'Nilla Killas

Pin It!

It was 85 degrees this weekend and we decided against the beach because Brandon just had skin cancer spots taken out of his back. Instead, he whipped up some 'Nilla Killas (our favorite drink from the Virgin Islands) and we walked around our neighborhood and watched the sun lower over the ocean.
And of course Lucy sprinted to her heart's content.  
She could give Forest Gump a run for his money. This girl loves to run.

'Nilla Killas
We fell in love with this drink at the Soggy Dollar bar in the Virgin Islands last year.
3 oz Vanilla Rum
8 oz Pineapple Juice
4 oz Orange Juice
2 oz Cream of Coconut
(nutmeg on top)

Mix all together and pour over ice. Top with nutmeg,
and enjoy the taste of the caribbean.

Yums! Love the idea of bringing a tropical drink home with you. We have certain music that brings us straight back to our Costa Rican honeymoon....but add a drink to it? Even better!

lo @ crazy ever after said...

Boo for skin cancer, but happy B got himself taken care of. And Lucy. What can I say? That puppy girl is just awesome. Wish we could let Bobes off his leash, but he would take off running and probably never come back. And that might suck. A little.

Hailey Marie said...

That drink sounds like paradise! Will definitely be whipping that up soon. Your pup is adorable, those pictures of her running made me laugh out loud! So cute :)
