ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

Designs & Ragtags

Have you ever managed to scroll all the way to the bottom of my blog? If you have, you know eventually you'll find a cool art quote and a yumma libation. A day or so ago, the cocktail recipe was for something called a Merry Berry, which I am totally going to try, just as soon as I get past my next deadline, and my next payday! If you want to try it NOW, well, here ya go:

Merry Berry

1/2 bottle vodka
2 large handfuls strawberries - NICE! I love recipes which involve "handfuls".
Also, recipes that use the word "whizz" (see below).
4 shots gin
Soak the strawberries in the vodka. Place in fridge overnight, or at least a few hours before you make the cocktail. Place strawberries, vodka, and ice cubes in blender and whizz until crushed, add gin and lemonade to taste, pour into a pitcher, and serve in tall chilled glasses.
