    I’d make a cosmo out of the cranberry grapefruit– rimmed with grapefruit sugar!

    I happen to think that the Blueberry Pomegranate would be wonderful on it’s own and insanely good in your basic Pomegranate Martini recipe.

    I’m thirsty now.

    1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
    2 oz. Absolute Citron vodka
    1 oz. Cointreau liquor
    Cup of ice
    Splash of Hansen’s Blueberry Pomegranate Sparkling

    Shaken and poured into your most fabulous martini glasses!

    I had dragonfruit once, and I loved the flavor! I think having a unique flavor like that a party would be a hit! I would just stick to the dragonfruit with a bit of vodka and topped with a curly orange rind for the looks.

    I really would love to own all of the Sex and the City.
