Pink-a-Colada

Today is officially my last day at my job.  I wish I could tell you that I’m going to be able to work full-time on this blog which would make me so happy but that’s not the case.  Here’s the short of it: my office was relocated from Philadelphia to Connecticut and I didn’t want to make the move.   Fortunately, I’m taking a new job starting Monday.  The past year and nine months since we’ve known about the move have been stressful, gut wrenching and tiring.  Watching friends and co-workers leave to go to other jobs was sad.  Watching everyone getting packed up and spending the last week in an empty office was even sadder.  So because of our “end” and because the summer heat is in full force, why not celebrate it all with a fruity, coconuty cocktail like these Pink-a-Coladas?

Cranberry juice, coconut water, pineapple juice and coconut rum are mixed together for a perfectly summery sweet warm weather cocktail.  I’m not the biggest fan of coconut water and since the rum is already strong enough, I’m not really sure it’s necessary.  Don’t worry if you don’t have some.  Coconut rum and pineapple juice is already so good together but adding in some tart cranberry juice cuts down some of the sweetness which makes these cocktails go down waaaaaay too easily.  As bittersweet as my job’s move has been, I don’t know what else to do but just raise my glass and say…Cheers!  Here’s to new beginnings.
