Saturday Salute | The Pineapple Paloma

pineapple-drink
With fall beach days being an apparent regular thing these days in California, we’re in no mood start adding pumpkin spice and warming whisky to our beverages. Inauthentic to the point of miniature umbrella status, this take on the traditionally booze-heavy lime and tequila drink satisfies your fruity, festive, scent-of-sunscreen-loving self.

Your body is rad.

In fact every single human body is more than rad. It’s remarkable, and capable of soooooo many incredible things. Case in point: Freedivers that can hold their breath for 5 minutes, marathon runners, rock climbers, powerlifters, hip hop dancers, Kobayashi, and of course, surfers.

Another case in point: Beating personal bests in a timed mile, hiking a 14’er, completing a triathlon, or rehabbing from a life altering injury to being better than before.

And those are just a few examples off the top of my head. (more…)
