eat, drink and be merry: saturday night

"A man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry."
Ecclesiastes 8: 15


To eat

Personally, I would never eat a kebab when I'm sober, but when the inside of your mouth tastes like vodka and a hoarse throat, there is nothing better in this world than a good döner kebab with melted cheese and an ice-cold can of coke.

Furthur scientific evidence from Wikipedia: The "late night kebab" has become an icon of urban food culture in Australia, with kebabs often purchased and consumed following a night of drinking. Kebabs are considered suitable following consumption of alcohol due their high content of lipids (fats) which aids in metabolism of alcohol.


To drink

Beer is beer. Wine is wine. Goon is goon (and goon is disgusting). You open the can, bottle or big bogan-looking ugly silver bag and away you go.

But making cocktails takes creativity, like art. With bit of skill and a little flare you can turn a few ingredients into something that tastes damn good and looks damn fine.



Michel's "Mali-Melon" Martinis
Serves 2

2 oz Malibu
2 oz Pimm's No. 1 Cup
2 slices watermelon
1 cup apple juice
1 cup crushed ice

Process ingredients in an ice blender on the finest setting to a smooth consistency. Coat rim of martini glass with sugar syrup and dip in caster sugar. Pour contents of blender into glass to the rim and garnish with slice of watermelon.



To be McMerry

All good things come in threes: so next time you go for after-clubbing maccas, do yourself a favour and get an apple pie, a soft serve cone and a packet of cookies. And all for a low price of $3.75.
