Have you ever found yourself wanting a signature cocktail? Every spring I go through a phase of wanting to have a signature cocktail to offer when the need arises. In preparation each spring I taste test new creations. This pomegranate mango cocktail was a welcome sight at the end of a long day.
Please know I am not a mixologist…but I appreciate things that taste good. A cocktail that starts out with a bottle of pomegranate juice and ends with a sprinkle of blueberries straight from the freezer. Full of flavor and little fuss.
It pays to take a moment to welcome in spring and all it has to offer. For once instead of looking up as I often do, I looked down.
Happy Spring! Thank you for reading!
