Mai tai for one is fine, but two is better. Reunited, Paul and Marissa want to toast the moment as they sit on the deck of their house, watching the sun set over the ocean. But champagne doesn’t seem right (been there, done that), and then it hits them – what better way to celebrate how far they’ve come than with a couple of mai tais? And boy, have they earned them. Bottoms up!
