how to make a caipirinha

There's no better way to start the weekend than with a caipirinha. My parents first encountered this sweet and sour drink in Brasil three years ago. My dad puts it up there with a Manhattan as his favorite drink.

It's quite tasty and easy to make...



Start with one lime, cut in quarters (or eighths if a large lime).



Add 2 tablespoons fine sugar and mash with a wooden pestle.



Now it's time to add your alcohol. Throw in about 2 oz. of cacha├ža.

Add crushed ice, stir and enjoy!



Yuck - I don't like limes. I prefer beer!

Sunday at the Harbor

Yesterday my grandparents took me on a special visit to Dana Point Harbor.



Here I am waiting for my 100-ft. yacht to arrive...



My uncle Rocky came for the walk, so did my crazy cousin Luca the Chihuahua. I have to wear this "gentle lead" harness or else Luca freaks out and makes satanic duck quacking noises.



We all had a great time!



How was your weekend? Do anything exciting?

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

My new friend Asta is a wire-hair fox terrier who lives in New York City. Recently, she took a car ride to Rhode Island and had fun riding in the backseat.

I, too, enjoy car rides. Here are some pics of my automobile adventures...

I'm very well behaved in the car. I sit up straight and watch the scenery go by.

I also love sticking my head out the window and feeling the wind in my face. My mommy laughs because my ears and jowls flap in the wind.
