What’s in Her Bag?

With more than 100 million albums sold (her newest, The Standards, was released this fall), Latin-American songstress Gloria Estefan is clearly a mainstay in the music industry. In her hometown of Miami Beach, she's also a regular on the sand, where she savors time relaxing with a glass of her specialty cocktail (Get the recipe!).

"My ideal day would include playing in the surf, then lying on the sand surrounded by people I love." And that includes her dogs, who love the beach. "I make sure they have ice water available and some place with shade that they can sit under."
