“They say that a man has needs, but a woman has them too.”  I say, “Give that girl a drink!”  How about something with blood oranges from Provence and mango and passion fruit from Brazil? Mmm, yeah, that sounds right.  X-Rated Fusion Liquor promises hints of all these flavors. Now make it a martini!  Cuz the girl has really got it bad…

It’s Friday,  five o’clock.  Punch the clock, workday is done.  The day was a hot one.  Hell, the whole week was like living in the tropics.  Might as well keep with the theme and drink something that has a little bit of tropical flare (along with little bits of coconut pulp!).  Loosen your tie.  Crack open a can of coconut water…and let the weekend begin.
