The traditional farewell (or toast) of a Mariner is wishing a friend “fair winds and following seas.”
Last weekend, we had the blessing of being all together for a sunset dinner sail on the Whisper. The wind was fair, the seas were calm and the food was just delicious.
Thank you Captain Dave Rubbo and all your mates for yet another memorable evening sailing under a summer sky. And love to my dear friends for a fun birthday celebration filled with wonderful foodie treats, laughter and really, really, good wine!~ Sheryl
Menu for an evening sail…
“Keep the moon on the right”!
This is truly one of my favorite summertime drinks. The combination of fresh mint and lime are amazing. Cool, refreshing and delicious. This drink will have you planting some mint on your patio or in your garden. (Please note that if you plant mint in your yard it will spread like crazy).
- 10 – 15 fresh mint leaves (torn into pieces)
- 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
- 2 tablespoons simple syrup
- ice cubes
- 1 fluid ounces Barcardi rum
- 1/2 fluid ounces triple sec
- 1/2 cup club soda
