Can’t travel to the islands? No problem. I created this refreshing drink that will bring the scent of tropical flowers, sea breezes and relaxing days and carefree nights right to your door! If you have time, let this drink sit over night to allow the flavors to ‘marry’ and it’s even better.
1 can frozen pink lemonade (do not add water listed on directions on the can)
1 can frozen guava strawberry or guava raspberry juice (do not add water listed on can)
1 can mango lemonade (do not add water listed on directions on the can)
6 cups cold water
2-3 Tbl. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. rum extract
1/2 tsp. coconut extract
1 Tbl. vanilla extract
Combine all the ingredients in a pitcher and for best results let chill for 6-24 hours. Serve chilled.
