This leaves me longing for a tropical getaway. Since that clearly isn’t happening any time soon I had to make due. This desire crept into my cooking with Tropical Granola last weekend.
Yesterday it was nearly 80 degrees. Didn’t we just have ice last week?! The tropics were calling me again, this time my yearning was to include my new blueberry rum my husband brought home from Puerto Rico last month.
At first I was thinking a mojito. I love mango mojitos so I was thinking along the lines of a blueberry mango mojito. Then I thought about pineapple, banana and orange juice.
I decided to go for a frozen type drink. Not completely like a frozen margarita or smoothie, but close. Remember, it was almost 80 here and I was a little hot playing outside with the kids! So I fixed myself this drink and off to the wrap around porch I went. I hope you enjoy it too!
Place the fruit and orange juice in a blender. Mix until fruit is in a pulp or “mash” form. Add the liquors and blend thoroughly. Pour in a glass and add as much seltzer as desired.
You could also use fresh fruit and ice if desired.
