The Craving: Turquoise water out front, handsome Cuban masseur in back (massaging, naturally), white sand under foot, and palm trees swaying softly in a delicious salty breeze. All that one needs to complete this image is a cocktail – and sometimes only the sweet essence of juicy pineapple and creamy coconut milk on ice will do. Now, if only one could find a way to bottle the masseur.
The Solution: A little spritz of Vanille Pineapple by Comptoir Sud Pacifique, and you’re right there, honey. Beware: Candy cocktails can be dangerous, both by causing you to ingest vast quantities of sugar, and by encouraging you to approach male colleagues with an “I’m on Vacation” vibe rippling off you. Use with caution if you like your job.
