Passionate Pineapple

It’s been a while.  Sorry,

I know you have still been drinking.

Wine, Beer, a  Whiskey Bubbler or two. That’s fine to survive  a dreary spring.

Nothing wrong with these basic drinks.  Are  you feeling  a little bored?  I am.  Since summer has finally arrived, I have swept away the basic blahs.  Now is the time  I can dream and create.

This drink debuted at a brunch I had.  Served a Ricotta, Leek and Olive tart, Salmon dip and a grilled chicken salad.  Perfect for this weather.  Hints of Hibiscus and Passion fruit in the tea pair well with the Pineapple Vodka. 10 of us went through 2 pitchers, at 11:30 am.

The Smirnoff Sourced vodka is less sweet than the old flavored vodkas. The flavor is a fresher pineapple taste. I highly recommend it and can’t wait to try the other flavors.
