Mai Tai's here i come!!

Woohooo!!! Off to Fiji tomorrow!
This is where we are headed for 7 nights....Matamanoa island resort. I want all of you to cross your fingers last trips cyclone doesnt make a second appearance & we have perfect sunny hot days!

Saw this gorgeous collection of photos & the recipie for Mai Tai's over at coco & kelly a few weeks ago & i thought id re-post it to get me (& you !) all in the spirit! Bring on the cocktails!!!

The Mai Tai
2 tablespoons light rum
2 tablespoons orange curacao
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 dash simple syrup
1 tablespoon dark rum
mint, a pineapple slice, and a paper umbrella for garnish
Fill a glass with ice. Pour in light rum, orange curacao, orange juice, lime juice, orgeat, and simple syrup.
Then drizzle dark rum right on top. Garnish with mint, pineapple slice, and a paper umbrella for panache!

My other half mentioned the other day that i was a little bit fixated on the cocktails apsect of the trip..yeah?! so!?


  1. Have a great time Sal .. any room in the suitcase for me???

  2. Have a wonderful time! Hope all the days are hot and sunny for you. It's not a holiday without a cocktail! :)

  3. Have a great time! I am so jealous. Cocktails are just a given when you are holidaying on an island or anywhere warm and sunny, near a beach, or on a cruise or just when you need a holiday! xx

  4. Sal, any chance you want to swap your tix for a 8 day stay in Perth looking after a 2.5 year old and a dog, a great day tour of the garden once you have planted it is also on the will be so relaxing.........No, really.
    Have a fantastic time, on a well deserved break.;)

  5. Thanks guys - ill have a cocktail for every one of you! I am in such desperate need of a holiday!! Hopefully will have brilliant weather & come back all refreshed!
