Craving a getaway? Us too. It’s summer and all we want to do is hit the beach and catch some rays. Right?! Unfortunately, most of us are stuck working behind a desk all summer long :( Welp, we came up with the next best thing: Piña Coladas. Blend these up, take a sip and you’ll be transported to the tropical island of your dreams in no time. Aloha!
