#13 – ZOMG, Sarah, we HAVE to try this!
So, I was searching Flickr for a photo to go with my last posting and when I typed in “101 in 1001” under the Creative Commons-licensed photo search, this was the first hit:
A friggin’ Dark & Stormy cupcake!!
Apparently Lauren, a.k.a. cuttlefish, had on her 101 in 1001 days list: invent a bitchin’ cupcake recipe. And this was her creation and she tagged it “101 in 1001” and that is how I find it. And now I want to eat it.
Some background: Sarah introduced me to the deliciousness that is the Dark & Stormy – a drink made of dark rum, ginger beer and, I believe, lime juice. She and Dave first tried it on a Carribbean cruise they went on. We tried to make them in Calgary but the ginger beer we got was fierce so we dubbed those the “Dark & Burny.” Undrinkable, they were. But Sarah and I had some at The Reef one time when she was visiting (which I totally thought I had a photo of but can’t seem to find in my Flickr. *curses self for not tagging Flickr photos properly*). So. Delish.
The recipe for these is here. Seriously, Sar, we must, must make these at the next available opportunity!
Update: So, as Sarah notes in the comments section, the reason I couldn’t find the photos of us in the my Flickr is because she took those photos on her camera! She sent them to me, so here they are:
