Blog one...

So, the very first 5 Aces blog.... As such likely to be short and utterly disappointing... But stay with us and I'm sure things will improve.

It was suggested that I should use the inaugural blog to simply list what it is we do- however we are mysterious folk and loathed to reveal our secrets clandestine as we are. So if you want to know what we are about check out the website numbnuts.

Instead I shall use this as a cyber-soapbox and rant whenever I like. I guess it will also have some info about up coming events (such as the tramps ball: dates to follow) and hopefully soon also the ability to download a podcast of our little sample sessions and showcases.

I will endeavour to launch this cast on a Thursday or Friday and if anything interesting happens over the weekend (unlikely) a Monday too.

Your Mission for the weekend:

   Make someone a gin drink. They probably deserve it. Even if they don't they'll appreciate it. You might even get a thank you. Or laid. Whichever you'd prefer.

   5 Aces Suggests the Hibiscus Smash:
                50ml        Tanqueray Export Strength
                12.5ml     Elderflower Cordial
                12.5ml     Lemon Juice
                4-6           Good Green Grapes
                2-3           Mint Leaves
               Top Up     Soda Water
                Dash        Hibiscus Syrup

Muddle the grapes with the lemon juice. Add the wet ingredients and shake vigorously.  Pour over crushed ice and top with soda if necessary. Splash over a dash of hibiscus syrup and a flower if you're feeling so inclined.

If you do make one up take a picture and send it in and we'll selflessly use your work as our own...
