I have been participating in #SundaySupper for going on two years now, I think?  I’d honestly have to check, but however long it’s been, they feel like a true family to me.  The #SundaySupper Movement and its members have embraced me, taught me, directed me, helped me, and were there to support me through this blogging experience and I can’t wait to be able to help new members the same way they have helped me.

Isabel.  What can you say about Isabel?  She is wonderful!  She’s welcoming!  She’s always there with an invisi-smile, virtua-hug, and truly the mom of this family of bloggers.  You have a problem?  She can help.  You have to vent?  She’ll listen.  Need help?  She’s there.  Ideas?  Suggestions?  Support?  Isabel is always around to lead you down the right path.

I have felt so very lucky to have been welcomed into this family by Isabel.  So, you can bet I jumped at the chance to concoct something delicious for her on her birthday.  And a drink at that!  Search my blog.  I’m not a mixologist.  I have one alcoholic beverage and one non-alcoholic beverage, I think?  I just don’t create drinks.  But for Isabel’s birthday, I wanted to make a killer drink.

And that’s just what I did.

I know Isabel has Portuguese roots, but I can’t help but relate that with caipirinhas.  My mother was friends with a doctor and her husband from Portugal and they introduced me to caipirinhas.  Yes.  I know they’re a Brazilian drink, but still…they’re just too darned delicious to not make one in honor of Isabel’s birthday.

And this one?  It’s oh so goooooooood.  It’s, I can’t believe I made this, good.  I can’t believe I made a drink, good.  Lick the bottom of the glass good.  Will be making these multiple times, good.  You should get in your kitchen and make these now, good.  Seriously.  Good.

If you don’t like pina coladas, then, I’m sorry.  Please skip down to the rest of the recipes we’re bringing to #IsabelsBirthdayBash.  But, if you do like pina coladas, then sit down and let me mix of up on these addictive drinks for you.

You see, I ran the gamut of fruits; dragon, cherries, mango, lime, grapefruit, pear, apple.  You name it.  But I kept coming back to the pineapple in the fridge.  But not just pineapple.  Pina colada.  Deliciously sweet with coconut and pineapple muddled together and topped with cachaça; sugar cane liquor. 

If you can’t find that, then you can easily substitute rum, but there’s something about cachaça that’s a little different from rum.  I’d look for it if you can.  Because trust me when I say you will want to make these repeatedly.
