Martini’s and Shots and Havana on the Rocks

Heads up, this post may contain affiliate links and any sales made through such links will reward me a small commission.

It is late afternoon when we decide to do a photoshoot. The theme is Havana on the rocks.

Here are the rocks.


Here’s the Havana. From several angles.

Which is your favorite?

We watch the wedding and then return to the room, shower and relax on the balcony.


We dress for dinner and head off to Toni’s.



We start with a nice bottle of wine. This Muga Rioja is one of our favorites.



Seafood app.




Ceasear salad.



We both get the rib eye, which are thin, but taste delicious. I had a rib eye last night that was much thicker, but it was enough to feed me for three dinners. I don’t have any issues with the size of the rib eye at the Grand.

Zung has some dessert.


Then we are off to the Lobby Bar, where Daniel makes a bunch of goofy faces.

I tell him I want to try a shot tonight. I don’t want tequila. I don’t want anything that tastes alcohol-ey. He recommends a chocolate cake shot.



That is exactly what it tastes like. It would be easy to do a bunch of these, but I won’t.

Lisa, one of my Trip Advisor/Facebook friends comes by with her hubs. She’s a Grand regular too. I think this is her fourth visit.

A couple at the end of the bar says, “Chocolate cake shots for everyone!” Oh no! It would be rude to refuse.

I have a cucumber martini. I finish off the evening with a chocolate martini.



Tomorrow we have to get a fairly early start. We are going to Jade Now resort to visit my good friend Tami and her crew.

  1. Love all the shoe pics!! Those shoes rock Chica A!!!

  2. First picture is my favorite.

  3. Ahh, chocolate cake shots… A liquid form of dessert ? I would have most likely over indulged, Andrea. Nice dress btw ! Best dressed lady at the resort 😎

  4. I’m heading to the Grand in a couple of weeks. Are there any issues with seaweed at the moment? I heard there was a lot of it earlier this year, but it looks good there in your pictures.

    1. This is not a live report. This trip was back in June. Seaweed is the kind of thing that can come and go within hours.

  5. Andrea, you know it would be very rude to refuse “bar shots” love the shoes
