    Ths is sounds perfect for summer night in the garden, with nachos and some cold drink! I am thinking like Mojito or Hugo 🙂 Thank you for sharing it!

    What kind of high-speed blender do you use for cashew and other nuts? It looks so creamy, I can’t wait to try it!

      Thank you Caitlin! I used a vitamix but any blender would work just as long as you soak them for a while.
