The Cosmopolitan

No, NOT that cosmopolitan!

THIS Cosmopolitan

THIS Cosmopolitan is a kind of cocktail mixed with vodka and the cranberry juice.  Since the seventies, where it came out from the gay communities and seedy bars, the cocktail spread out from one bar to another until it was settled to shine from the fingers of desperate women of the HBO Series "Sex and the City".  The recipe for the cosmo vary for bartender to bartender, but the main ingredients -- vodka and cranberry juice -- remains the constant base.  

Here's a variant of the cosmo cited from this site:

  • Prep Time: 3 minutes
  • Total Time: 3 minutes
  • Yield: 1 Cocktail
  • Ingredients:
    • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
    • Orange peel for garnish
  • Preparation:
  1. Shake all the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with an orange peel.
Optionally, use citron vodka in place of unflavored vodka for a fruitier taste.

So that's about it.  Oh wait there's more.  There's a game about how to make a good cosmo in picking out an ingredient in a cabinet of ingredients.  Click on the image below to lead you there.
Results are ranked by the bartender, who also tastes your cocktail, and by mean ranked, it means reactions, like this one:

Epic Fail at it's Finest.

Sangria Time

Preparation time: 5 minutes of mixing, 6 hours of chilling

Tired of that boring old fermented grape extract you call wine?  Well here's to something to make your taste buds crave for more: sangria!

Sangria. It's wine, only 20% better!
Make it as your go-to drink when you’re expecting more than eight people to a cocktail party. It's quite easy to make as they do with punch. Plus, its fruity taste makes it a hit in almost any party—from a summer backyard BBQ to a bachelorette party to a kickass wedding on a zombie apocalypse night! Remember, the trick to making good sangria is to use the freshest fruits and the best alcohol.


  • 2/3 cup brandy
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) dry red wine
  • ½ cup triple sec or peach schnapps
  • 1 lemon, sliced in rounds
  • 1 orange, sliced in rounds
  • 8 maraschino cherries
  • ¼ cup sugar (optional)
  • 2 cups club soda or ginger ale (optional)


    1. Mix together the brandy, juices, dry wine, triple sec or peach schnapps. Add the sliced lemon and orange, plus the cherries. Taste the mixture, and add the ¼ cup sugar if you wish to make it sweeter.
    2. Refrigerate for at least six hours to get the best flavor. 
    3. Pour some club soda or ginger ale (for a sweeter finish) before serving. This gives your drink a bit of fizz.

    Serves: 8

    Mooding Sites for The Movies

    I f*cking love this game.  It's a game that makes movies, decorates lots, raising stars and bringing tons of bacon all at the same time.  It's... *le drumroll*
    *fanfare that would make the whole Final Fantasy series cry*

    For those who don't know this, it's a "something completely different" game created by the same company that brought you Black & White and Fable.

    Minor intros aside.  Despite being awesome at its best, it seems to be missing in some things...  The solution to that?  Modding is the solution to that.

    Whenever possible,  note to self: go to these websites:
    Making your own mods is optional, but relaxing.
    That is all.

    Coco Chanel

    courteously cited from a draft I made from TVTropes...

    “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”

    Gabrielle "Coco" Bonheur Chanel (19 August 1883 - 10 January 1971) was the most iconic French couturier ever brought in history. Her innovative creations shaped The Twentieth Century and is one of the main contributors that liberated women's fashion, alongside creating the eponymous fashion brand renowned and distributed worldwide. Chanel was born from a poor family, the second child of six, where her mother was laundering and her father was always "travelling" around France selling goods for the family. After her mother died, she was sent to a convent, along with her sisters. At the age of twelve, she learned sewing and other things from the nuns that would inspire her late life. After working as a seamstress and moonlighting as a stage singer, she opened a hat shop in 1910 in Paris and sportswear shop in 1913 in Deauville that was immediately adored by her early patrons. By the time World War One ended, and her notoriety well-known in France, she opened her first couture house at 31 Rue Cambon in Paris in 1918. The Roaring Twenties was the era of her prime, being participative in women's liberation at the same time innovative and adaptable. In 1921, with the help of a professional perfumer, she introduced the Parfum No. 5, alongside other parfums, makeup and skincare products made later. Other than that, she experimented in fabrics like jersey and tweed, both originally used in men's clothes, and in 1926, perfected the Little Black Dress. Not to mention, she popularized the loose silhouette when she borrowed a fisherman's jacket, wearing pants and cardigan, donning bobbed hair, short skirts, sparkly beaded dresses, and tanned skin. All these things shaped The Flapper as is. By the time The Great Depression hit, she was at the height of her fame, all thanks to Hollywood patrons and actresses wearing her designs. But sadly, as World War Two came, and when the Nazis invaded France, she closed shop and secluded Ritz for the rest of the war. Accused as a collaborateur from an affair with a Nazi agent, she was acquitted by the British and Americans and moved to Switzerland, where she left the sewing machine for good... ...for about fifteen years. By that time, Christian Dior was at his peak, with his silhouette consisting an ultrafeminine chic of long skirts, narrow shoulders, accented busts and thin waists that was considered a big break from wartime rationing. Chanel reopened her shop with a jersey suit contrasting Dior's silhouette, at the age of 70. While it wasn't well-recieved in Paris due to her wartime association, it was well-favored by the British and Americans. All the while, despite the mixed reputation, she continued to run the business in The Sixties and left it running well when it emerged as a fashion empire after her death. She is the only fashion designer included in TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the Twentieth Century and still is.

    What if...

    ...The Man is a Woman?

    ... I still have questions?

    Ever get tired of walking to Wikipedia all day with nothing but senseless misinformation or trolls and vandals?  Trying to find a more fun friendly site that helps you think more of what you see everyday?

    Well, TVTropes has that for you.

    It's that site where you get a lot of collective stuff called "tropes" in your novelwriting, scriptwriting, showmaking and every stuff.  Remember that these are very different from clichés, while they can pop up from time to time, they do don't pop up always.

    None much more to say than you can find the link HERE.
