Summer Bliss....and Blissini's

Summer. It’s coming to an end.

Well, I rarely step outside during the day Monday to Friday, but my trusty meteorologist has been telling me that the past few days have been pleasant and this weekend is suppose to be nice weather – perfect for that end of summer BBQ.

If you’re like me, you also enjoy those lovely adult beverages that are cool, refreshing and have just enough alcohol to tune out those annoying kiddies next door who think playing Marco-Polo is fun, after EIGHT HOURS. I mean seriously, aren’t your hands pruney yet?

MARCO – POLO – MARCO – POLO – MARCO – POLO.

Sorry, sidetracked.

Anyways, a few weeks ago I made this fab drink – yes, courtesy of Giada again. It’s a Summer Blissini and is the perfect compliment to a nice brunch/lunch outside. Enjoy!

Summer Blissini

Prosecco, chilled (I recommend a dry Prosecco since you are mixing this with both OJ and Pom juice which will make it sweet)
Orange juice, chilled (non-pulp)
Pomegranate juice, chilled (Trader Joe’s had this great Sparkling Pom Juice that worked great)
Mint leaves, for garnish

Directions
Combine equal parts of the Prosecco, orange juice, and pomegranate juice. Pour into glasses and garnish with a mint leaves. Serve and enjoy!
