I am currently in Bamako the capital of Mali where it's hot as hell but thanks to the daily rain it's not as bad as it was I heard in April... anywhoo it's summer, fruits season , juice seasons so I figured why not make a cool post about
easy drinks we could make:)

-I'm a big Pina Colada fan without alcohol for me since I'm Muslim but I'm it's as good or even better with alcohol for those of u who drink:)

So here's the Pina Colada recette:

You will need

*1 blender
*3 tbsps on crushed pineaples
*3 tbsps of coconut cream (or coconut milk)
*3 oz of light rum if u want to add alcohol

Ready... put it all in the blender with a little bit of crushed ice blendddd it all in, pour it in a cup, put your feet up and relax!!

-What about a mangoe passion fruit drink
You will need

*1 blender
*2 mangoes (or mangoe juice)
*150 ml of passion fruit juice
You can also replace the passion fruit with pineaples if you would like

Same thing..blender action with a bit crushed ice!

-I've always been curious abt cosmopolitans cosmos I guess lol , I'll never be able to taste them but for those of u who are interested

You will need:

*60ml vodka

*30ml crème de cassis
*30ml cointreau
*15ml lemon juice

Shake it all in a cocktail shaker sounds fancy and voilaaaaa lol! (I'm having fun with this post)

-What about a Licuado de Leche (never heard of this Mexican drink before but...)
You will need lol....

*1 cup of milk
*1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
*3/4 cup of fruits such as strawberry,papaya, guava (sounds interesting)
Shake it all in a blender and drink away!

So I found these cool drink recipes in the following sites, have fun:
