I have continued my island hopping for the summer and ended up in Martha’s Vineyard for the week with friends. We all had an amazing time and great beach weather. My girlfriend rented an amazing house on the island for entertaining on the water in Oak Bluffs. It was really, a great week!
If you haven’t had a chance to try Pimm’s , please do! It’s a gin-based liquor that has spices and fruit juices. The Pimm’s cocktail was one of my favorite drinks made by our in house mixologist in MV. Pimm’s cocktail: fresh muddled fruit and ginger ale. Great for aperitivo after the beach.
We ended up on the way back from South Beach, Bad Martha’s. Its a brand new brewery on the island that offers a variety of beers. Summer Shandy’s and fresh pretzels! You can’t go wrong. This is a must go to on your next trip to MV.
One of my most favorite parts of Martha’s Vineyard is Edgartown. It’s a very nice part of the island with great shopping and some really great restaurants. We were in the mood for more of a lounge on our last night, so we headed to Alchemy on Main Street in Edgartown. The menu is great, you can’t go wrong with anything you get. We ended up with Burgers and a mash potaoto salad. Everything was fantastic!
If you haven’t had a chance to get over to MV for a day or two, you should. Rent a bike, go to a few of the beaches and try some of the great restaurants. It’s really an easy ride on the ferry to get to a fun and great vacation spot. Enjoy the rest of the week!
