cheers to fruit, wine, and mexico!

I made these with my friend the other day. Got the idea from Happy Healthy Life. They are delicious, nutritious, and liable to get you buzzed... or not. It's up to you. Either way - aren't they just perdy?

The legal drinking age in Mexico is 18 sooooo I'm rather excited. The subject of alcohol for raw vegans is an interesting and controversial one. For me - wine is totally acceptable, especially red wine. We get ours from a local U-Brew. Also, sake is raw and quite tasty! But wine is the drink of choice here normally. When the occasion strikes, a cooler or a beer might be alright too.

Maybe later on in my life I'll become more strict but for NOW, my attitude about it is that life is meant to fun. You gotta live a little! Just be responsible, keep health in mind, and have a good time!

I, personally, like to party. Methinks my diet in Mexico will be TONS of tropical fruit, a bit o' booze, and lots of sunlight.

Fruity Paradise: makes 2 tall glasses

500 ml carbonated juice (we used San Pellagrino Limonita)
250 ml white wine
Various chopped fruit 
(we used frozen peaches, mango, blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, and fresh kiwi)

Layer fruit in two tall glasses in order of their colour, darkest to lightest. Pour in the wine, then the juice. Yum! Get your drank on!
If you wanna make these virgin, just omit the wine (duh...) and add more carbonated juice or carbonated water, or just juice.
