Malibu Summer Rose Cocktail

I have this awesome co-worker… her name is Summer and she’s always making me laugh, which I truly need sometimes at work.

Come to find out, she has a drink named after her… How freakin’ cool is that?  Summer’s mom, Jewel Hanson, won a contest (Think of a Drink) held by Malibu Rum in the late 1980’s.  Well, Mrs. Jewel came up with this drink recipe and named it after her daughter (Summer Rose).  She nailed it like a champ and won the contest.  Not to mention a full-on cruise to the Bahamas.

I must meet this woman.  Soon.

It was all I could do to take these pictures after tasting this drink…

It was so good, I had two.  Oops.

The very first photo (my favorite) happened by accident.  It’s a truly natural reflection of my evening after work.  I plopped down in my adirondack chair by my little flower garden to sip on it after I took the other photos, and decided to photograph it.

Some of the best things happen by accident.

So a big ‘ole cheers to summer (the season), Summer (my friend) and Mrs. Jewel for coming up with such an awesome drink!
