Fiery Phoenix

Back in Miami for another station visit. This time it was for a much needed software upgrade to the handheld scanning devices in use at the station level. I, our application vendor, and a contractor descended on Miami from three different ports of call, and knocked out the upgrade in a few hours. We then spent some time walking about, seeing it in action, making sure there were no issues, and placating station management. All in all, a good business trip.
Needless to say, after the day was done, a tall drink and a meal was on order. We went next door to the Catch of the Day, walking through a trailing arm of Hurricane Ike to get there. The walk is only about 70 yards, but by the time I got there I was wet to the core. Sore from the previous nights soccer game, I was unable to run, so I was considerably more wet than my colleagues who ran, smartly, on ahead of me. After an excellent meal (Argentinian Churrasco) and a mojito, we retired back to the hotel bar for a nightcap.
The Crowne Plaza in Miami has this "What’s in the Stars" campaign and have drink talkers about the place in the form of a recipe wheel. This photo is of the Scorpio (my sign) drink, which if memory serves is called a "Fiery Phoenix"
The Scorpio or Flaming Phoenix
Tasty, although the bartender admitted to this being his first one to make. I think once he learns the proper portions, it will be excellent. So, if you find yourself in Miami, visit the Crowne Plaza and have yourself a drink corresponding to your sign.
