100 Happy Days: Miraflores

My last run in the Miraflores district of Lima.

I love all the mosaic art at Parque del Amor.

I ordered a Coco Loco.

Dinner at Fiesta.

My favorite dish: ceviche a la brasa. This is my favorite ceviche dish in Peru, quickly seared on corn husks. NOM.

Flare in Newark

The bar inside Nijo Castle in Newark serves up tasty sushi and cocktails. On the weekends, crooners show off their ballad skills for Karaoke night.

On some nights, you can catch a bartender showing off his flare.

Making Egg Nog

I love egg nog.
I was thrilled when my hubby wanted to drink this holiday cocktail as we decorated our Christmas Tree.

Christmas Cocktails

We mixed up Jim Bean, Captain Morgan’s Spicy Rum, Lucerne Egg Nog and Lucerne Dulce de Leche Egg Nog. I liked to count to 6 on my pours of the Jim Bean and the Captain. The hubby likes to measure out his shots with a shot glass. To each one’s own. Then we added whipped cream and nutmeg on top of the cocktail. It taste rich and sweet. It’s the perfect drink for the season.

And yes, I know that gray hoodie makes me look like a bum. I just got off work and I was thinking about my on-camera apperance. Grrr.
