might not be at the top of your trop­i­cal cock­tail list, but Ta­pas On The Bay serves up a re­ally great one for brunch, and their breezy deck over­look­ing the calm ma­rina wa­ters is just the place to en­joy a cou­ple any time of day. Plenty of kick from Worces­ter­shire and hot sauce, a good squeeze of lo­cal lime and tons of ice make Ta­pas Bloody Mary the per­fect al­co­holic ac­com­pa­ni­ment to the com­fort-style break­fasts and lunches that pack the res­tau­rant's day­time' Lil' Chef' menu.

If you're look­ing for a more fruity day­time tip­ple at Ta­pas, try one of their three home­made San­grias—the full and fruity red, cit­rusy white or cel­e­bra­tory sparkling cava ver­sions will def­i­nitely hit the spot. They're also avail­able by the pitcher to share with friends.

are a fresh, nat­u­ral, whole­some part of a health­ful diet and you'll find them pop­ping up in lo­cal Saint Lu­cian cui­sine through­out the sum­mer un­til around Oc­to­ber. They’re ir­re­sistibly rich in flavour and pro­vide vi­tal nu­tri­ents and phy­to­chem­i­cals. Av­o­ca­dos nat­u­rally con­tain many of the 13 vi­ta­mins that the body ab­so­lutely needs: vi­ta­mins A, C, D, E, K and the B vi­ta­mins (thi­amine, ri­boflavin, niacin, pan­tothenic acid, bi­otin, vi­ta­min B-6, vi­ta­min B-12 and fo­late).

Av­o­ca­dos pro­vide nearly 20 es­sen­tial nu­tri­ents, in­clud­ing fi­bre, potas­sium, Vi­ta­min E, B-vi­ta­mins, and folic acid. They also act as a "nu­tri­ent booster" by en­abling the body to ab­sorb more fat-sol­u­ble nu­tri­ents, such as al­pha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.

So add a slice of creamy Lu­cian av­o­cado to your salad and do your body some de­li­cious good!
