Monday, October 25th, 2010

SoftpediaSoftpedia is a web site which offers loads of different software application downloads.BarMirror wine journal application is available on this site and they have tested the software against spyware, adware and viruses and can guarantee that it is 100% clean. This is good news as a user on Download.com web site said that the software contained a Trojan, after testing it myself I confirmed it was OK, this ‘clean’ award from Softpedia backs up my testing and confirms that BarMirror is clean.

Mudslide Cocktail Recipe

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

This is now one of our favourite cocktails, if you like Baileys Irish Cream this is one for you.

  • 1.5 msr Irish Cream Liqueur into a cocktail shaker.
  • 1.5 msr Kahlua
  • 1.5 msr Vodka
  • 3 scoops vanilla ice cream, I would recommend a good quality ice cream like Green & Blacks
  • Shake and pour into glasses.
  • Add some ice if you would like, but it is not essential.

This is a great cocktail which is easy to make, but will not be able to drink much of with it being so rich and creamy.

Moroccan Wines

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

We recently spent a week in Marrakech, which is a city of contrasts with the busy chaotic streets and the calm retreat of the riads. While there we came across some wines. Although Morocco is 98% Muslim and drinking alcohol is forebidden they produce some very good wines. We believe the best are the red wines, which are usually serve slightly chilled, this is due to the room temperature being in the thirties. The guide books said to try the rose wines and while there we saw loads of people drinking the rose, we thought the reds where much better, this may be because we are not fans of rose. If you get the chance I would recommend trying a Moroccan Red, we are on the look about for somewhere that sells them in the UK. When we have found one we will do a review on BarMirror.
