The gym was almost empty this week; a lot of folks are on spring break with their kids. One my best spring breaks was in college when I went to the Bahamas. I can still remember the white-white sand, blue-blue water, and those red-orange sweet drinks adorned fruit and tiny paper umbrellas.

This weekend, let’s pretend we’re on spring break and make Bahama Mamas. We’ll need:

Half ounce of dark rum

A third of an ounce of 151-proof rum

A third of an ounce of coffee liquor

Half ounce of coconut liqueur

Half ounce of lemon juice

Four ounces of pineapple juice

Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake with ice and strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Then garnish with an orange wedge, cherry—and if you have one—a tiny little paper umbrella.

Cheers!
