It seems like every hour you are on a beach vacation is cocktail hour, but on Antigua — which is on Atlantic time, and therefore is an hour ahead of our standard Eastern time zone — cocktail hour is actually here.
My drink of choice this vacation has become a pina colada, and tonight I’ll probably order another one, or two. Kish is astonished that I’ve ordered them, because I almost never drink distilled spirits, particularly in fruity concoctions. Here at the Cocobay Resort, however, the pina coladas are exceptionally good — well-blended, carefully made, and not knee-buckling in their strength. They go down easy after a hard day of beach walking, snoozing in the sun, reading, and snapping a few photos.
