Put A Little Umbrella In Your Drink

I was hooked on little paper umbrellas by the age of 8. 

My parents would bring them home after an evening out for my sister and I. We liked to collect the umbrellas and use them when we played "house" with our dolls.
I was surprised to discover there is a website called Put A Little Umbrella In Your Drink.

Make life more fun and serve drinks with paper umbrellas and slices of fruit.  With the launch of summer these drink recipes can get you off to a festive start.
