I don’t know about you, but I always start my summer with great ambitions to finally have the relaxing, blissed-out summer of my dreams. You know – whiling away the afternoon reading in a hammock, leisurely polishing off some vino with friends in the park or falling asleep to the sounds of the surf in the afternoon sun. (Oh, and now that I’ve made this recipe, sip these Coconut Passion Fruit Margs by a pool.)
While good intentioned, my plan typically unravels the minute I look at my calendar. Between work and personal commitments, summer fills up quickly. While I love traveling, I often return from summer weekends more burnt out than when I left due my tendency to overplan and also the minutiae of traveling (anyone who’s been stuck in Montauk traffic feels my pain.) It’s not exactly “recharging.”
That said, this year I have a solution to my lack of leisure time: building in “agenda-free” time into my schedule. While it’s tempting to fill up a weekend with back to back plans, my goal this year is quality over quantity. After all, I’d rather risk the travel-induced FOMO and skip the second “must visit” restaurant in a new town if it means I’m getting more relaxation time.
The first thing I plan to do with all my free-time? Make these coconut passion fruit margs! Inspired by a recent trip to Tulum, these margaritas made with Toasted Coconut + Cashew Nutchello are seriously a vacation in a glass. The toasted coconut flavor from the Nutchello pairs really well with the tropical tart-sweet of the passion fruit, for the perfect summer drink. Want to try it yourself? Head this way for a coupon!
