Costa Rica was beautiful but hot. Cafe Milagro turned out to be a favorite hangout not far from our hotel. Costa Rica is known for its coffee, but this lime drink was possibly the most refreshing thing I’ve ever drunk.

for Life in Colour: yellow

    I love anything with very limy, do you have the recipe for this cool looking drink? You have picked a great contrast with the yellow background.

  2. Heyjude says:

    They are obviously not shy of using colour in Costa Rica!

  3. Dan Antion says:

    Mmmm. That does look refreshing.

  4. Elizabeth says:

    I’m craving for a hot place right now, and this lime drink seems yummy!

  5. Just looking at this bright, boldly colored photo is like an instant infusion of sunshine. Gorgeous and refreshing!

  6. Refreshing is good … and love the colors and how they make the straw shine.

    Ah! Love Cafe Milagro. I always got the mocha frozen coffee after trekking up the long walk down to the Playitas. Did you venture down to that end of the beach? Away from the main hotels.

    • Where we were staying, you had to walk down to the beach and there weren’t a lot of hotels. At the time, I didn’t drink coffee but now that frozen mocha sounds wonderful. It would be good here in Arizona in the summer! 🙂

  8. It’s a very colourful place and that drink against the bright yellow background is no exception.

    I love the color of that drink. It seemed healthy before I knew what was in it even.

    Love the vibrant colors! Almost makes me want to repaint my studio.

  11. Amy says:

    Love the tropical and heerful colors, Janet!

  12. Love the color-block composition –nice!

  13. Su Leslie says:

    Yum: I love all things lime-flavoured.

  14. de Wets Wild says:

    Given the choice in that tropical climate I would also go for the cool drink every time (and take a bag of coffee along to savour when I’m back home)

  15. I’d try it! The colors are wonderful.

  16. Resa says:

    That looks so refreshing. Lime is my favourite flavour. Chocolate doesn’t come anywhere close to lime. I squeeze fresh lime juice into my OJ, every morning. Delish, and gets me going.

  17. Cheerful and colorful shot, Janet! I like it a lot! 🌞
