all the way to the top in less than four hours. Insane.
- Apple announcements– Apple had their annual conference where they announce all of their new products and software. There are a lot of new things going on this year, so take a look at how you might be upgrading your home.
- The newest astronauts – NASA just announced 12 new astronaut candidates – and their resumes are astounding! I can’t imagine being brave enough to go into space. Bravo to these talented people!
- Zillow lawsuit – I heard about this in the Chris Loves Julia Podcast. Did you ever use Zillow while househunting? They are being sued because their Zestimates are so very off. When we were house hunting, everyone warned us that they were inaccurate. I’m interested to see how this one goes!
Hope you guys are enjoying the start of summer. We’re entering a crazy three week stretch where we both go out of town for different work trips on different weeks and have visitors on the two bracketing weekends. Whew!
