Chicago Reaches 500 Homicides

Chicago has hit a dismal milestone. A late night shooting has marked the city’s 500th homicide for the year.

40-year-old Nathaniel Jackson was shot on the city’s West Side around 9 p.m Thursday. He was pronounced dead shortly after midnight. The victim’s family has confirmed his identity.

Chicago Police say Jackson was shot in the head while standing outside a convenience store at Augusta Boulevard and Lavergne Avenue in the Austin Neighborhood.

One relative told WGN that Jackson had recently been released from jail and was living with a friend on the West Side.

Circumstances surrounding the shooting remain unclear. No arrests have been made.

2008 was the last time Chicago reached 500 homicides.

The Chicago Police Dept released a statement disputing the number saying, “The Department’s official year to date 2012 murder total for the city of Chicago currently stands at 499, with one death investigation still pending classification. “

MY FAVORITE….

            Mimosa

Alright folks it is time to celebrate and you are tired of the same old mundane champagne.. Let’s spruce it up a bit.
What you will need:
Chilled Champagne of your liking, Triple Sec, cold orange juice, slice of orange (optional)
How to make it:
Grab those dusty champagne flutes that haven’t been used since last New Year’s and give them a run under the sink… They are about to see some serious action.
3 1/2 oz Chilled Champagne 1/2 oz Triple Sec 1 1/2 oz orange juice Garnish with a slice of orange for the fullest flavor
Recipe to flat? Try adding a splash of sparkling wine into the mix for an added boost of that tingling sensation you love so much

            Sex On The Beach

No worries… this drink is in no way a dirty or scandalous concoction. It is simply a vamped screwdriver with a twist. It is said that you have not lived until you have had a Sex On The Beach
What you will need:
Vodka (preferably something fruity, I like Three Olives, orange flavor), Peach Schnapps, cranberry juice, orange juice, Two cherries and an orange slice (optional)
How to make it:
Snatch any glass you have lying around and mix:
1 1/2 oz vodka 1/2 oz peach schnapps 2 oz cranberry juice 2 oz orange juice Garnish with two cherries connected by a toothpick and an orange slice
As previously stated try variations of vodka. Alter the recipe to your liking with different flavors of vodka: orange, watermelon, lemon etc.. I recommend Three Olives Vodka for any drink you are mixing. It is a high quality vodka at a more affordable cost than the renowned Grey Goose and Sky vodkas. Believe me you will learn to love Three Olives vodka.
