Spring Break for Grown Ups!

(as seen in my syndicated monthly column in Where Magazine)

Have you recently pictured yourself reclining on a fluffy beach towel, sipping a tropical drink under a palm tree, waves lapping at your sun-warmed feet - only to snap back to the reality of a dimly-lit boardroom and yet another power-point presentation on how to increase company-wide employee productivity?

College kids shouldn’t be the only ones to indulge in a warm-weather escape. Puerto Rico’s Porta del Sol attracts high-end travelers with its luxurious accommodations (like Relais & Chateaux’s exclusive Horned Dorset), world-class surfing, scuba diving and golf courses and, of course, its refreshing Mojitos!

After touring the distillery in San Juan, bring the party home with a bottle of Bacardi rum’s newest flavor: Peach Red. Muddle lime, sugar and mint in the bottom of a tall glass, add ice and rum – and you’ve got a vacation in a glass.

(OK, now, get back to work!)
