Modern Mai Tai with Hibiscus + Thyme + a #drinkthesummer recap!

Modern Mai Tai with Hibiscus + Thyme | @withfoodandlove

For many reasons, but especially because it’s Friday and still very much the summertime – I thought I’d bring you guys something fun to sip on over the weekend. And, pretend like it’s still the middle of July. It’s a fresh take on a classic cocktail, with some updated coolness and inspired flavors.

I call it the Modern Mai Tai. Pumped full of fresh pineapple juice, your favorite rum, and some honey-sweetened, thyme infused hibiscus tea. Definitely no gross liquors or sugary syrups or artificial colors. Just clean, good old real-food ingredients. And, booze.

I’m light on the words today, so feel free to skip down to the bottom for the recipe, or read on for a recap of last week’s #DRINKTHESUMMER party!

#DRINKTHESUMMER was a total success! And Renee and I were incredibly honored to have so many wonderful people/talented bloggers come together, all in the name of love and late summer produce and high-vibe cocktails. The internet can be a lonely place sometimes, and as a food blogger you spend a lot {like a lot} of your time behind a screen. So it was a really fun way for us to mix up the monotony and support one another. So, thanks for hanging everyone.

p.s. We want to make this an annual thing, open to EVERYONE {with a blog}! So if you want to participate in #DRINKTHESUMMER next year, fill out this form and we’ll totally put you on the list.
