Today’s Gem of Gratitude #296

Today I am thankful for piña coladas. I am sure that it is no surprise by now that I like frozen fruity beverages. What can I say? I enjoy the refreshing and cooling nature that they possess. I also appreciate the fact that they can be easily transformed into non-alcoholic versions, which, in my opinion, tend to be tastier than their alcoholic counterparts. Another feature of frozen fruity beverages that I like is the fact that they somehow instantly bring a smile to my face the moment that I take that initial sip. Now, I do not know if it is a sense of nostalgia or something else that causes me to be overcome with such wonderful sensations when I partake of frozen fruity beverages, but whatever it is, I like it. And of all of the frozen fruity beverages that are out there, strawberry daiquiris (which you can read more about here) and piña coladas are my favorites.

Speaking of piña coladas, I had the opportunity to have dinner with a close friend of mine and her husband at their home recently, and what in addition to the tasty and healthy whole grain fettuccini topped with peppers, ground spicy Italian sausage, mushrooms, herbs, and shredded parmesan cheese was on the menu? You guessed it, piña coladas. And I must say that they were the best piña coladas that I have ever had. They were cool, refreshing, and oh so tasty. In fact, they were so tasty that I hope to have the opportunity to sample more again someday, and hopefully soon. And now that summer is here, you might want to consider substituting a cool and refreshing piña colada for one of your usual standby beverages. Who knows, the piña colada just might become your beverage of choice too. #lovebythedrop
