There’s nothing wrong with a cold beer on a hot day but sometimes you’ve got to change shit up. Don’t let summer slip by without sipping on this refreshing son of a bitch. Plums, plucots, pluots, use whatthefuckever you can find. Any of these sweet ass stone fruits will work. Level up your libations, motherfucker.
STONE FRUIT SMASH
makes 2 drinks
2 plums or similar sized stone fruit
6 sprigs fresh thyme
4 ounces gin
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1-2 teaspoons agave or other liquid sweetener*
splash of tonic or soda water**
Cut the plums up into bite-sized pieces. Leave the skin on, don’t overthink this shit. Thrown them in a jar or large glass with a lid. Add the tiny ass branches of thyme, gin, lemon juice, sweetener, and a handful of ice to the jar and throw on the lid. Shake the ever-living fuck out of it until the ice smashes the fruit pieces and everything looks banged to hell. Strain out all the big chunks of fruit and thyme and pour the remaining drink into some glasses over ice. Everything should be all plum colored and looking fancy. You can drink this beautiful bastard as is but feel free to add a couple splashes of tonic if that’s you’re shit.
*If your fruit is sweet enough you can just leave this shit out. Do whatever tastes right to you.
** Optional but add this if you like your drinks to have a little less bite.

This review is from: The Rough Guide to Social Media for Beginners: Getting Started with Facebook, Twitter and Google+ (Rough Guide to…)
This is an amazingly thorough book for the size. I should point out that I have the print edition and would recommend this as you do need to look backwards or forwards to earlier or later points when reading. It covers Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn and Google Plus as well as a section on “Peripherals” such as Picasa and Digg. I have bought books on some of these separately but this little gem has all you could possibly need. It gives: the “feel” of each, its function and etiquette; details of usage; how to join in clear steps (including which bits you can change later); general expert advice on all aspects such as mobile usage (as well as how to block people or leave the site). The pages are attractively laid-out with some coloured tips, clear diagrams and illustrations so that you feel at home when you visit and the style is lucid and friendly. For a pocket-sized book it is truly astonishingly full and it will be my constant companion from now on."
