What I’m about to show you is not only the secret to happiness but super healthy for your mind, body, soul and end of vacation.
My sister Safiya and I discovered something incredible this summer: a blender.
And with this blender, and the help of a former bartender, we created the most amazing drink in the world: the Piña Colito. If you haven’t already guessed, it’s basically a mix between two of my favorite alcoholic drinks: Piña Colada and Mojito except that we replaced rum with vodka just ’cause life.
So here’s the most guesstimated version of the Piña Colito cocktail:
Ingredients: Serves 2
-8 mint leaves
-1 ½ cups of water
-1 cup of coconut milk
–½ a pineapple (chopped in pieces)
-1 cup of pineapple juice
-1 cup of brown sugar (optional)
–½ a lime’s juice
-A pinch of cinnamon powder
-1 cup of vodka (or add another cup of water if you want a virgin cocktail)
Put everything in the blender except for the ice. Press the button. Stop the blender. Pour into a chilled glass full of ice. DRANK.
Upsides: The virgin Piña Colito is super healthy. You can drink it instead of a meal because it’s pretty filling. You can add greens like spinach or kale, and it may taste better/worse.
Downsides: It’s really filling. Like really really. So have it for dessert or dinner or something.
