Tropical Smoothie Inspired by Key West #FLKEYS

Tropical Smoothie

We have immediate family in the US and that is one of the earnest driving factors for us. But things never fell in place for a long long time, either the visa’s did not get approved for some silly reason ( The officer alone knows why) or the holidays never collided. Our kids are growing up, so we need to work on our holidays revolving around the school vacations. After every 6 weeks of schooling, we do have a week and 2.5 weeks off alternatively… This break is most sought after by parents here and I am no different. With regular intervals in our system, we often enjoy the routine very much and look forward to it. So our summer holidays are limited to 6 weeks in total which in opposed to anywhere in the world is quite different. My niece’s have a brief holiday period of 3 months from Mid-May to the end of July whilst in UK, it begins after the 20th of July to end of August. It’s just 10 days of overlapping period !!! For the rest of the 10 days, we have got my brother and family with their cute little daughter who has still to begin her schooling.

Cranberry Mojito – Holiday Mocktail

Cranberry Mojito - Holiday Mocktail

Cranberry Mojito is absolutely refreshing and colorful, perfect as a Holiday Mocktail.  Mood and festivity jazz up with this color burst mocktail.

For the first time probably in some time, I had a gadgetless break, leaving behind my phone and emails for 5 full days!!! No blogging, no facebook, no WhatsApp, no emails, no phone calls.  Yes, it was intentional and I did not connect to wifi anywhere!! We visited Amsterdam for Christmas holidays, spending time with very close friends doing the bestest things in leisure, a bit of sightseeing and some shopping that includes props too.. Evenings were well spent cooking quick one pot meals and then chitchatting over the dining table for hours, talking bout yesteryears and the good fun we have had over years. Kiddos were kept occupied handing over a gadget each, leaving some peaceful time for ourselves…

Blackcurrant Apple Mocktail drink can be shaken up in 10 minutes with Blackcurrant Juice, Limeade concentrate and sparkling apple juice

Never realised that I am enjoying splashing and mix matching the fruit juices and lemonade into a funtasting concoction. When my first assignment to post mocktail recipes came through, I literally went shopping for drinks and the best combo that can fit in… Probably in years for the first time I was hanging around the juices section for a longer duration than normal, that my missy told me – “Lets go ma ” ..We have ticked our list.

Pomegranate Mojito

For some reason, I still feel we are in mid September. The weather has been fabulous last week, infact it felt so much like Indian summer . All that the weather demanded was some cool breezy clothing and a glass of cocktail / mocktail and laze in the garden. Play with the kiddos , paint some prop boards and just enjoy the last lag of bonus weather.  But nothing of that sort happened !!
