This week’s p52 theme is “Drink Up!”. While I thought about this I realized my daily drinks of choice are an lovely Irish Breakfast Tea in the morning and then water the rest of the day. I rarely deviate from that but there are 4 drinks that are always in my house.
This is actually quite funny because only one of these is actually consumed as a beverage- the rest are used for cooking and baking!
Front and center is Magner’s, which, in Ireland is known as Bulmer’s. Or, in my opinion, the best hard cider in the world. That I drink, though not as often as I would like due to the fact that I can’t get it in Iowa and a 3+ hour drive to buy alcohol ceased being “cool” when I was in my 20’s.
Behind that is a lovely Irish Whiskey, Tullamore Dew, Ireland’s most popular export, Guinness, and O’Reilly’s Irish Cream, as smooth as the other stuff but not as expensive. Those three items are used for baking my famous Irish Car Bomb cupcakes, in my Steak & Guinness Pie, or a delicious Irish Stew. (PS- want some great Irish recipes for St. Patrick’s Day?

I shoot with an Olympus PEN E-PL1. I used the “art” setting ‘pin hole’ to achieve the darkness around the edges and edited the photo with Creative Memories Storybook Creator software, using the ‘fuzzy surfaces’ effect.
