Summer Afternoon Cocktails

Summer afternoon - summer afternoon;
 to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language...
Henry James

It's the time of year when friends drop by, rather than a glass of wine or cold beer, offer up this quick and easy cocktail...It will make lounging on the porch or patio a real summer treat!

Planter's Punch
(this is my dad's recipe and it is DELICIOUS)
1/2 ounce Myers's Rum Original Dark
1 ounce White Rum ( I use Bacardi)
2 ounces orange juice
2 ounces pineapple juice
a dash of Grenadine
and an orange slice for garnish.

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker.
Add ice. Shake. Pour into tall glass. Sit back.

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful summer afternoon....I am!
