It’s our Thursday Night Social time 🙂 ~~~
Happy “Friday Eve” ~ hope you’re having a GREAT week! This is my favorite cocktail hour, and here are some things I’ve seen this week that looked especially good for a colorful Caribbean weekend! I am soooooo ready for anything Caribbean. My home has been a cold and noisy construction zone for the past week ~ and that’s after two weeks of packing and prep. The crew is gone, my new floors are finally done, and now the cleaning and unpacking can commence. And after a root canal last week, now I have a cold. Fun times! But hey, if I can get some sunshine, island music and a good cocktail (or two) the rest will take care of itself.
As usual, let’s start with a cocktail, shall we? Last week, it was all about classic seaside style. This week for a colorful Caribbean weekend, I’m all for a classic rum punch. You know, the kind you get at the island beach bar and drink by the pitcher? Oh, maybe that’s just me and my friends! That’s how we ended the afternoon after diving with wild Caribbean dolphins in Roatan. What a great day and definitely one for the Life Enjoyed Bucket. 🙂
This rum punch is from Michael at inspiredbycharm.com. Love his style and his blog ~ check it out ~~~
For some more bright Caribbean color, try my own Bluwatersplash. It’s like summer in a glass ~~~
A more recent colorful Caribbean classic is the Yellow Bird cocktail. This one is from moderntiki.com ~ another of my fave blogs ~~~
Conch Fritters are a fave Caribbean bite that are welcome with any cocktail. After sampling lots in the little latitudes, they’re on the list to try in my kitchen, and this recipe from desktopcookbook.com has all the right ingredients, though I will likely have to make do with frozen conch ~~~
And we can watch the sunset in a perfect colorful Caribbean spot at Compass Point, Nassau Bahamas ~~~
Welcome to Compass Point ~~~
Dibs on the first table ~~~
Anyone for another round? My treat!
Whether you prefer classic seaside, coastal cottage, Caribbean brights or vintage tiki ~ there’s a style for everyone. We’re checking out all the faves in our Thursday Night Social this month. I’ll go back to cleaning and unpacking now, with a cocktail, some island music, and visions of Caribbean brights in my head. Oh, and I think I’ll turn up the heat!
Hope to see you next week for our Thursday Night Social ~~~
