Havana Holiday

It’s Wednesday again and I’m dreaming of holidays in warm, tropical places. Wishful thinking… It doesn’t help that Melbourne is having an entirely unseasonal summer. So for Hump Day Happy Hour, I decided to create a fruity, Bahamas style drink and imagine white sandy beaches and sunsets.

I call this one Havana Holiday – the holiday you’re havin’ when you’re not havin’ a holiday.
