Piña Colada Day.

Who wouldn't like some pure frozen bliss on these hot, hot,hazy and lazy summer days?
Smoothies and chillers simply wont do it!
That's why we all should celebrate National Piña Colada Day this Saturday.
Here's the recipe of the original Piña Colada:
2 oz of rum (dark or white)
1/2 cup of pineapple cubes or pineapple juice.
Blend all ingredients with 2 cups of ice.
Strain into a hurricane glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry and a pineapple wedge.

With Piña Colada you can use your imagination when it comes down to the wide variation of flavors.
Cheers everyone and have yourself a Happy Piña Colada Day!

Fourth of July

For those who live in the US...., the biggest holiday of the summer is here.
Happy Fourth of July! - Let the freedom ring!
It's sizzling outside, the humidity is brutal, but we are all out enjoying a cookout, somewhere with friends lots of beers, light cocktails.
So far on the TV we are getting near the end of the World Cup of Soccer in South
Africa and the Tour de France has just started in the Netherlands, the same country
who eliminated "my Brazil"..., the power house of soccer!
I was upset for a little while, but an iced cold beer and some Cape Codders did the
trick and I just moved on.
A Cape Codder is a very American drink, and I think it can compliment the occasion.
The easiest of all cocktails;
Cape Cod:

1 oz or maybe 1 1/2 oz of vodka.....(if you want a little stronger)
Fill it up with cranberry juice
A lime wedge for garnishing.
Cheers! - Have a happy 4Th of July everyone and don't forget the fire works later on!
