We’d call this one a “skinny” pina colada, but that might read girly, which this cocktail is most-certainly not. With zero added sugar and a heavy hand of rum, this libation resembles a “perfect” margarita (tequila, lime, triple sec). This 3-ingrediant, under-diluted beverage is a tropical take on the classic.

Aloha Print Dress
If you’re happy and you know it you can do many things.  You can clap your hands, do a little dance, have permagrin, give a stranger a bear hug, have an excuse to go do something out of the ordinary, or, in my case…rock some aloha print.

Aloha print not only puts me in a good mood, but it’s a foolproof way to say, “Hey, today is a freaking fantastic day, and I am enjoying it” without annoying any pessimists or people who just got a parking ticket after locking their keys in the car.

It’s good to be happy. Don’t hide it. Go rock some clothing of the tropical print genre. Any day, any season, and anywhere.
