Its getting warmer and warmer every day... and its just the first day of April!
I am seriously dreading the onslaught of a reaally HOT summer in the days to come.
And believe me, the sun is relentless here in the deserts.
Oh well, as we cant really run away from where we are living for the moment, we try to make our lives easier in other ways.
So we have already moved onto cold coffees, shakes and smoothies, iced tea and lemonade...
And of course this really pretty drink when you want to throw a party and WOW the guests!
This was a showstopper in our Sea-Themed Party that we had last year and I had promised to put up the drink recipe on my blog ASAP.
well here it is.
Now this is the recipe for just one glass, so its easier to understand.
1 tall glass
1/2 a cup pine apple juice
1 cup (appr.) lemon flavored fizzy drink-Sprite and Limca
a dash of Blue Caracao
Lots of ice
a sprig of mint, a curl of lemon peel, or a slice of fresh pineapple for garnishing
1- Fill the tall glass with ice
2- Pour the pineapple juice
3- Pour in the lemon drink so it fills the glass.
4- Add a dash of (approx 1 tbsp) of Blue Caracao
and let the Blue Caracao float all the way to the bottom, leaving a beautiful gradient behind.
5- Dont stir it, just garnish with fruits, or lemon peel, slice of lemon and mint and serve at once.
