Vacation. That sounds vaguely familiar....

I thought that when we moved to Florida that every day would be a vacation. In many ways it is. In many ways it isn't.

I thought being 4 1/2 hours from South Beach meant we'd be there all the time, lol. How naive I was. We did take a trip down to Key West last December, which was great. But my sweet, sweet South Beach...it has been too long.

I need my Bellini's at Nikki Beach on a Sunday morning...a little hair of the dog, easing me into another fun filled night.

I need to feel connected to all the tropical, exotic, care free fun that attracted me to the Sunshine State, and put me on my path to Spring Hill. Like a doctor, I'm writing myself a script to be filled ASAP.

Bellini Recipe:

"The Bellini is a peachy version of the Champagne Cocktail and makes a great brunch cocktail. The story behind the drink is that is was created in the 1930's or 40's at Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy by bartender Giuseppe Cipriani and was named after a favorite painter, Giovanni Bellini. Originally, the Bellini was intended to use sparkling Italian wine and is still made that way in Italy, elsewhere it is often made with Champagne. Also, try the mocktail version, the Baby Bellini.
2 oz peach juice or peach puree
4 oz Champagne (*I use a prosecco)
Pour the peach juice or peach puree into a Champagne flute.
Slowly add the Champagne. "
