POM Cello-Rita

Remember a couple of weeks ago I posted my Cello-Rita recipe?  I had come up with the cocktail for a contest that my friend Courtney over at CocoCooks was holding and guess what?  I won!!!  Yay!  Thanks so much Courtney!  Expect to see a lot more drink recipes when I receive the book I won!!!

It’s summer and we spend A LOT of time in and around the swimming pool.  My youngest swims probably about 3 times a day sometimes more.  Here are some pictures of my youngest and our crazy Golden Retriever who really thinks he is one of the kids…

Crazy dog swimming under water!  He really thinks he is one of them!

Last Sunday I was chillin’ in the pool.  A necessity in the hot and steamy days of summer here in South West Florida when T. walked out of the house carrying a nice cold drink for me!  When asked what it was he told me to guess.  I took one long sip of it and I knew instantly and it was delicious!!!


POM Cello-Rita

2 parts of Tequila El Conde Azul Blanco (or your favorite tequila)
1 part Limoncello (homemade preferably, thanks Jenn!!!) 
2 parts of your favorite margarita mix
1 part POM Wonderful (hopefully supplied to you by the generous folks at POM Wonderful!)
squeeze of lime

Shake all ingredients and serve over ice.

This is delicious with a salt rim or not. But should be enjoyed on a hot summer day either on the beach or by the pool! Bartender optional but highly recommended!

As Always…

Happy Entertaining!!!

Great twist on this drink. I bet it was so refreshing by the pool.

I can't believe it! I just finished making Jenn's Limoncello and yesterday I received my box of POM Wonderful! I can't wait to try this drink. It looks really good!

I love that picture! I think it is great that your dog enjoys swimming s much...we can't get Pepino near the pool! :-(

This drink looks great - all I need is to get me some tequila, POM and make more limoncello and I am all set! LOL! Maybe I'll just come over instead...

Congrats on your win!
