45ml Sipsmith Sloe Gin
30ml Black Robin Gin
15ml egg white
10ml sugar syrup
Assemble ingredients in a Boston shaker without ice and shake well. Add ice and shake again, double strain into a martini glass.
Cocktail #2: Espresso Martini
30ml Blue Duck Vodka
30ml Quick Brown Fox
Assemble ingredients in a Boston shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a martini glass.
As you can see from today’s picture, if I were to auto bracket with a bunch of different shots, there would be way too many differences for it to auto-align and de-ghost. So, one image is really okay. Whenever possible, I do try to get multiple images, but whenever I just do a single image, I’m still pretty happy with the results!
Daily Photo – A smooth ride home
We took this on the day our workshop went over to Burano for a mini photo-adventure over there. We came back at sunset and it was absolutely gorgeous! You can see it already. We had two boats… and we all just spent time taking photos of the Other Boat! This was an HDR made with a single RAW with Aurora HDR Pro. I quite like the way it came out!
