Island Breeze....

Imagine this....a tropical beach with your favorite book; toes in the sand, sunblock on your nose..then reality hits, and you're really home with phones ringing, laundry buzzers buzzing, and the 6:00 news blasting on the family room TV.

There's a way I've found to still imagine you've escaped. Make this little drink, close your eyes, and smile for a bit (until someone's ringing the doorbell, or the dog is barking at the back door).

Island Breeze (Cooking Light Magazine)

2 and 1/4 cups orange juice
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup light rum
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons grenadine

Fill four glasses with ice. In a cocktail shaker or blender, mix the oj, pineapple juice, rum and lime juice. Pour into glasses. Drizzle 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of grenadine down the inside of each glass.

Garnish with fruit. Kick off your shoes. Enjoy your backyard. Dream......
