MINI PINA COLADA COCKTAILS? Um, yes please! These are the sweetest little drinks. I don’t know about you but we are freezing here in Paris and dreaming about the beach…
We still have at least a few weeks of cold weather in front of us, but with these teeny tiny pina colada cocktails you are sure to feel like you are sitting poolside or lying on the beach!
No matter what the weather and no matter where you happen to be in the World, these little cocktails are sure to bring the sunshine to you!
It snowed this past weekend and we went for a snowy and romantic walk through some of our favorite streets of Paris in Montmartre. We walked up the hill towards the Sacre Coeur. We crossed the Place du Tertre where artists sit and paint (even when it’s snowing!) and we passed the Dali Museum and the cabart of the Lapin Agile. We had a perfect snowy day in this city that we love so much!
We came home just in time for “apéro” – an evening drink with delicious little bites to eat. On a Saturday evening, we would typically have a glas or two of red wine but last weekend we were in the mood for a tropical cocktail!
Hugo decided to make a surprise cocktail and these mini pina colada cocktails were the delicious result!
We hope you love these little cocktails as much a we did! They are sweet and tropical and sure to give you en energy boost to get you through the rest of the Winter. If you’re having friends over, you could serve these darling little pina colada cocktails with a spinach and cheese pide or a yummy bowl of guacamole.
What is the weather like where you live and where do you want to go on your next vacation? You already know it’s snowing here in Paris and we want to go to Italy for our next vacation! In the meantime, we’ll be enjoying one (or three!) of these little pina colada cocktails under a cozy wool blanket! Mamma Mia!
