the summer cyclist

December 2nd, 2006

In the summer of 2003 I was in Stockholm on vacation and at one point I found myself at a TGI Fridays. You can spot the place like two blocks away for their ugly decor. Anyway, the place was pretty busy, and noisy. I was staring in the menu at a long list of names, none of which looked familiar to me. Finally I turned it over and there was their smoothie menu. Ah, something more to my pallet. I can usually tell when I've made a good choice and I was pretty confident about the Summer Cyclist. It turns out I wasn't mistaken, it was awesome. The drink has become somewhat of a legend to me, but today it occurred to me to google it and I found a recipe.

Summer Cyclist Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 55g Pureed Strawberries
  • 50g Grapefruit Juice
  • 30g Pineapple Juice
  • 1 scoop Orange Sherbert
  • 1/2 cup Crushed Ice

Directions: Use a blender

Granted I've no idea where to find this sherbert stuff, but I'm one step closer to reproducing this drink.
