Apple Rum Cider

Celebratory drink for getting a job last week. Started this week. Crazy tired all the time now, but I bet it’s from getting used to being up so early and doing stuff all day.


  • 1 shot of dark rum
  • ice
  • enough apple cider to fill the glass
  • juice of 1/2 of a lemon


1) Mix all together.

White Wine Sangria

For Korean Memorial Day (June 6th) almost everyone had the day off and some of my friends had a BBQ. I brought Sangria and forgot to take a picture. Recipe taken from here.


  • 1 bottle of white wine
  • 3 cups of sprite
  • 1/2 cup dark rum (I used 151)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups pineapple
  • 4 apples
  • 1 cup mango
  • 1 orange


1) Mix all the ingredients.

2) Serve cold.

Mushroom, Carrot and Vodka Sauce

Vodka Mushroom Carrot Pasta Sauce 009

I had a lot of carrots and mushrooms left over from all the other cooking I’ve been doing (and I’ve still got more mushrooms) and because I buy at the market in Korea and always tend to get 10x as much as I want of any one thing but for a super cheap price.


  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 cups of mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 can of tomatoes
  • 2 cups of cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup of cabbage
  • pasta
  • Parmesan cheese


Vodka Mushroom Carrot Pasta Sauce 0011) Heat the olive oil on medium heat.

2) Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes, until it starts to brown.

3) Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes, until the onion begins to soften.

4) Add the carrots and cook for 5 minutes, until they begin to soften.

Vodka Mushroom Carrot Pasta Sauce 0035) Add the mushrooms, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, vodka, salt and pepper and cook for about 10 minutes.

6) Add the cabbage and cook until it is wilted, about 2 minutes.

6) While this is happening cook the pasta. Traditionally I would say to finish cooking the pasta in the sauce but that does not work for me with only 1 burner.

7) Top with Parmesan cheese before serving.
