Chick Drink for Summer

Any drink that includes pineapple in the recipe is a drink I most definitely will love....they're chick drinks, plain and simple.  And when I drink one, I envision myself on a warm sandy beach basking in the sun.......then I'm startled by some random ranch noise and as my eyes open and I'm brought back to kid's 6' x 6' sandbox.  

It works for me when it needs to.

I'll be going to BlogHer12, a blogging conference, in NYC in just a few weeks.  One of the keynote speakers is none other than Martha Stewart.  The Queen of Entertainment, right?  To get myself into the Martha Stewart vibe, this chick drink, from Martha's website, is making an appearance in my life this weekend.
