Raspberry coconut drink

I’m back from two very busy weeks: my last hectic week at work before vacation (and my new job that I haven’t told you about yet) and my first week of vacation. Both combined with succeeding overnight guests at the house leaving no time for internet but for cooking and cleaning and washing. I’ve had a great time but I’m exhausted and I’m trying to catch some rest these days before more people will arrive.

One evening when we were still living in the city centre we decided to go to Hard Rock Café, just to share a Jumbo Combo. However as we didn’t have any reservation we had to wait at the bar sipping their different drinks. This very tasty and ice cold drink is inspired by a coconut and raspberry drink that I had that very evening. But of course this one is better :-)

    Rasberry Coconut drink
    (serves 2-4 depending on size of glasses)

    250 gram frozen raspberries, directly from the freezer
    400 ml (one can) unsweetened thai coconut milk
    1-2 tbsp caster sugar (preferably vanilla infused)
    200 ml Vodka

    Mix all ingredients in a mixer or food processor. Serve immediately.

    That jumbo combo looks like 1,000 or more calories. But thats the fun thing about those theme restaurants. I like the sound of your new drink!Congrats on the new job. Want to hear all about it. CS will be in Stockholm this week. Wish I were going too:-).

    Courtney: I hope it will taste good without the Vodka :-) Congrats to the baby.

    courtney: It probably has more calories than we can count :-) But as you say it’s fun :-) I hope you’ll be able to come to Sweden soon again.

    Is it possible to make this non-alcoholic?

    Sade: Yes, you can omit the alcohol and will then end up with a nice summer smoothie!
