The Bla’gaard

The Bla’gaard (local bastardisation of ‘black guard’ — example: “I bla’gaarded the bugger”) was invented by my goodself out of necessity (it was Poya, it was the only booze available, and I couldn’t be arsed to go out and get tonic). It has been tried and declared “bloody good” by all my friends.

50ml Rockland Dry Gin
50ml Guava Juice

Take a glass (doesn’t matter what it looks like, as long as it can hold 200ml, who gives a shit), and add 3-4 roughly broken chunks of ice (no cubes please). Drop in two thick wedges of lime. Pour gin. Add guava juice. Top up with soda. Stir well. Cheers.Repeat until desired result is achieved.

PS: For a slightly sweeter (Baby Bla’gaard) version, use Sprite instead of soda. For a slightly bitter (Damn Bla’gaard) version, use tonic instead of soda.

  3. Chris would probably have opted for neat Mendis Gold.

    BTW the Bla’gaard went well with the Goan sausage.

  4. […] rooms, complete with cushions, cofee tables, and ashtrays, and these are perfect for the evening Bla’gaard or joint. And did I mention the croquet? Yes, the hoops I stumbled over on the lawn are meant for […]
