Named for the bar in which it calls home, this cocktail, Kong, will not disappoint.
The last few months I have teamed up with the amazing people at @romerapp to bring you my top three Christchurch bars to visit this summer. And @kongbar_nz was firmly on that list!
Keep an eye out for the next two bars on my list of must-dos.

Ti Punch anyone? This is my new favorite drink on @canelanddistilling’s menu with Rhum Agricole, cane syrup, and fresh lime juice.
With LEAF, you can make the organic cocktails of your dreams. Like our chef’s special Mountain Breeze cocktail with 1.5 oz LEAF Rocky Mountains Vodka, 1 oz. lime juice, 1 oz honey water syrup, 3 oz green tea and fresh blueberries. Just combine all the ingredients in a cockail shaker, bruise the blueberries with a muddler, add ice and shake. This Mountain Breeze cocktail tastes best served in a collins glass with your best friends by your side
When you’ve had a long day...oh who am I kidding...a long life lol! And your guy brings home the largest bottle of @titosvodka that he can find...you know he is a freaking genius. #alcohol#vodka#lowcarb#monday
Fortune And Glory: Calvados, Pommeau, Walnut, Tarragon, Ginger, Cinnamon and Lemon. Served Hot.
Message In A Bottle: Shochu, Rum, Manzanilla Sherry, All Spice, Passion Fruit, White Miso.
Days off are for studying. With a drink of course. This is my own creation:
Elixir of Life, a play on the Harry Potter potion, and a classic Affinity cocktail.
1.5 monkey shoulder
.5 Campari .5 dry vermouth .5 Amantillado Sherry
Dash of angostura
If you didn't know, whiskey in Scottish Gaelic is "uisge-beatha", which literally translates to water of life.
Affinity means a connection to a similar origin, which I thought would be fitting to include Scotland, Italy, Spain, and France in this cocktail to bring the European powerhouses together in one drink.
2 oz. gin (@durhamdistillery Conniption Navy Strength)
3/4 oz. lemon juice
3/4 oz. pineapple juice
1/2 oz. orgeat (@lorgeat)
2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Shake all ingredients with crushed ice and open pour into a double Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with edible orchids and cherries.

Elegance in Wine? What does it mean?
Elegance might refer to Grace, style, refinement, even sophistication but when describing a wine it's harder to see the real meaning. It's not a definite aroma nor a mouth feel. It's more of an overall feeling or a general impression. I think that elegant wines have a certain subtlety about them. They tend toward the sublime. Elegant wines are also often complex. Because elegance carries a certain fragility within itself. For me, an elegant wine cannot be powerful, and if it's full-bodied it needs to show a restrained and delicate side too. However, it may not be bland. There's a vitality and liveliness in it. It is a great descriptor to express the passion in a wine or to demonstrate appreciation in a poetic way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🚨NEW BREATHE IN PODCAST on drinking, peer pressure, & social situations while having a chronic disease 🥂🍾🍺|| Drinking, peer pressure, & different social situations are real in everyone's lives whether you have a chronic disease, like CF, or not. This week we talk about how we have handled some of these difficult decisions both in responsible & not so responsible ways... Gunnar recounts the time he funneled a beer through his feeding tube (not at all recommended!!!) We also elaborate on how we handle these situations in general now & how they have evolved & changed over the years with not only age but the progression of our cystic fibrosis. This is definitely one of the most real podcasts we have filmed yet!!
