We just went from here....enjoying the pool, beach and beautiful views in Cabo San Lucas and delicious frozen cocktails like the Miami Vice. (Half Piña Colada half Strawberry Daiquiri and one hundred percent yum.)
To home......where we're getting ready for the first day of school. Which is of course exciting. But it means summer is over and we're back to our school routine - less freedom and fun. We'll need some date nights on the patio with home-made versions of the Miami Vice cocktail!!
Elli was a nervous chatter box in anticipation of her first day of middle school, which is today.
She lay in bed quizzing me on multiplication tables.
"Is eleven times eleven one hundred and twenty one?" she shouted from her room.
"Is eleven times twelve one hundred and thirty two?
Did I cheat by looking up the answer on my iphone. Maybe.
"Yay! I'm doing math problems in my head!" she said.
"Mom, what's two divided by three?"
"Good night, Elli." please stop quizzing me!! I'm starting to sweat.
What am I going to do when she starts quizzing me on algebra?
MIAMI VICE COCKTAIL RECIPE
Bacardi 151 Rum
Master of Mixes Pina Colada Mix
Finest Call Strawberry Puree
Mixing the Drink:
Start with the piña colada. Put 1½ scoops of crushed ice in the blender. Add 2½ ounces of the 151 rum and 8 ounces of the piña colada mix. Blend for 30 seconds. Pour the blended liquid into a mixing glass or a large cup.
Next prepare the strawberry Daiquiri. Follow steps 1-4 again, replacing the piña colada with your strawberry daiquiri mix instead.
Pour the piña colada mix in the glass, followed by the strawberry daiquiri mix. Pour it very carefully and be sure that the red strawberry mix will not combine with the white piña colada mix, so you can form a horizontal design.
