Who knew it was National Rum Day? I certainly didn’t. But who I am to deprive myself of a cocktail in its honor. So I promptly said yes to an invite to hang with my fave bloggers on the Cloud Nine 111 courtesy Malibu Island Spiced rum cocktails. Plus there was dinner and the best Manhattan views ever attached–I couldn’t resist.
The Weather Gods held the rain back and presented us with a fabulous warm breeze envied by those not on the boat with us. I have to admit… this boat ride further confirmed how awesome New York city is to me. Like, why would you live anywhere else. I’m not sure if I will still feel this way in the next five years, but today, I’m feeling blessed to be a New Yorker.
On the water, the city is gawjus! Breathtaking. We all sat out on Cloud 9 and reflected on things like, the hottest trends this season and where to get the cheapest leather skirt from. I mean, what else would girls chat about right. I brought my boo, DivasAndDorks along for the ride (my real boo was working)! We are officially dating in case you are wondering.
I really need to inherit a friend with a yacht. I mean, this situation has to happen each Friday after work. I am officially over your standard happy hour. Call me bougie, but I’ve got goals! Although I think my big dreams were a series of Malibu -induced ambitious thoughts? I threw back quite a few. And luckily, there’s only 70 calories a pop. So technically that means that means that I only have 1 and half drinks?!
In case you are super jelly, don’t be. You can totally grab a recipe from the Malibu Facebook page.
