Special Request: Pirate Punch

I am having bartender's block. I was asked for a punch recipe for October's "Treasure's In The Quarter" gala in St. Augustine. To get the creative juices flowing, I figured I would let everyone know about this event. My glass of The Lash Spiced Rum should help too!

“Treasures in the Quarter” is being hosted by City of St. Augustine, Flagler Health Care Foundation and United Way of St. Johns County. It will be held in the newly renovated Spanish Quarter on October 2. This will also be a kick-off of sorts for the brand new St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum.

Everyone knows I have a piratical soul, I can barely control. So it is a perfect pairing! Now back to conjuring!

50 Photos Challenge #3; Love & Luck

I chose this photo of TikiWife and me for Jimmy Buffett's "Love And Luck".

Love And Luck by Jimmy Buffett
With a little love and luck
You will get by
With a little love and luck
We'll take the sky
In this mangled modern world
You've got to try
Try a little love and luck
And you'll get by
