July 4, 2011 by Leanne Vogel July 16, 2015What a weekend! The weather was gorgeous, we have trees in our backyard now, our neighborhood barbecue was a success, and… my computer’s fixed! Thankfully no files were lost. So, the minute my computer was up and running, I did a backup of everything. I now have everything online on Dropbox. I was drawn to dropbox because it makes everything so accessible. I can access my files anywhere in the world – from a computer, or my iPhone, their security is amazing, and the first 2GB is free. Now, to keep up with the monthly backups. With a fixed computer, a mind full of BBQ ideas, and 24 hours before events began, I raced down to my kitchen to begin creating. First up on the list was Yukka Flux. I have no idea who made up the name of this cocktail, or where it originated, only that it’s awesome. I’d never heard of this magical drink until one of my teammates brought it in pails to our golf tournament. Needless to say, they were a huge hit. Generally I try to avoid cocktails in the summer because they’re just so full of sugar. If I enjoy a couple in the evening I end up feeling horrible for the next couple of days. Not worth it. But Yukka Flux… no sugar, less empty calories, and it’s even high in fiber, too! It’s still alcohol. But, it’s ridiculously better than store bought coolers, and easy to whip up. If that doesn’t sway you, can I tempt you by saying you won’t have as bad a hangover with this as you would other drinks? ;)
