mmmm! mojitos... it's hard to make a good mojito tho.. you gotta crush the mint leaves just right...

while in puerto rico, i got hooked up cruzan rums... cruzan's coconut rum is more coconutty than malibu and packs a higher alcohol content..   ;D

I just read through all the drink selections, and with all due respect....you'll NEVER remember the weekend after you try all of these  ;D.  But just to stay in the theme, when you crawl out early on Sunday morning, have a Bloody Mary for me!!!

Well Ang, guess it should be illegal if you burn the bar down.  Oh well you could go out happy.  What a kick, how do they make the flames?
Hey forget your troubles and have a great vacation rocky.

Pretty fire!!!!!  They make a pyramid (They won't tell me what's in it because they were afraid I'd do it at home) of these shot glasses with a special mix.  They'd set the top one of fire and knock it over, which would ignite all the other ones.  It was so FREAKING COOL!!!!!!

Have Fun!!! My personal fav is a Ketel One Gibson, straight up with extra onions.  Mmmmm!  So smooth!  But for mixers I usually get a Long Beach Iced Tea (cranberry juice instead of coke) or a Salty Dog (grapefruit+vodka+salted rim).  Always nice, especially with ruby red juice.  A good rule of thumb to remember when drinking cocktails, especially in larger amounts, is to use juice instead of carbonated mixers.  The carbonation opens up the Pyloric valve in your stomach and the alcohol gets into your system faster, thus you get drunk faster than you might have wanted to.  Just a little bartender knowledge I picked up while I was one in college.  Enjoy Myrtle Beach, Cheers!  ;D ;D ;D

Long Islands used to be my drink but now i go for Long Beach Iced Teas instead.  Basically the same but instead of the cola you put cranberry!!! I also enjoy a good mojito these days, and red wine is always wonderful.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Vanilla Vodka and Coke is another fav and very popular.  Watermelon Margaritas at Chevy's (with their intensely addictive salsa and chips) are to die for as well.  But you know, as much as I like cocktails, there's something to be said for an ice cold Budweiser, Asahi or Czechvar served in a frozen glass after a hard days work in the sun.  Honestly, I can't think of another drink that illicits that heart felt "aaahhh!" after that first swallow.  I know Drake agrees!  8)
