Following on from my last post about our Spring fashion event and our delicious 'Ice- Cream Cake' section of the parade, we had some fun with our "Hello Sailor" theme. Here we featured navy, white and red pieces, cute, fun pieces that would be perfect to wear to catch a sailor's eye.

1 1/4 oz dark rum
3/4 oz white rum
1/4 oz coffee liquer
