Put on your bikini and slip into something delicious!

The fabulous Naomi Blackburn has been promising for ages to come and visit me here in Florida…but since she is so super busy this month, she is instead sending four weeks of delightful cool drinks created just for poolside sipping. So grab your sun tan lotion, a bikini and let’s go. This Pool party is a month long, so be here every Wednesday and be ready to dive into the fun!

MID-WEEK MIXERS by Naomi Blackburn … Introducing the Swimming Pool

(no kidding, that’s the name of this lucious drink!)

080213 006August is swimming pool drinks for +Bette Lee Crosby‘s Midweek Mixers. When I came across this drink on Pinterest, I knew it would be the kick off this month. It is called THE SWIMMING POOL…creative ain’t I?!? This drink was different than what I thought it was going to be, but it had a gorgeous color partnered with a pretty unusual coconut and pineapple taste. I loved the use of coconut milk instead of water in this drink and I LOVED the color blue it turned out.

So here we go!:


1/4 oz Blue Curacao
1 1/2 oz Pineapple Rum
1 oz Coconut Vodka
2 oz Pineapple Juice
3/4 oz Coconut MILK (NOT WATER!)
1/4 oz heavy cream


1) In a metal shaker filled with ice, pour all ingredients

2) Shake for 30 seconds and pour into a hurricane glass

3) Garnish with pineapple and cherries

    “this” I should have waited until after I did emails, before I started sipping. LOL
