Happy Friday!

If everything has gone according to my plan, I should be sipping an umbrella drink as we speak.

Well, not if you’re reading this at 7 am, because I plan to still be snoozing.

I am on vacation after all.

But by 5 o’clock, I plan to have something fruity and cocktail-like in my hand.

And since I do like to share, I made you one, too.  This is actually a non-alcoholic beverage {super great for entertaining on a hot summer day}, but if you add in some coconut rum, I won’t tell.  In fact, I recommended it.  I sampled it that way {for blogging research} and it was great.

Pineapple Agua Fresca
from Mexican Made Easy
  • 2 cups chopped fresh pineapple
  • 3 cups cold water
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, to taste
  • ice cubes
  1. Put the pineapple, cold water, vanilla, and sugar in a blender and process until smooth.
  2. Strain into a pitcher, pressing on the solids to extract all the liquid. Discard the solids. Serve over ice.

Have a wonderful, super, fabulous Friday!
