Giveaway Winners & A Treat

While I'm inundated with revision (heads up on my forensic practical, I got full marks! :) here are the winners of my birthday giveaway:

Winner no. 1, receiving a set of handmade jewellery, is Jessica from A Yen For Craft, who likes ice cream cake best for her birthday! Congratulations Jessica! :)

Winner no. 2, receiving a Lonsdale dress pattern from Sewaholic is Becky from Sew and So, who likes the chocolatiest chocolate cake! Congratulations, Becky! :)

Dear winners, please contact me with your address details at aldara at gmx dot net.

For everyone else, here is a little something I picked up at one of my birthday gifts (a cocktail making class!) - the best summery Vanilla Piña Colada ever:

Vanilla Piña Colada:
3cl Coconut sirup
6cl dark rum
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
1 dash lime juice
6cl pinapple juice

Put everything into a shaker with lots of big ice cubes and shake for 20s. Strain and serve in a chilled glass with a piece of pineapple.
The even more awesome version uses fresh, juicy pinapple instead of juice and is blended in a blender with crushed ice for about 20s...
