what to drink when you’re melting…mango coladas of course!

Holy heat people!

I mean really.  I have no words for how hot it is this week except for…thank god for AC.

I grew up without AC.  We had fans in every windows, we had walls made of stone, but let’s not kids ourselves people…it was really freakin’ hot.  Sheets stuck to your back kind of hot.  Sweat dripping down your forehead hot.  Did I wet the bed?…nope it’s just that hot.

When I tell people that I grew up in Maryland without AC and they look at me like…”why aren’t you skinnier from all that sweating?”

and you know what…they’ve got a pretty good point.

Maybe it was because I learned how to drink beverages like the Mango Coladas when it was this hot.  I can guarantee that they’ll keep you cool…and distracted from the heat!

what you need:

2 cups frozen mango margarita chunks

1 cup coconut milk

1/2 cup confectioners sugar

2 limes, juiced

3 cups ice

1 cup rum (less or more as you need)

what to do:

put mango, coconut milk, sugar and lime, blend until smooth.

add ice.  blend again until smooth

add rum. blend until smooth

serve and enjoy.
