I’m kind of not sure how it is already June and summer is in full swing. The temperatures are quite warm here in Florida, and regular ol’ cocktails melt quickly outside. What doesn’t melt? Well, frozen drinks are a good start. Sure, they melt eventually, but at least they don’t turn into a watered down mess of juice and alcohol in ten minutes or less.

How to Make a Pina Colada
This classic pina colada recipe combines my two favorites–coconut and pineapple. I could eat pineapple all day, every day. Sometimes, I do. Which reminds me, I have the COOLEST pineapple corer that I found at Williams-Sonoma. I highly recommend one if you are going to enjoy fresh pineapples this summer.
It’s kind of amazing. Just imagine what you can do with it! Anyway, you can find it at Williams-Sonoma for under $20. Win.
But, back to the drink. This is sure to be a new Sunday pool party favorite, and the cool flavors are perfect for summer. While I’m planning a family vacation for next week, I have a few cocktail recipes and Florida posts to share on this blog. From frozen drinks to 4th of July crafts, get ready for a few fun entries to welcome summer.
