Aloha people of the internet.  It’s time to don your grass skirts, your leis and start shimmying those hips in a vague approximation of the hula because we’re off to Hawaii with this lovely Frangelico Luau.  Well, actually I’m off to Perth but a holiday is a holiday right?  Also, winter has arrived in Melbourne, its cold, gloomy, dark, rainy and miserable.  So a reminder of sun, sand and tropics is also in order! 

Frangelico LuauI found the recipe for the Frangelico Luau in the Feb / March edition of Vogue Entertaining and Travel.  It’s a three ingredient taste o’ the tropics that is pretty to look at and yummy to drink.  And guaranteed to bring some sunshine into the darkest winter day!

Frangelico Luau2The Frangelico Luau has only three ingredients – Frangelico, Pineapple Juice and Grenadine so it is relatively light in alcohol.  This is a great holiday drink because it is one you can sip all afternoon without getting too drunk to enjoy the evening!  I would have been a bit dubious about the combination of hazelnut, pineapple and pomegranate but it works! 

There are a few more lovely sounding Frangelico cocktails from the same advertisement so there may be a few more appearing here soon!

 Gotta run, both metaphorically and literally – my plane leaves in a couple of hours and I have yet to pack and I also want to stretch my legs before the four-hour flight!

Have a wonderful week!
