Casa KB and the House Cocktail

This year really has been terribly eventful. There have been many occasions requiring toasting, e.g. my sister got married, I started a new job and I moved out of home! Cray cray!

lets make a toast…

later.

Because firstly I have lots to do!

 

This whole moving malarky is pretty full on. I never realised how much stuff I possess and am not at all willing to let go. Thank goodness I only moved down the road so was able to ferry my bits and pieces across in stages. First came the important things…

cardigans

am I right ladies? A girl can never have too many.

nailpolish

see above.

then a fridgey didge

a bed

and shoe storage. Only the essentials.

I moved in with my high school friend B and so far it has been amazing! We have been busy settling in, acquiring all the stuff you need for a new place seeing as neither of us really had any furniture. Lucky I came with all my cooking stuff so our kitchen was pretty well stocked. By the way, how big and newly renovated is our kitchen??

but surprisingly, it was only just big enough to house all my kitchen stuff

I have been doing lots and lots of baking in my new kitchen but I have also been stocking my liquor cabinet to make some delicious cocktails this holidays.

here is a small sample…

I made a cocktail to celebrate our housewarming, which has become so popular it has become the house cocktail.

Its a very simple recipe:

ice

1 shot spiced rum

1 shot apple schnapps

lemonade to fill

You don’t even need a cocktail shaker! Jus plonk it all in a tall class and stir. Its very refreshing in our hot Australian summer and a nice fruity/spicy concoction that seems to sit well during the festive season.

So, my lovelies, what and how have you been celebrating this year? And when are you stopping by for a Casa KB Cocktail?
