The Divali Divas

This may come a few days late -- to everyone -- Happy Diwali and happy new year! To celebrate it, landed up at a party thrown by the 'Divali Divas,' where the ladies had concocted a drink called "Ginger Rogers".

Mix rum with ginger ale, real ginger and mint, and pour the drink into a glass using a strainer -- that ensures mint leaves don't fall into the glass.

Voila, you have a drink as knock-out as that Diva actress Ginger Rogers.

R, if I'm missing something, call. If you try this drink and don't like it, trash talk.

For some reason, I'm better at remembering drink concoctions than cooking recipes, don't know why.

And the elections in Azerbaijan are over, with Aliyev's party claiming victory. Results were as expected -- now I can rest after what has been a stressful weekend. We perhaps won't hear about Azerbajian for the next few years other than some occassional scuffles between the Armenians and the Azeris in Nagorno-Karabakh.
