Portland was hit with a heat wave. Just to be clear I am not complaining. Sometimes I like to pretend I live in SoCal and it’s always nice when the weather cooperates with my imagination. Whilst pretending I live in SoCal (or Mexico or Hawaii or anywhere sunny with a beach really…) I need something tropical to sip on. Need may be a stretch but just go with me here. You know those yummy tropical drinks that taste like a pineapple and a coconut had a baby? I love those drinks. And if you say you don’t, you’re lying. But usually those drinks are like a million calories. And hello! Summer is basically here. Those tropical drinks are not helping me get a bikini body. (of course, neither are any of these recipes…) But that’s when I had my epiphany! Melissa turned me on to the coconut flavor of La Croix a while ago. I had a full box of them in my fridge when it hit me: Why couldn’t I just add some pineapple flavored vodka and a squeeze of lime for a super low calorie tropical treat? Guess what? I could! And I did! And guys- It’s sooooooo delicious! Husband approved and everything. Go out there and bring the beach to your kitchen without feeling a shred of guilt about the calories.
