    Our traditional 'arrival drink' is an Aruba Ariba on the beach at the Radisson! Generally don't have another one of these during our vacation..... too many other great tropical drinks to sample. But, it is our 'starter'.

    Aruba Ariba
    1/2 oz vodka
    1/2 oz 151 rum (better if using Ron Rico from Aruba)
    1/8 oz Coecoei
    1/8 oz Creme de Banana
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1/2 cup cranberry juice
    1/2 cup pineapple juice OR you're favorite "punch drink"
    Splash of Grenadine
    Do not shake, just stir lightly. Top with a "flag" toothpick and a cherry and orange. Top with Grand Marnier.

    A Woodforde Reserve on our patio as a cruise ship leaves port at sunset from the Renaissance...then on to Don Carlos for their famous mudslide!

    Doesn't get any better than that.

    No cocktails, just a good old Balashi or Amstel Bright!

    I am kind of boring I guess, always have a pina colada upon arrival. I drink Balashi in the hotels and casinos. I love a Heinaken at the Gazebo on the back shopping street in Orangested.

    We agree. Later we will sit on the patio and have a bottle of white wine or preferably Cooks champagne.
