If you like Piña Coladas! …. la la la…National Piña Colada Day, July 10,2020

Perfect weather here in for an icy cold tropical drink at cocktail hour! 

? If you like Piña Coladas! ?⁠

Who’s getting ready for National Piña Colada Day on July 10th? ? Enjoy this fruity drink as you sit back by the pool and soak in the sun ☀️⁠

Barrachina, a restaurant in Puerto Rico, says that “a traditional Spanish bartender Don Ramon Portas Mingot in 1963 created what became the world’s famous drink: the Piña Colada.”

How to make a Barrachina Piña Colada

If you follow Barrachina’s recipe. 

  1. Mix four parts pineapple juice with one part Coco Lopez or Goya coconut cream
  2. Blend for 30 to 40 seconds with 3/4-part water, then put the mixture in the freezer, stirring occasionally until it achieves your desired thickness. (If you want to blend it with a scoop of ice instead, then skip the water.)
  3. Pour your desired amount of rum — Reyes suggested a shot; I suggest a couple — into the bottom of your glass. To make it authentic, use Ron del Barrilito, Puerto Rico’s oldest and most cherished rum.
  4. Pour the slushy mix on top, then decorate with a cocktail-umbrella-stabbed maraschino cherry and pineapple chunk.
National Pina Colada Day, July 10th,2020

Perhaps a Piña Colada Ice lolly is more your speed!

Pina Colada ice lolly recipe from BBC Food.
Pina Colada ice lolly recipe from BBC Food.

450g fresh pineapple chunks
4 tbsp Malibu
zest and juice ½ lemon
2 tbsp icing sugar
100ml coconut cream, plus 2 tbsp extra for dipping
2 tbsp desiccated coconut

Whizz the pineapple in a food processor until it is quite smooth but still has some texture. 

Add the Malibu, 2 tbsp lemon juice zest, icing sugar and coconut cream and whizz again to combine. Taste the mixture – it should be sweet and sharp. Add more lemon juice or icing sugar if needed.

Divide between the lolly moulds and freeze for 1 hr until thick enough to hold a lolly stick upright. Push a lolly stick most of the way into each mould and freeze for another 6-8 hrs until solid.

Meanwhile toast the coconut flakes in a dry pan until they are a light golden colour. 

Pull the lollies by their sticks to remove them from the mould. If they are stuck dip the mould in hot water for 10 secs and try again. 

Dip the tip of each lolly in the extra coconut cream then roll in the desiccated coconut. 

Either serve straightaway or wrap each lolly in baking parchment and store in individual airtight freezer bags for up to 1 week.

Enjoy!! ?

National Lobster Day

Celebrate National Lobster Day, June 15th, 2020

Today’s Lobster facts:

  1. Lobsters aren’t all red. They can be many different colors, including bright blue, white and brilliant gold tones.
  2. They can be right-handed, left-handed, or ambidextrous.
  3. Many species can live to be over 100 years old.
  4. Most travel over 100 miles a year and have migratory patterns.

What type of wine goes with lobster?

The number one wine to pair with them is hands-down Chardonnay. Consider the palate profile of most international Chardonnay wines whether they are from Burgundy or California, Chile or Australia—Chardonnay often highlights its own innate citrus nuances both in the aromatic components and in flavor

What kind of red wine goes with lobster?

In general, look to lighter styles of wines, such as a crisp dry rosé wine from any variey (typically Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault in France) and the lighter styles of Pinot Noir to pair with more delicately cooked white fish, poached salmon, and seafood such as oysters, crab, lobster, and mussels.

Pier53 Restaurant National Lobster Day

How do you boil the perfect lobster?

Bring water to a rolling boil over high heat. Place lobsters in the pot (head first), cover tightly, return to a boil as quickly as possible and start counting the time. Steam a lobster for 7 minutes per pound, for the first pound. Add 3 minutes per pound for each additional pound thereafter.

What is lobsters favorite food?

Lobsters usually move around and hunt for food at night. It was once thought that lobsters were scavengers and ate primarily dead things. However, researchers have discovered that lobsters catch mainly fresh food (except for bait), which includes fish, crabs, mussels, sea urchins, and sometimes even other lobsters!

At Home With The Wine Ladies featured July 2008! Celebs Suburban Stars! Throwback Thursday

"Celebs Suburban Stars" from Suburban Life Magazine

Celebs Suburban Stars from Suburban Life Magazine.

Our good friend Kathryn Kates contributing writer for and The Toronto Star’s Saturday At Home With columnist asked us if we would like to showcase our homes in the magazine. We thought what a great way for people to get to know us a little bit more.

Although we are close as sisters and live close to each other,one street over and ten houses down, our decorating styles couldn’t be more different. We each have our own distinct styles.

Georgia’s style is more modern, sleek and minimalist. She likes clean lines and big sunny windows. Just like her smile and personality.

Susanne tends to be a little over dramatic from time to time maybe even a bit flamboyant. Romance is very important to me.

Although our home decorating styles are different we agree when we pick a wine for dinner. Georgia’s wine cellar at home is fully stocked with a great selection f over 5000 bottles.

For other celebrity home features you can read Kathryn’s articles and stories in The Toronto Star every Saturday as well as 6 times a year in Suburban Life.
