Mahana Cocktail

You guys may have noticed that Thursday’s post went up late and Friday’s post was non-existent.  This was supposed to be Friday’s post, but my laptop more or less bit the dust.  Luckily a friend has an old laptop I could borrow and so with a couple updates and installations I’m good to go until I figure out what to do.

Is it too soon to post another tropical drink recipe from the islands of Tahiti?  Well, after the past couple days I’ve been in need of a drink or two (I’ve also been boozing it up with some Homemade Irish Crème-spiked coffee).Yes, I realize that these drinks aren’t authentic Tahitian fare, but they sure are tasty.  A nice change from my usual piña colada, this frozen drink combines pineapple, Triple Sec and fresh vanilla bean seeds.  A wedge of pineapple and a pineapple leaf make it look particularly fancy-pants :)
