Picture this: It's the middle of January. You're in your dorm room under your patterned duvet from Urban Outfitters and your alarm just went off for your 10am. The thought of walking to class in single-digit temperatures is something even your Canada Goose can't protect you from, so you decide to sleep in instead. As you nod off, you dream of a simpler time—basically three weeks ago—when you were on winter break in Cabo sipping a fruit-filled drink next to your best friends and polishing off some fish tacos.

When you wake up, you're reminded of the harsh reality that is your life now: freezing weather, endless homework, and months until spring break. Luckily, this delicious recipe has arrived just in time. With fresh and vibrant flavors, this beverage can be made in just ten minutes and will take you back to warmer, less stressful days.
