We’ve had our fair share of hot, sticky, summer days the last couple weeks. When I’m laying out by the pool with a passionfruit lime cooler those days are very welcome. When I’m headed to the office and have to dress for the arctic because of the inevitable office a/c wars but then sweat my booty off the second I step back outside, they are not so welcome. The heat is also not so appreciated on the days I have to pay the electric bill. Gah. One AMAZING thing: we have a brand new air conditioner. Praise the Lord, Hallelujah! In our almost 9 years of marriage, this is our first home that has central air and it broke mid-summer #welcometomyworld Thankfully, it’s fixed and wonderful and hopefully our electric bill won’t be quite so horrendous. How we survived those first 9 years without killing each other or sweating to death, I’m not sure.
Central air is a necessity when you live in the So Cal heat of a valley. Man, am I oh so thankful for a/c and passionfruit lime coolers. This drink happened on a whim. We happened to have Passionfruit La Croix (thanks to my crazy day of shopping at Target), vodka and some limes –> enter the Passionfruit lime cooler. You’ll love how light, fresh and bubbly it is. And, per the name, it totally cools ya down.
If you haven’t heard of or tried La Croix, it’s a MUST. PROS: It’s Whole30 approved (yay for keeping me sane the last 30+ days); its ingredients consist of sparkling water + natural flavor and that’s it (yum); it makes you feel like you’re drinking a soda minus all the sugar and horribleness for your bod; sometimes you just need to pop a can open; there are tons-o-flavors that I can’t wait to try; it pairs perfectly with some vodka to make a better-for-you-but-still-amazingly-delicious cocktail. CONS: Zip! Seriously, go get some. Target has the biggest variety, as long as I didn’t beat ya there.
- ½ can Passionfruit La Croix
- Squeeze of lime juice (approximately 1 Tablespoon)
- 1 shot Vodka (1½ for an extra bad day)
- Ice cubes
- Add ice, vodka, La Croix & lime juice to a glass. Stir and enjoy!
