The Arabian Teahouse, Dubai

We have recently returned from a wonderful trip to Europe and India to see family. On the way to India, we visited Dubai it is my second time visiting its a fascinating place. Very modern and high tech with with lots of "biggest" things, the world's biggest building, the biggest picture frame, the biggest diving pool the list goes on. 
I admire how the United Arab Emirates has a plan for the future, attracts folks from around the world to live and work there, and it focuses on Tourism.

Lime, Ginger and Mint Spritzer

This is a deliciously easy and refreshing drink perfect for warm weather. It was inspired by a drink I had in the Cayman islands, that reminded me of the flavors of a mojito. 


Add fresh mint leaves to a jug, about 3 teaspoon of lime juice/ syrup, a small knob of grated fresh ginger, sugar to taste and serve over ice. Garnish with edible flowers.

Dragon Fruit Smoohie

The color of this smoothie is so fun, I found little individual servings of dragon fruit in the store's frozen section that are perfect for making smoothies you can also find the whole fruits.
