Honey and Cinnamon Pina Colada

Lord knows how long I have been waiting for the sun to come out! After months of grey skies and layers of sweaters, I can finally soak in the sun and wear all those cute dresses that were kept at the back of my closet. With this weather too comes the soft beaconing call of fresh fruits, juicy roasted meats and chilled drinks. And for me, nothing would be more welcome to sooth my dry throat in this September heat than my Honey and Cinnamon Pina Colada.

This is a fresh pina colada made from ingredients you can readily find. One single sip will take you straight to your dream tropical getaway. It is creamy, delicious and deeply refreshing.

Stop and taste. If you want more sweetness add some honey and pulse it. You can sieve it if you please, but I preferred mine a lot chunkier.

Pour into some glasses, garnish with some pineapple and drizzle some honey on top and sip away :)). Really, how easy was that??!
