This week Mike and I have been searching for cruises. Last year we were supposed to go on our "last hurrah" cruise and it turned out horrible. We missed one port all together, arrived at another port 6 hours late and at night, and went through torrential downpours for the majority of the cruise. Hell of a "last hurrah", huh? So...I think we're going to try for "last hurrah" number 2.
The main problem is that I only have off for the 2 weeks before school. So, we're kind of at a limit for options. Luckily, all the options we have are good options! haha. So I can't complain.
With all this talk about cruising and blue waters it has me craving some Rum Punch. So, I thought I would quench that thirst with a new recipe for Thursty Thursday.
One of my favorite memories with rum punch involves a cruise I went on, just Mom, Dad, and I when I was in college. We took a catamaran out in St. Kitts and went snorkeling and sunbathing. It was so much fun. And...they served rum punch all day long. I was a little bummed on this trip because....well, let's face it, it was with my parents and.....I wasn't 21 yet. But, I guess since they were in the moment, I was allowed to partake in the libations!!
This rum punch is a great replica of the rum punches in the islands. It's sweet, but not too sweet and nice and smooth.
