Beautiful, hot, hot days we’ve been having here in Calgary. I’m trying to appreciate it as much as I can before it gets cold and snowy for 8 months. As much as I love the summer – not having to worry about bundling up when you leave your house, going for walks, wearing dresses, and being warm – I do love cold cozy winters. And thank God I do; anyone that lives in 8 months of winter and hasn’t learned to love it (for the most part) should really just move somewhere warmer. I have to say, Calgary winters are especially enjoyable to me because they are full of sun. I personally prefer the freezing cold with lots of sun, rather than the mild, but dark and sunless winters of Vancouver (where I used to live). You’ll hear much more about our winters in a few months, but for now let’s focus on the hot summer.
When I made these drinks a few days ago it was super hot in our apartment and these were the most heavenly way to cool down. For the past two days though, Calgary’s been pummelled with thunderstorms, so it hasn’t been all that hot, but I’m still glad, as I enjoy summer storms with thunder and lightening.
Alrighty, lets move on to the sweet drinks!
