Since we are packing to go on our Alaskan holiday, and bundling our sweaters, long pants and hiking boots in suitcases, we Deans can't but notice our thoughts are drifting to the Caribbean. Who did we think we were when we planned this vacation? We are warm weather mermaids, not snow bunnies. Oh, what to do?
First thing on our to do list is to make a big strong drink. Eureka! It just dawned on us! Nothing says warm weather like a Pina Colada (unless it's Chicken Cane Garden from our book.) As we finish packing, we find our taste buds totally tricked and we imagine the plane is flying south instead of north. Check back next week to see what we drink when we get to Alaska.
Thanks Diary! You are always such a big help.
PINA COLADA Deans' Style
2-3 ounces light rum
2 ounces Coco Lopez (cream of coconut)
2 ounces Pineapple Juice
Cubes of ice
1. Alternatively puree Pina Colada in blender.
2. If using cubes of ice you may top drink with some soda water, if you feel it needs some leavening.
