It has been hot, Hot, HOT here in Durbs, South Africa! That's why they call us the country's "playground". And with it being so hot, my poor kids and hubby have been walking around with their tongues wagging out like good ole Fido. It got me thinking that doing some beverage recipes would be a great way to cool off. Now here I must add, I am a non-alcoholic. My idea of the puuurfect sundowner is a sweet cuppa tea - hell, I like tea so much that Craig has even threatened to install an IV Tea drip for me, hahaha. So with the alcoholic drinks, I've also added two non-alcoholic drinks too.
The Salty Chihuahua
I just love the way this rolls off the tongue! Its just so much fun to say!
To make this drink you will need: 1 litre tequila, 4 cups of lemonade, some lime juice and wedges, ice and some coarse salt. Use the lime juice to wet the rim of the glass, rub it in the coarse salt. Plop some ice blocks in the glass and pour in the tequila and lemonade. Squeeze in some lime juice, give it a stir and decorate with a lime wedge!
Choc Chip Banana Yogi-Gulp
1kg choc chip yoghurt
3 cups of milk
1 cup choc ice cream
3 bananas mashed finely.
This is my very own recipe for my girls. Just take all the ingredients and blend in a blender very well. Serve with a banana or a chocolate finger.
ITS FRIDAY tomorrow! WOOHOO! The perfect night for inviting your peeps over for dinner and trying out some Pina Colada and Salty Chihuahuas. But remember, don't drink and drive and always arrive alive!
Keep it cool, peeps!
