Ok, I think we can all agree, it’s hot. It is, indeed, summertime after all.

So instead of posting pictures of your dashboard thermostat on facebook (please stop, btw. kthanksbye.), complaining to your coworkers, and not even wanting to get up to take a shower because it’s “just too hot” (ok, so that last one might have been me…), just embrace the heat.

Come home from work, change into some comfy shorts, turn on some Jimmy Buffett, and sip something cold and fruity. Preferably this pineapple sparkler. It’s fruity, bubbly, refreshing, and most importantly, loaded with booze (in case you’ve just spent 20 minutes trying to get an itty bitty polkadot swimsuit on a 5 month old with unusually sweaty feet and flailing legs and arms.) 😉

Pineapple Sparklers

2 parts Sprite or other lemon-lime soda
1 part pineapple juice
1 part pineapple vodka
splash banana rum
squeeze of fresh lime juice

Stir all ingredients together. Serve over ice.

  1. Um, yum! This sounds amazing! However, I’m still going to complain about the heat ;). And I hear ya with the swimsuit on babes! Why little boy swimsuits have mesh lining I have no idea, but my son tends to think he needs both feet in one hole for some reason!

  2. Hahha THANK YOU for the pictures of car thermostats on facebook. Really, we know how hot it is outside. I don’t need proof that you are cool enough to have a car with a thermometer in it.

    Oh, and the drink looks delicious 🙂
