Normally I don’t feel the need to advertise when I’ve gotten a little bit of press or a shout-out from blogland, but this calls for an exception. I was super surprised-and psyched-when I found out that my favorite Laguna Beach alum mentioned one of my drink recipes on her website.
Clearly the girl has a lot of beverage drinking experience so I’m honored to be included in the list of her favorite ten drinks. Isn’t that photo on the left so classic LC?
Anyways, here’s another drink for everybody to enjoy. It has a much more complex flavor than your typical non-alcoholic beverage. It’s almost like a tropical spiced rum beverage- but without the alcohol. I think it would make the perfect summer party mocktail for expecting mommies, kids, or your favorite teetotaller.
Pineapple Cinnamon Cooler
Yield: 4 servings
* 3 cups water
* 1 cinnamon stick
* 3 cups pineapple juice
* 1/4 cup lime juice
* Cinnamon sticks, for garnish (optional)
Combine the water and cinnamon stick in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until reduced by a third. Let cool and add pineapple and lime juice. Refrigerate until well chilled. Pour into individual serving glasses and garnish with a cinnamon stick, if desired.
