Monkey Business Cocktail

Well I’m going to share something pretty special with you today.  I have mentioned before that after the wedding, Corey and I honeymooned in Costa Rica.  We stayed at Arenas Del Mar which was basically paradise.  Highly recommended if you ever want to visit Costa Rica.  During our stay, I fell in love with a beverage.  I despise alcohol in all shapes and sizes, and will only drink something if it is particularly delicious.  Even then, usually just one.  In Costa Rica, I partook in no less than three of these beverages a day.  And probably would have drank more had I not felt like I was going to gain 57 pounds.  What were they?  My friends, may I please introduce you to the Monkey Business.  She tastes like the most delicious banana coconut milkshake you (or I) have ever had.  I missed her desperately and finally made Corey email the lovely people at Arenas Del Mar to get the recipe and they graciously sent it over.

Enjoy!  I know I will.

    Lordy day, child! These things are amazing. I do feel like I gained 1,000 pounds per sip, but worth it.
