It may be September, but it’s still summer and temperatures still reach the 90s in the southern half of the USA. Happily, the stores have plenty of pineapples and bananas in stock, and you can make a refreshing hot weather beverage that also doubles as a filling afternoon snack.
We promise that everyone who drank either version sipped and smiled. There might have been a few ‘ahhhh…’ sounds heard, along with requests for seconds.

P.S. Go ahead, envision a vacation to the Islands during the last gasp of summer weather and add vodka or rum. Sip away.
