Sam, Leiarna and baby Jaxon came round after school for lunch, playtime and dinner and I thought it a perfect time for some cocktails...
I provided the ingredients and Sam came armed with the decorations.
We started with a fruit smoothie, banana, mango, orange juice and ice. They enjoyed helping to make it, putting the chopped fruit into the blender and pressing the button.
The smoothies were not a huge hit with the kids but we enjoyed them as I made the next round, a child friendly take on one of one of my all time favourites.
'Sandcastles on the Beach'
1 cup orange juice
1 cup apple juice
1 cup lemonade
splash of grenadine
Straws, cocktail umbrellas, stirrers etc...
Half fill the glasses with the crushed ice and pour a little grenadine into each glass.
Put the rest of the ingredients in a blender and whizz for a few seconds until nice and frothy.
Pour over the grenadine and ice and add straws and decorations.
Leo and Leiarna loved their special drinks, a fab way to celebrate the start of summer!
