Nothing says vacation like a tall drink filled with flavors that remind one of an island paradise. Coconut, mango, pineapple and spiced rum are just what the doctor ordered. A nice beach, sand between my toes, the sound of ocean waves and a warm sunset would be the perfect backdrop for this particular drink. But, when we can’t have everything we want; improvise!
Close your eyes, take a long sip and let the Swaying Winds take you to your perfect vacation destination. Cheers!
