friday : favorite soundtrack to my gypsy tea

I have a real obsession for gypsy dance and music, hence the extended soundtrack.

This one is by Shantel, a new sensation in the Balkan. It's called 'Disko Partizani'

This one is the New York based band Gogol Bordello

And finally, my own personal attempt at Gypsy folk dance. Not so convincing but I'm still working on it!

And here is the recipe for homemade Gypsy Tea, enjoy!

2 Oranges                                          
3 Lemons
1 dozen Cloves
1 Tbs. Ground Allspice
1/2 Cinnamon Stick
3 Tbs. Black Tea
2 Quarts Boiling Water
1 & 1/4 Cups Sugar


Squeeze juice from the oranges & lemons; set aside. Remove rinds & put in large
container. Add cloves, allspice, cinnamon sticks & tea. Pour boiling water over
the tea mixture & let stand for about 10 minutes. Strain & then return liquid
container. Stir in the juices & sugar.
