Basic Potato Salad Recipe Guest Post From The Complete Savorist!

Hi everyone, I’m Michelle from The Complete Savorist and am really excited to be here with you today. Thank you Serena for the opportunity to share a recipe with you.
How many of you have a potato salad recipe? Most of you I bet. I have many. My parents divorced when I was young, so I don’t have just two recipes, one from the maternal grandma and one from the paternal grandma, but over six different family potato salad recipes.

Earl Grey ginger spritzer
Hello everyone, this is Janette from Culinary Ginger and I have for you a light, refreshing Summery drink. This Early Grey ginger spritzer is just Earl Grey tea and non alcoholic ginger beer. A simple 2 ingredient drink perfect for sipping on those warmer days or evenings as the sun goes down.

More than 60 billion (that's billion with a 'b') cups of tea are consumed in Britain every year, wow. Earl Grey is one of the most popular teas to drink and is not just used to drink hot out of tea cups anymore. I'm seeing tea being added more recently in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, just like this Earl Grey ginger spritzer.

To achieve the 'layered' look of the drink, I first poured the more viscous (thicker) of the 2 liquids, the ginger beer, to half fill the glass. I then poured the tea into a jug with a small spout because I want a slow pour. I tilted the glass and poured the tea as slowly as I could (and got some spillage) down the side of the glass and that's it. A delicious drink that everyone will enjoy.
