The week of March 17, 2007, Brett and I embarked on our first big, alone trip. We took a lovely vaca to the Bahamas on the Royal Caribbean cruiseline. To this day, I call it “the best week of my life.” Tango lessons, endless beaches, steak with scallops, aqua water, and all-you-can-drink Pina Coladas…that is just the beginning of it. The best part of it all, of course, is that Brett and I were there together. We left Miami on the last day, talking about the next time we would see the beach together….
….and I have this little inkling that it will be next summer!!! On, oh, maybe a honeymoon??!! Probably not the Bahamas but somewhere tropical, you bet.
In honor of the past and the future… here is a yet-to-be-tried Pina Colada recipe. But, it’s very fitting that I went searching for this recipe today. This Saturday is Brett’s big graduation party, and you better believe I am whipping some of these up and garnishing with sweet pineapple!
Celebratory Pina Colada’s!!!
1 C coconut milk or cream of coconut
1 C pineapple juice
1/2 C rum
4 TBS white sugar
2 C ice
Blend all in a blender. Pour into glass. Garnish as desired.
