#TBT

May 14, 2015

Comments Off

Throwback Thursday is a recurring Internet theme that encourages the online community to share old photographs (traditionally of people) via social networks once a week. The proliferation of #tbt is largely credited to Instagram – the online mobile photo-sharing networking service; Just ten months after instagram introduced hashtags to the platform in 2011, #tbt became an established trend. The theme, however, is cross-platform and can be found on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and blogs such as this.

 

A little late to the game, we decided it was time to contribute to the tbt community. In order to do so we dusted off some shelves and looked into EQ3’s equivalent of a family photo album – our catalogues. One Thursday every month, we will post an image from our past; Chucklesome or inspiring, we will honour the past by posting in the present.

Here’s a simple, refreshing martini recipe to celebrate the arrival of spring. You’ll need to make a simple syrup by bringing equal parts of sugar and water to a simmer on the stove top and allowing it to cool. Then, grab a martini shaker and add the following:

 

– Ice Cubes
– Fresh rosemary (strip the leaves directly into the shaker from a sprig about 10cm in length)
– 2oz freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
– 1oz simple syrup
– 1oz Canadian Rye whiskey

 

Shake vigorously to infuse the rosemary flavour and pour into a martini glass. Enjoy spring!
