This summer has been great for northern Europe. Since I've been living in the Netherlands (which is now almost 8 years) I have never seen so many sunny days in a row in this country! This called for many summery drinks such as this one I originally found on Sasha's Instagram page.
The drink is a a fruity and sweet nod to tropical drinks with ingredients you could typically find in a piña colada. The addition of velvet falernum makes for a nice touch and the colour given by the blue Curaçao syrup is stunning too. It will taste better if sipped by the pool!
