Piña Colada

Welcome to my redesigned blog! I finally got my own domain name (woohoo!!!) and for the past week I imported all the content of the Wordflux blog into this new Delicious Wordflux. Everyone who has been through this process knows what I’m talking about.
I bought a theme, actually I got three so anytime I get tired of this look I can switch. Well, I don’t think I’ll be changing very often as it requires a lot of work to put it all together and running. The fun part is to customize the minor details. I got a huge help from my husband on the most “technical” issues and I’m happy with the results.


I wanted a clean look in a magazine style website with a home page featuring a big size slider image. Basically, I needed a white canvas to style and configure exactly how I envisioned.
This theme is highly customizable and very functional. I hope you enjoy it as much as I am and please feel free to drop any suggestions or comments about what you like most.

To celebrate this launch I prepared a sweet rum-based cocktail that screams Summer from top to bottom. So put on your sandals and come cheer me with this fresh drink in a stress-free atmosphere open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Piña Colada

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Serves 2

 

1 cup crushed ice

1/2 fresh pineapple, peeled and cored

1/2 cup coconut cream

3 oz rum

pineapple wedges for garnishing

granulated sugar to garnish the glasses

 

Put the ice and half pineapple in the blender machine (I use a Vita-Mix) and press on high-speed until is well strained and the fresh juice extracted. Add rum and coconut cream and blend until combined.

Garnish the glasses with granulated sugar by pressing them upside down on the sugar (with the top wet with water, pineapple juice or lime juice) and top with pineapple wedges.

    I’d love to sip one of this right now! I bet they’re delicious with the fresh pineapple. I love the design of your blog — and your photography looks amazing! While I have my own domain, I have not braved the transfer over to wordpress, etc. Dreading the day…

    Your new site looks wonderful. Just wonderful. We started out owning our own so that it would not be such a problem because I know just what you mean. Since then I have bought several other doman names in case I want to branch out!!!! The drinks look fantastic.
