Hi, I’m back!!!  Miss me?  I missed you guys!  WOW, that Royal Caribbean sale was great for biz! 

So last year I spent 5 days at the (then new) Secrets Silversands. Great resort and the most requested drink there was the Miami Vice!  I kept looking around for Don Johnson, but he was nowhere to be found.  Oh no, I think I just dated myself…Sorry, but I am a product of the ’80’s.  I even have pictures of 2 guests from my (formal) wedding that dressed like Crockett & Tubbs! 

Back to the drink – – – Enjoy!

You have to agree this resembles one of Crockett's Suits...

This drink is all about the presentation—getting a clear separation of white (piña colada) from red (strawberry daiquiri).

First, blend together 2.5 ounces of your favorite rum with 1 cup of ice and 4 ounces of piña colada mix. Blend until smooth and then set aside. Rinse out your blender and add 2.5 ounces of the same rum, 1 cup of ice and 4 ounces of strawberry daiquiri mix. Now, layer in a hurricane glass the pina colada and strawberry daiquiri creating a red and white stripe.

Okay, so I could not pass up talking about this wonderful all-inclusive resort today!  The reason – I was sent a picture on FB of their fantastic Caesar Salad from their outdoor cafe.  Why didn’t I think of taking the picture myself when I was there last October?

So here’s a little info on this resort which about 20 minutes south of Cancun Airport:

A modern marvel in contemporary design, Secrets Silversands Riviera  brings sophistication and distinction to the Riviera Maya. This all-suite resort presents “Unlimited-Luxury” in an innovative way featuring suspended beds, chic modern fabrics, alluring décor and captivating lighting. Gourmet à la carte restaurants, eight posh bars and the lavish Secrets Spa by Pevonia are just some of the indulgent amenities set amidst the silvery surroundings.

Oceanview Suite

Yes, this room is GREAT!  Neil & I unfortunately had a garden/very partial oceanview, but we still enjoyed it.  If you are considering a trip to Mexico, drop me a line and I would be happy to book this for your next vacation memory!
