Happy Hour: Fruji

I've admitted it before, and I'll admit it again, I'm not really a fancy-drink kind of girl. All I need is vodka and tonic and I'm set. However, with that said, I'm trying to expand my drink options and so I always love checking out different recipes online. I found this one over in the Let's Have a Drink group. It's called a Fruji and it was posted by TeamSugar member Shiloh Jolie Pitt. She likes it because it tastes like a pineapple ice block found in New Zealand. Tastes like pineapple and contains vodka? Count me in! To check out the recipe,

Not to be a Debbie Downer but I gotta say I just hate seeing stimulants and depressants mixed together! As someone with multiple heart conditions that weren't discovered until college a drink like this could literally kill me, and any other person who might have an undiagnosed ailment. I'm just so certain (and sad) that some day bartenders are going to start getting sued when someone dies from the drinks they mix up. Now if they want to put the mixer and the energy drink separate on the bar and let the customer do as they wish, I'm all for that. Even with my heart problems I'm all for drinking, I went to a top party school, and enjoy a good time much as the next girl, but common sense has certainly kept me alive!
