My dear co-worker, on Friday of Memorial Day weekend, saw all the boats in a row on her way to work. They were, of course, ready for the river and full of laughter. The most memorable boat, just had to be, "The Friki Tiki" and though she had to curse as she passed them because, like me, she was on her way to work while everyone else on the 10 freeway was on the way to the river, I just had to invent a drink to erase my memory of work on Monday, my long awaited day off work!!!
Here is that gem, and boy did it work!
Muddling some raspberries, then I ran them through a strainer to get those seeds out of the equation!
I started with Ice, Vodka ( I know, I love vodka-honestly,to anyone else White Rum would taste better, so feel free to substitute) and then added GUAVA PINEAPPLE juice...my new obsession!
Then I added the fresh raspberry juice that I made, stirred and topped with whipped cream and some coconut that I toasted in the oven. It tastes like Hawaii; just what I needed to forget about a long work week and put the friki in the tiki!
A hibiscus from my front yard completed the look! Thanks to the hubs with the green thumb!
Ahhhh! So refreshing! Ready for some pool action!
Cheers to a happy Memorial Day! Hope you all had a great one!
