Passion Fruit Sangria

With summer just around the corner, temperatures are bound to start rising sooner or later. Most people would rather spend their hot summer evenings on the beach, drinking beer and probably dancing to some nice summery music.

Others, however, would rather spend their summer evenings seated in their fancily lit backyards, burgers on the grill and best of all, a glass of refreshing home-made summer drink in their hands. Mojitos, lemonades, margaritas, smoothies, and sangrias are all ideal drinks for the scorching summer heat.

Sangria is a traditional Spanish summer

The Hart & the Hunter

I heard about Chefs Brian Dunsmoor and Kris Tominaga a few weeks ago when I learned of their pop-up kitchen in Venice, Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing. Unfortunately, they closed the kitchen even before I got the chance to try them out.

Ricky’s Fish Tacos

Well, I simply cannot recall the number of times friends have recommended Ricky’s Fish Tacos, and I have blatantly and stubbornly ignored them. However, two reasons justified my lack of interest; firstly, I loathe fish which means that anything to do with fish automatically loses my attention.
