Paradise...
Last week was the first leg of my Caribbean getaway. Even though the real world was trying to call me back to shovel the driveway, I took a deep breath, a pull off of my Acapulco (see last week's recipe) and extended my stay by another week. The sun's rays shone down on me, warm sand shifted between my toes. The soothing lullaby of the ocean and the exotic sound of distant steel drums echoed in my ears, lulling me into a state of complete relaxation. Now this is paradise!!
Paradise
1 oz gin
1 oz apricot brandy
2 1/2 oz orange juice
Procedure: Combine all ingredients in a shaker with cracked ice. Shake well and pour into an Old Fashioned glass.

Ok... ok... I know not everyone can afford a Caribbean holiday and, quite frankly, neither can I. But who said we can't create our own little paradise at home?? All you really need is some imagination and a little ambiance. The first ingredient in making that seaside sensation is creating the feel and sounds of the ocean. So, pop Solitudes, Ocean Surf -Timeless & Sublime into the stereo, turn on the surround sound, and set the volume on low. Soon the room will be filled with the sound of gently crashing waves. Now, just close your eyes and you'll swear you're sitting oceanside.

Next on our list is temperature. We're talking tropical! Dust off that little heater sitting in the closet, set it off to the side, and turn it up till you can feel the warmth radiating towards you. Were close now, but there's still something missing!! What's missing... what's missing... I know!! Dig out your humidifier, fill it with water and turn it on high. That'll help moisten the air. Now to create that gentle breeze all you need is an oscillating fan!! Put the fan behind the humidifier, turn it on low, and sit back to enjoy your self-made sea breeze...
Sea Breeze
1 1/2 oz vodka
2 oz grapefruit juice
3 oz cranberry juice
Procedure: Fill a collins glass with cracked ice, add all ingredients and stir.

The poor man's Caribbean getaway, what could be better?? It has all of the highlights, none of the expense, and none of your friends will hate you for making them watch the slideshow!! Find out what's next when we unveil our deluxe package in our next Drink of the Week!!
