Happy Hour!


Instead of TGIF, it's TGFI around here (Thank Goodness For Islands). When cocktail hour rolls around and the sun hovers over the horizon, turning ocean and sky mystical shades of pink and purple, we Island Runaways have an abundant choice of island libations.


Rum, anyone? Boat drinks? Maybe a chilled white wine? It doesn't have to be alcoholic, either. A pineapple juice with some ice can serve very nicely in the tropics. Or a Jamaican Ting soda, that deliciously grapefruit soft drinks that makes your taste buds dance.


Check in here for posts that will make you want to clink your glass and shout, "CHEERS!"
