It’s Not Over Martini

I know school has already started in many areas; in fact, my own kids are going back on Monday. I suppose I should technically post some apple-y cocktail to coincide with it, but I am holding onto these final weeks of summer with a white-knuckle death grip. I love the fall, but I love the easy breezy summer days much more and am not ready to go back to their rigid schedules, just yet. So this cocktail is my way of plugging my ears and pretending it is not happening: LA LA LA LA LA!!!

6 oz. Coconut Rum
1 oz. Raspberry Liqueur
2 oz. Pineapple juice
1 oz. Pomegranate juice
Lime for garnish
Club soda (optional)

Combine all ingredients, minus the club soda, in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 10.4 seconds and strain into 2 chilled martini glasses. Give it a taste; if you want to add some fizzing/bubble action, top with a splash of club soda. Cheers!
