Happy Memorial Day from Communications, Ink!

This holiday weekend, we hope you find some time to relax and enjoy the company of family and friends in this “socially distant” time. We have put together a few ideas to get you started. Oh and, the Gumby Slumber is just as good with or without rum! So relax and enjoy…

Start a fun game show from your living room

Even if you can’t gather in person, playing Kahoot! with your family and friends is a great way to stay connected, have some fun together, and even learn something new about each other.

Check out Kahoot
The Gumby Slumber
1 part pineapple juice
1 part cranberry juice
1 part orange juice
1 part Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1 part Parrot Bay Rum
Fresh coconut

How to Make It: 

Mix ingredients and serve chilled.
Garnish with fresh coconut.
For an extra kick, marinate the coconut garnish in 151 Rum.

Goat Cheese Balls

Mix together a package of cream cheese and a log of goat cheese until thoroughly combined, then use your hands to roll chunks of the cheese into small balls. Combine chopped parsley, thyme, bacon bits and chopped walnuts on a plate and roll each cheese ball in the coating until covered. Pop a stick into each cheese ball and enjoy some socially-distanced eating.

Mini Cuban Sandwiches

Place slices of ham atop slices of a fresh baguette, along with squares of Swiss cheese and a mini gherkin pickle. Finish with a small food pick for easy eating!

We hope you enjoy your family this Memorial Day weekend in any way you feel comfortable. Try to have some fun and relax. We all deserve it!
Be well,
Cara, Cazzy and Melissa
