Bahama Mama!

***I can't believe I haven't made a single post since July 20th...I apologize! Things have been extremely busy at work. So busy, that I only had time to actually cook dinner one night last week...I know, that's pretty bad, huh? Our dinners consisted of fast food and restaurants. I spent every evening working on a ginormous project for work. I finished it today...but now I get to start on another one! But, I've got some great recipes coming up, so please don't stop reading! After next Tuesday (the due date), I should be finished with these big projects (at least for a little while).

After such a busy week, I think it's only suitable that I post one of my favorite drinks...quite the stress-reducer...lol. The "Bahama Mama" has always been a favorite of mine. It reminds me of sitting on the beach in the Bahamas, watching the sunset....Ahhh, to be there right now!

Here it is...there are tons of different ways to make these. This recipe is one of the simplest and tastes the most authentic...enjoy!***

1 part orange juice
1 part pineapple juice
1 part coconut rum
1/2 part grenadine
Sliced oranges and cherries for garnish

Fill your glass with crushed ice. In a separate pitcher, mix orange juice, pineapple juice, coconut rum, and grenadine. Stir well. Pour over ice. Add orange slices and cherries as garnish.
