The clumsy dance of the colours and patterns of life

Witness the clumsy dance of the colours and patterns of life, the sometimes-harmonic, sometimes-cacophonic combination of the silence and the noise all around, and the heroes and the helpless within.
Welcome to my little corner of The Mighty Interwebs, where it is not likely you will find anything profound (or even very interesting), but where you will find all manner of random. Life is a kaleidoscope of the weird and the wonderful, the awesome and the awful, the blessings and the bizarre, and the collision between them is what you just might stumble upon here if you stick around. Grab your favorite drink and come hang out with me if you dare.

Strawberry Basil Martini

I had one of these last night. At first, I wasn't sure how the basil would work with the strawberries, but it is darn fine! :-)

3 fresh strawberries, cored and sliced
3 basil leaves
Splash of simple syrup (equal parts of sugar and water, boiled until dissolved)
2 ounces vodka (or 1 ounce gin and 1 ounce vodka, apparently)
1/2 ounce lime juice (optional)

Combine muddled strawberries, chilled simple syrup, and basil leave in shaker. Add lime juice if using, vodka (or gin & vodka) and ice, shake. Tip into martini glass, garnish with a basil leaf and/or a strawberry, and enjoy!
