It's been a while since I've had a vacation. Mr. Higgins and I like to try to space out our three weeks of vacation time throughout the year. For some reason, this year, we're going from June to December without a vacation. Oy. It's tough.
We've already been thinking about our next cruise, at the beginning of December, where we'll get to visit our favorite place again: St. John, USVI. After spending the morning on the beach (probably Cinnamon Bay), we'll go into town and shop, visit some of our favorite places, and have a drink at our favorite bar.
One of my favorite drinks to get on St. John is the Painkiller. It's deliciously pineapple-y! Here's the recipe:
2-4 oz of dark rum (we use Cruzan, from the Virgin Islands)
4 oz pineapple juice
1 oz cream of coconut (aka Coco Lopez)
1 oz orange juice
a dash of nutmeg on the top of each drink
Oh, boy. I can just feel the island breeze as I sip one of these at home. Enjoy!
