Dash soda
DBL shot of (dark) Rum
Crushed ice

Method - Limes and sugar inside collins glass, preferably squeeze the limes before muddling it,
gently chuck the mint leaves followed by the crushed ice,
fill to the very top even if it comes out. Double shot of rum in, get a big (bar) spoon
and use the flat end to churn gently ice/rum/mint. The mint shouldn't break itself.
Stick 2 large straws on one side, fill it up with loads of crushed ice and finalize with a top-up
of soda water.
Enjoy.
Oooh a booze expert... Nuknow, can I pick your brains as well please? I'd like to make an Earl Grey cocktail to welcome the guests to my wedding party. So far all efforts taste less fun than... well... anything! Any ideas?

The Stelvio is a long way from the nearest airport - you're best bet is either Milan airport or Bergamo, then hire a car and drive there.

Other passes in the area that are worth doing are the Gavia and the Mortirolo. You can also head west towards Livigno over the Foscagno and Eira passes but be aware that Livigno has special duty free status so is popular with day trippers heading there to stock up on cheap booze and the road gets very busy.

If you're there a couple of days then I'd recommend two rides:

1. Bormio - Umbrail (4/5ths of the way up the Stelvio), descend down, turn right, hit Prato then climb the north side of the Stelvio and descend back to Bormio.

2. Head south from Bormio to Mazzo, do the Mortirolo, descend, turn left to Ponte di Legno, then do the Gavia, then descend back to Bormio.

Ideally after black with coloured zip, but nice dense fabric is priority.

Unfortunately their price has gone up over the last few years. Bought a bunch of their crews and hoodies about 5 years ago and they are still in decent condition despite lots of wears.

I am a big fan of unbranded SuperDry
http://www.superdry.com/mens/hoods

Perhaps this one:
http://www.superdry.com/mens/hoods/d...assic-zip-hood

The fabric is incredibly thick compared to anything else I have owned.

Not unbranded, slim fit and nearly £80!! I'd say that's a bullshit hoody. To each his own though.

It's got to do with the sugar/eggs/butter combo.
A lot of people melt the butter in the microwave, even if just for a while, before whisking them
with the sugar, it is very risky.
Everything should either be cold or room temperature. When the eggs are joined last, if the butter/sugar
mix is above ±15º there's a huge chance it will curdle. Best to use stuff out of the
fridge (to room temperature). I never melt butter when baking, room temperature only.
When mixing the eggs they should go in 1 at a time, always mixing each one very well before adding the next.
If this happens, it won't curdle.

When I said coloured zip I meant red, blue or green not that silly white AA shit.

Also AA have famously poor fabric quality and stupid hipsterexic sizes.

If you clicked on my link you would find a black hoodie without any "OSAKA" or "SuperXXX" branding bollocks on it.
Hence "unbranded".

Yes it probably still has the little orange tab on the sleeve but that's easy to cut off.
Their material quality is way above AA, Gap, Nike, Bench, Lonsdale, FUBU, whatever...

Superdry does have nice meaty fabrics and it's well made. In fact, it's my favourite douchebag brand.


Uniqlo is for perfumed ponces, though.
