Happy Labor Day everyone! Today we are heading to a barbecue and enjoying these glorious cooler temperatures that have arrived in southern California just in time for the holiday weekend. But before we go, we had to share a delicious tropical cocktail for all your last-minute party-planning needs, a refreshing twist on the piña colada. It is incredibly easy to make and literally takes just thirty seconds in the blender. Here, light rum is mixed with cream of coconut, pineapple juice, passion fruit puree, freshly squeezed lime juice, and blended with ice to make a creamy and refreshing beverage inspired by the Puerto Rican classic. Garnished with a strawberry, a slice of pineapple, and a colorful paper umbrella, the only labor you’ll need to do today is print out this recipe and plug in your blender!
Is everyone ready? Okay, cue the music. Lights. Camera. Aaand action! Good morning ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the second installment of the Husbands That Cook Summer Cocktail series starring your hosts, Adam and Ryan. Every Friday at 10am PST for the next few weeks, we will be taking over the feedfeed’s snapchat and showing you how to make some of our favorite summer drinks. On last week’s exciting episode we traveled to tropical paradise and made these refreshing blackberry vanilla tequila mojitos filled with fresh blackberries, cool mint leaves and smooth tequila. For today’s show, we have something very special planned: the Island Sunrise, a riff on a classic Caribbean cocktail called a Painkiller. So let’s pack our bags, bring some light clothing, and set a course for the islands, where abundant sunshine and palm trees await us.
