Puerto Rico Day 7: 1/10/13

Rainy, cloudy weather today. We basically stayed in and read most of the day. We ventured out a couple of times but got chased back in by rain. Dave did get a chance to finish his Pina Colada on the beach before the rain hit.

He doesn’t feel like he’s on a beach vacation until he drinks a pina colada on the beach. But there isn’t always a beach bar so he came up with a shaken pina colada recipe which is pretty good.

We picked up DonQ rum, pineapple juice, and coconut cream at the local grocery store. He fashioned a makeshift shaker out of a glass and a plastic cup.

1:4 ratio of coconut cream and pineapple juice. Rum to taste. Shake and serve over ice. 

We had picked up some gin too. Turns out that it’s impossible for us to tell if the pina colada is made with gin or rum.

Lunch was an huevos rancheros of sorts – soft scrambled eggs with leftover quesadilla cheese on toasted tortillas topped with salsa and a fruit salad.

We read more in the afternoon. Dinner was at Susie’s – okay food that was somewhat overpriced.
