1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: The Terry Pratchett tribute Swap (SU 04/20-04/30; SO 05/30/15) on: Today at 07:52:50 PM

I would be tempted to put the ginger liqueur in some green tea - just for a zippy and refreshing drink.  That is good for you... yeah, that's right, let's just call it a healthy drink.

Mine is small in size, but feels kind of heavy.  My feet are killing me from work today so I am not sure if I am up to walking to the PO - maybe tonight if we go out to pick up some groceries.  It is done, I am just going to go and package it up.

BTW - anyone try those jello shot strawberries on Pinterest? - the ones where the whole strawberry is hulled, slightly hollowed, then you make the vodka/jello combo and spoon that in the center to set?  I did those with orange jello for a Christmas gathering and they were DELICIOUS!!!!  Fussy to make, but fun to eat. One of out aunts also did the one with the jello shot in the orange peel half, then cut into slices when set - also fun and delicious!

OMG - that postcard is hilarious!

I am loving the cactus fruit liqueur and thanks for sharing the recipe.  I love the idea of the ginger one, so I may try my hand at that too - I love ginger anything.  I agree with Wulf - I do see prickly pear when I go to the Asian/South Asian markets, and some of the larger grocery stores here in Toronto.  Wulf, I like your idea of the hibiscus flower too - but where to get it?  In dried form?

I had a truly crappy week at work, my legs are aching like mad just from the physical work, and my soul is sucked because of the high percentage of a-holes, and BS I had to cope with, and to top it off, I really wanted a bit of happy juice when I came home - BUT <not so>DH LEFT ME NOTHING!!!!!!

He will have no idea how close he came to being smothered in his sleep last night


Anyways, I need to productively rant in a workload form for my union and manager instead, so I will stop there, and just drink coffee, and think happy thoughts until I go to the liqueur store tonight.

On a happy note - I have a new student working with me and we somehow got onto the conversation that veered into marinated vodka watermelons and she suggested something truly awesome IMO - after soaking the vodka into the watermelon, slice off a side, take a handheld blender and blend it up and just ladle out the contents as a drink.  My idea on top of that was to just use the jumbo bubble tea straws and stick it into the watermelon to make one big cocktail with a biodegradable container... why mess up a glass after all? 

I have been updating feedback, so please check your profiles and let me know if this swap is not showing up in your profiles!  We have a pretty cool group forming here Smiley

Think compliments to drinking... like your own special chalice or stein (we each had one in our own group for awhile).  An ice pack cozy and eye masks for the morning after, a shrine to Dionysus...

Where are you shipping from? - there are likely different regulations for shipping from different nations, and likely they will have some information about that on the website of your postal company (a list of prohibited goods/dangerous materials/etc).

I think the horns could be done with a thick I-cord, and either a knit end or a pompom at the end, and perhaps something like a pipe cleaner in the middle for some light structure, and the ability to lightly pose, or just lightly stuffed.

It was brought to my attention to ensure that everyone is aware that as per Craftster swap rules (and undoubtedly some POs rules and customs rules too) that there is to be no alcohol to be sent in the packages - it is prohibited.  So please, no samples of actual booze, or anything containing booze...

Recipes, some mix ingredients, and boozy crafts/art yes, but no booze itself, please!

Maybe, I am trying not to have too many swaps on the go at once though, so it would depend on the time line...
