Happy FRIDAY! I am so excited to be sharing this delicious Bahama Mama Tropical Cocktail with y'all today! I first had this deliciously sweet and refreshing drink on my cruise and I just knew I had to recreate it at home. It combines orange juice and pineapple juice with rum and grenadine for a beautiful sunset-colored refreshment. Bottoms up!
So, again - this Bahama Mama is soooo super simple to make and tastes spectacular! I just know it'll be the cocktail on repeat all summer long. It really does take me back to my vacation. Though regrettably, in this case I have to make myself the drink as well as the dinner that comes after ? And also I'm no longer a bronzed goddess, but that's neither here nor there.
I have some exciting news - I finally met up with my wedding photographer the other day! So now it's like, REALLY really official which is so awesome. She's hilarious and she totally gets exactly what I want! And she's so talented which definitely doesn't hurt. We went out for a glass of wine and shared a cheeseboard so, I mean... if that doesn't tell you we're a match made in heaven, I don't know what will! In all honesty, this Bahama Mama may end up being one of the signature drinks at our wedding 😉
What are you waiting for? The weekend's calling! Whip up a Bahama Mama and go enjoy the sunset on your porch.
