Staying Cool


Since we’ve started writing this blog, I’ve become interested in other blogs.  One of the first ones I visited is  The writer, Erin Gleeson, is a food photographer–beautiful blog.  Her blog mentions several other blogs including where I found a recipe for a deliciously refreshing drink.  I served it Sat. evening to three friends.  I enjoy sitting on my patio in the evening and just assume that everyone else does too.  I have to keep a can of Off handy, and it’s pretty warm, but that makes this drink all the more delightful!

Frozen Coconut Limeade

2 1/2 c. crushed ice

1 c. coconut milk

1/3 c. fresh lime juice

3 T. sugar

Combine ingredients and whip in blender until about the consistency of a frozen margarita.  Garnish with a slice of lime.  Best served with a straw.  For those who’d like a little zing, add a jigger of rum to each glass.  Serves 6-8.

I’m cooling off just thinking about it!
