Summer Break @ 19th Hole

I decided I needed a break. So I went to the 19TH HOLE CASINO to cool down. I challenged Jody to make me a couple cocktails. My instructions were to make me two colorful drinks in two different glasses. She came up with a MAI TAI and a BLUE HAWAIIAN. I enjoyed them both @ $10.75 for the pair. After finishing the drinks I felt refreshed and headed home for some homemade cooking. It was a nice break.
