Life is good and my husband and I love enjoying a glass of wine or a cocktail on a weekend or the end of a long day.  We learned some amazing rum drink recipes at Beaches Resorts when we traveled there in October and are excited to continue sharing them with you.  Last week we shared one of my favorite rum drinks, Another Day in Paradise.  This week I am back with a classic drink that everyone loves – an easy Mai Tai recipe.  And if rum isn’t your alcohol of choice, don’t worry we have plenty of other cocktail recipes for you!
