It isn't that we drink too much, we just drink frequently.  We never drank at the beach (well, once we took a few airline bottles).  And we never had beer in the car while we were driving around during the day (well, we did stop for a single cocktail during a very long drive).  I never woke up with a hangover.

Many nights, after a day of playing on the beach, or driving around seeing sights, we would come back to the condo.  After a drink or two there (and maybe one in a plastic glass for around the pool), we'd get dressed up and head out to the "fancy" resorts where they had nice hors d' oeuvres, entertainment, luxurious surroundings, and of course, fabulous cocktails.

Notice my Happy Hour shirt.

It isn't like we drink too much... 
we just happen to enjoy it frequently.

A mai tai for 2.
HAPHOUR04.JPG
Taking a picture of myself... don't know why.
HAPHOUR05.JPG
These were the best mai tais.  A little place in Laheina.  Not a fancy resort.
HAPHOUR06.JPG
This red drink was good too.

Getting ready for another night on tropical cocktails.

I was disappointed with this drink.  The picture of it had much more junk (flowers and palm fronds) in the glass.  There is only so much you can do with rum and juice.  It is about the presentation.

Tropical itch -- complete with backscratcher.

A delightful tropical martini... no flowers though. They lost 2 points for presentation.
HAPHOUR11.JPG
Jack almost always had mai tais.  This one had a white orchid plus 2 pieces fruit. They are back to even on presentation.
HAPHOUR12.JPG
They could have earned bonus points with a parasol.
HAPHOUR13.JPG
But we never complained.  We are happy drunks!
HAPHOUR14.JPG
Greg might be drinking a "Lava Flow" here. That is pina colada with some strawberry puree.
HAPHOUR15.JPG
At home, Greg only drinks shots of tequila with a diet Coke back.
HAPHOUR16.JPG
I rarely drink the same thing twice in a night.
HAPHOUR17.JPG
It is not all about booze. We also order food, or "pupu platters". This time we happened to order a variety of desserts.
HAPHOUR18.JPG
Before.  A+ for presentation.
HAPHOUR19.JPG
After.  A++ for taste.
HAPHOUR20.JPG
Still another mai tai.
HAPHOUR21.JPG
Finally.  Greg gets a drink served in a fresh coconut.
HAPHOUR22.JPG
Guy gets one too.  His has an orchid. 3 points for presentation.
HAPHOUR23.JPG
How sweet.... the mai tai that is.
HAPHOUR24.JPG
Two fisted drinking.  Or perhaps a better caption would be the often seen t-shirt slogan:
"nice papayas"

Over the years, I have filled out many questionnaires, surveys and such for various studies and the like.  It seems like once you mention you have more than "3-4" drinks a week, the next question is always something like "have you ever sought help for your drinking problem".  My only drinking problem is slow waitresses and non-creative bartenders.
