So how ’bout that weather here in Southern Ontario this month? If there’s one adage that I’ve learned to be true this month, It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity! Now thankfully, my mom and my sister and I left the province for the East Coast near the beginning of the recent heat-wave, and returned to gorgeous – can I say that again? – gorgeous and incredible weather.

22, 25, even 29 degrees without a hint of humidity is AH-MAZING. I can cook, clean, bake, play – without breaking (much of) a sweat and the windows remain wide open!

No matter. I’m here now. And I have to share with you my favourite refreshing drink recipe. It’s non-alcoholic, which is perfect since one of my good ladies is quite advanced in her pregnancy, so I can share with her. We actually discovered this drink together at a small deli / restaurant in the Village in Montreal at the end of May on a very, very hot day.
(This is where I would have put a picture of the incredibly tasty drink that inspired me to make this slushie at home, but somewhere along the line, the folder of pics that I took in Montreal disappeared off of DH’s computer. Hmmm.)
