2017 Janet Cram Dance Awards

Sofia was fortunate enough to take part in the prestigious 2017 Janet Cram Dance Awards.  This is her third year competing and she received a commendation for her performance on the day.

She’s very proud, as are we all!

I did a quick vlog of the journey too;

We’d like to thank all the staff at North Liverpool Dance Academy for their continued support, all the staff & volunteers at the Janet Cram Awards, the ISTD and finally a huge Good Luck! to those who got through to the finals in London!  Enjoy it and do your best – leave it all on the stage!

Strawberry Prosecco Sparkler

Drinking a glass of Prosecco with my wife earlier this evening I looked down and noticed my Strawberry looked a lot like a heart!  I had to capture it!

Anyway, the reason for the blog post is I found a fabulous little Strawberry Prosecco Sparkler Cocktail recipe by Rachael Ray.  The full recipe can be found at on Rachel Ray Every Day  alongside a heap of other fabulous foodie favourites!

Strawberry Prosecco Sparkler

It goes something like this;

Ingredients

  • 6 sugar cubes (1 per glass!)
  • Angostura bitters
  • Bottle of the North Eastern Italy’s finest Prosecco (Champagne or Sparkling Wine could be used too)
  • 4 fresh strawberries, thinly sliced

Preparation

Put a sugar cube into each glasses and douse with a few dashes of the Angostura bitters. Gently pour the Prosecco over top; garnish with sliced strawberries and enjoy!

Please drink responsibly! 

Namaste

Steve.
