It’s Official…Summer Time Is HERE!!!
It’s officially summer and I am not only sharing this list for my readers, but for myself. Because I’m not swimsuit ready, I am on the hunt for something that I will feel comfortable in…no matter my size. So here are some very cute suits for every size, enjoy this list with me
What’s a sexy swimsuit without a nice cold adult “beverage”
- 10 ounce (1 1/4 cups) citrus-flavored vodka
- 1/2 cup Rose’s lime juice
- 2 cups cranberry juice
- 4 ice cube trays
Combine vodka, lime juice, and cranberry juice in a pitcher with 2 cups water and stir to blend. Divide between ice cube trays and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight (the drink cubes will freeze only partially). Just before serving, empty trays into a large bowl and using a fork, break up cubes to loosen ice crystals (the ice will be slushlike). Spoon slush into tall stemmed glasses and serve immediately.
- 5 peeled kiwifruit, divided
- 3 cups ice
- 1/4 cup light rum
- 1/4 cup Midori (melon-flavored liqueur)
- 3 tablespoons Cream of Coconut (such as Coco Lopez)
- 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
Cut 4 kiwifruit into quarters, and place in a blender. Set remaining kiwifruit aside. Add ice and remaining ingredients to blender; process until smooth. Strain mixture through a sieve into a pitcher; discard seeds. Divide evenly among 6 glasses. Cut remaining kiwifruit into 6 slices; garnish each glass with 1 kiwifruit slice.
- premium vanilla ice cream
- few tablespoonfuls of creamy porter or stout
- fresh raspberries
- fresh mint sprigs
Top premium vanilla ice cream with a few tablespoonfuls of a creamy porter or stout (such as Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout). Add a sprinkle of fresh raspberries and a fresh mint sprig for a quick and creative dessert.
