Here is a compilation of some of my most re-tweeted Tweets.

Tweet, tweet!

Twitter is fast becoming the preferred social networking site for partyphiles, yuppies, glitterati, and celebrities; and it is easy to understand why. Twitter gives you the chance to share your nuggets of thought with the whole world, or at the very least, the people who follow you. More importantly, it gives you instant information in easily digestible portions (140 characters). Also, this no nonsense, no frills, social networking website allows you to take a peek at the people you wish to. You never have to follow people back, unless you want to. This allows for you to feel like a star and get all the attention that you want; or gives you the perfect avenue for stalking your favorite celebrity or campus crush. The possibilities are endless (well, almost. You have to observe the 140 character rule, but there is Twitlonger for that) with Twitter; especially because more and more people are logging on, and an increasing number of applications are being custom made for the site. So, if you still have not started tweeting, here are some of the tweets you’ve missed:

Drink of the Week: Sandstorm Mocktail

Since we are celebrating a kid-friendly / family-friendly holiday (National Popcorn Day), I decided to give out a recipe for a mocktail (non-alcoholic cocktail).

The sandstorm is tart and sweet ad satisfying, but non-alcoholic. Between you and me, if you are above legal age, I'd just pour in some Vodka in this mix to get a really gorgeous Cocktail! But that's just me. here is the non-alcoholic version:

In a shaker, combine

  • three shots of cranberry juice
  • two shots of pineapple juice
  • two shots of orange juice
  • a tablespoon of grenadine
Shake until the ingredients are completely blended, strain over a tall tumbler, and then garnish with a wedge of lime.

January 19 is NAtional Popcorn Day


Seriously, have you had some cocktails with Margarita in it? It is amazing! More importantly, since this is a child friendly snack, you could pair it with something wholesome. A mocktail!
