12 years ago my husband and I set off on our honeymoon to Mexico. This vacation, in a beautiful ocean side resort, was a wedding gift which made it possible for us to actually take a honeymoon. We spent our time relaxing, taking in the culture and enjoying the weather. Our resort even had a swim up bar in the pool where we enjoyed authentic piña colada. Being young and just out of college this was an amazing experience, one we have yet to repeat. My husband and I still reminisce about those piña coladas, they were seriously delicious. In an effort to capture that tropical taste and feeling, I made a refreshing coconut lime cocktail that combines all the flavors synonymous with summer.
