SophistiKat "Dessert of the Month"

As our Summer comes to a close we wanted to bring you something Smooth. .Lite. .and of course DELICIOUS to ease away the final days of summer blues. .
You know we LOVE are southern roots and desserts but this one is a little West Coast. 
Inspired by one of our favorite drinks "The Pina Colada" but with a twist. .
