It’s a long weekend and sometimes it just feels nice to be lazy. I keep hearing from my friends that the trend of staycation is catching up, where you enjoy a vacation at home. A nice vacation is incomplete without some wonderful drink, so here I give a simple recipe of a breezy drink and its name is enough to get you excited. ‘Virgin Pina Colada’ is a cool refreshing drink made with tropical fruits like pineapple and coconut. These fruits are easily available all around the year and just taste yummy. The fruits juices are strained in to the drink with some crushed ice and decorated with pineapple slice. It is possibly one of the best drinks to be enjoyed by a pool side in warm weather. It goes well with adults and the kids are sure to love its appealing taste. So get ready for a nice long well deserved vacation at home and make yourself an equally well deserved delicious Virgin Pina Colada.
