“Club Tropicana drinks are free, fun and sunshine, there’s enough for everyone…”

(Well, unless I’m there. I can drink for England. There won’t be any drinks left once I’ve finished)

This is a fruity, refreshing little number which will make you feel (if you close your eyes, use your imagination, shut yourself in the airing cupboard where its warm and put some George Michael ‘Club Tropicana’ on…) like you’re on holiday on a tropical island. Maybe. I’m not making any promises on that one…

Malibu, Pineapple, Lime juice and Mint, all muddled together and served over ice.

Shave your legs ladies and get your shirts off fellas…summer is here in the UK (for today anyway).

Enjoy!
