No, really! What a freakin’ week it has been and it’s only Tuesday!


It started with me winning a Sodastream!! Say what?!? You heard right! I was on my way out for a run and then I saw that a Sodastream street team was going to be in Times Square. If you were the first to see them and say a password you could win a Sodastream. I obviously took my run to Times Square and lo and behold, I won me a Sodastream.

All I want to do is carbonate my favorite liquors like Sorel but I am following the instructions like a good gay and just carbonating water. Sigh..

On the bright side there are some really fun soda recipes out there. My favs being from my hot friend, blog tutor, and food blogger, Andrew (who’s getting married in a couple weeks!! MAZEL!) He writes a fun blog called Eating Rules. Here are two of my favorites that he suggests.

Scoop of Raspberry Pulp
6-8 drops Vanilla Extract

The RaspberPeach That Gave Andrew A Headache The Next day
Scoop of Raspberry Pulp
Chopped Mint Leaves
Almond Extract
Dash of Fee Brothers Bitters
Peach Vodka

Take a glass, add the ingredients, pour some freshly fizzy soda on top, and enjoy…responsibly!
