Perhaps I should have been more clear. I had "poor mans preserved feijoa" from a jar which has since been emptied, and which was no doubt smuggled into the country.

Still the bomb tho.

The season is like March to June yeah?

Handy Feijoa in Fitzroy Hint Number One
Step 1: Purchace the largest tub of lemon sorbet from Trampoline you can
Step 2: Quickly move to the Black Cat
Step 3: Get a bowl and put said sorbet in bowl
Step 3: Purchace one (or two!) shots of feijoa vodka and put in bowl
Step 4: Mix
Step 5: Enjoy


Also good with Tequila styles.

Aww man, wicked.

I like your Fitzroy styles. Although, I sometimes find the people in Trampoline a bit much to deal with.

honestly, not a fan of the Fejoia 42 Below. I really liked the passionfruit one though. good stuff when mixed with soda!!

now that I know what they look like I realised I used to have a Fejoia tree in my front yard when I was a kid.

What are people's favourite flavours at Trampoline? Coincidentally i had a lemon, mango, caramelised pear waffled cone last night. Was pretty damn good.

Guano ('gwä-"no )- (n) : a substance composed chiefly of the excrement of seafowl and used as a fertilizer; also : a similar substance (as bat excrement or cannery waste) especially when used for fertilizer.



mmmmmm sounds great... mixed with ummm let's see Absinthe :idea:
we could call it Bat Shit and noone would believe us ;)
