I have been searching through countless summer drinks, some with alcohol some without. When I saw the photo of this magnificent drink, I knew I had to blog about it! And it’s also perfect for August. Right as the summer is winding down, people want a refreshing summer drink to remind them of summer for just a little while longer.
I know when summer comes to an end every year, I think we all get the blues just a little bit. Soon we will be missing those long summer nights, when darkness begins at 5 PM. Since it is the end of August, September is a month that is truly made for fall. So this is the last couple of weeks that we can do some summer things, and feel good about it. Like the pineapple mango lemonade above, with darling orchids and umbrellas for decor, doesn’t it just say, “Drink Me”? It does for me!

“Slightly sweetened sticky rice with a hint of coconut topped with sliced strawberries and mangoes. A little twist to the traditional mango sticky rice, this dessert is simple to make and delicious, perfect for an indulgence after dinner.”
“I love mango sticky rice. It’s one of the things I look forward to when I eat at Thai restaurants. One of the things I look forward to but almost never order because I’m too full from dinner. Now, if I can make it at home, then I can have it any time I want, right?”
“There are two ways to do this, both of which are pretty simple. If you have a rice cooker, cook the sticky rice or short grain rice the way you normally would. Then add the rice and coconut milk to a skillet over low heat. Once the coconut milk has been incorporated, remove the rice from heat. Plate the sticky rice and top with strawberries and mangoes.” – Cooking With a Wildflower Blog
