Sunset on Captiva Island with my Island Breeze, I Mean Mike’s Island Breeze.

If you’re a regular reader here at We Have It All, then you know that I’ve been on vacation for the last week and a half. We spent a week on Sanibel Island, Florida and then headed off to Disney World for a couple of days. We should have done this vacation backwards and visited Disney World first and then spent a week in Sanibel just to relax after all the chaos of Disney. It was so nice and relaxing to be on the beach for a whole week.

One night we visited the Mucky Duck restaurant. This is just a little restaurant located at the very tip of Captiva Island, Florida and it just so happens to be the side of the island where the sun sets. It’s usually a beautiful sunset and everyone who visits Sanibel or Captiva Island knows to hit the Mucky Duck specifically for the sunset. It’s so busy that we had to get there hours early to eat and hang out just to get a good seat out back on the beach… we went with my sister and her hubby and my dad and step-mom.

Since we had a few hours to kill, we ordered a few drinks to help the time pass. Mike was simple and had a beer because he’s not a drinker and doesn’t know much about cocktails. I on the other hand, bartended for a couple of years and have a few favorite cocktails. I should probably persuade Mike to change his mind by making him some cocktails for guys. From this list of guy cocktails I found on the HomeWetBar Blog, I’d probably make the Gold Rush as it is nice and strong! Unfortunately I am still nursing Baby Jack so I could not drink – I could only sip haha.

cocktailOne of my favorite cocktails is the Island Breeze, go figure haha. I just love pineapple and cranberry mixed with the rum – yum! I made Mike order this and drink most of it so I could have a few tastes of it. Of course the fruity cocktails are usually the lady’s drinks so I thought it was funny making Mike drink it. Of course he liked it and wanted a cocktail of his own after that, but he didn’t know what to try. He ended up sticking to beer like the simple guy he is. That was fine with me… I like my simple guy, he’s easy to please!

What’s your favorite cocktail of choice?



  1. I like anything with coconut! Fresh fruit is always fun, but only for special vacation occasions. At home, I just like a glass of wine.

  2. I love Peach Schnapps so my favorite is a Fuzzy Navel. I love whiskey sours too, but I usually just drink Margaritas!
