Thanks for your sweet comment Velva. I have been so busy lately with meetings, taking care of Grands, and getting ready for holidays that I haven't been able to post much on my blog. The Red Beans and Rice is delicious and I really like Emeril's recipe. Your cocktail sounds so yummy. Will have to give that a try. I love a good cocktail in the evening.

I sure wish I liked gin. Maybe I could do this with vodka. I love Arnold Palmers with lemonade and tea.

Farmchick said...

*sigh* I do love the limoncello. Nice recipe.

This drink is going to get me into trouble. I already drink sweet tea mixed with lemonade. But spiked? Watch out!

I have been wondering about that cocktail - it sounds so wonderful. It looks so pretty ... and harmless. And I could go for a taste of summer right now... (she says as she plants spruce tops in the outside pots...)

T.W. Barritt at Culinary Types said...

That is quite a combo of ingredients! Do we know who Leland Palmer was?

That Girl said...

It kind of looks like summer to me too! But in the best way possible.

I like that description, "Looks like autumn, tastes like summer." A nice looking beverage you have there.

Hope your birthday was wonderful, Velva.

Hungry Dog said...

Limoncello and grapefruit juice are two of my favorite things to drink--this sounds refreshing and perfect for any season!

a little summer never hurts, especially when it's as delish as this!
