My favorite refreshing summer drink is a Pina Colada.

Put all ingredients into an electric blender with 2 cups of crushed ice. Blend at a high-speed for a short length of time. Strain into a collins glass and serve with a straw.
My summer read for this year is Summer Sisters by Judy Blume.
When Victoria Leonard answers the phone in her Manhattan office, Caitlin’s voice catches her by surprise. Vix hasn’t talked to her oldest friend in months. Caitlin’s news takes her breath away–and Vix is transported back in time, back to the moment she and Caitlin Somers first met, back to the casual betrayals and whispered confessions of their long, complicated friendship, back to the magical island where two friends became summer sisters.
Caitlin dazzled Vix from the start, sweeping her into the heart of the unruly Somers family, into a world of privilege, adventure, and sexual daring. Vix’s bond with her summer family forever reshapes her ties to her own, opening doors to opportunities she had never imagined–until the summer she falls passionately in love. Then, in one shattering moment on a moonswept Vineyard beach, everything changes, exposing a dark undercurrent in her extraordinary friendship with Caitlin that will haunt them through the years.
