Cutie Cocktail

This big kid’s cocktail will kick off your spring season with an Ahhhh…I’ll have another please!

I used Trader Joe’s Sparkling Clementine Flavored Juice Beverage. It’s a blend of 2 Juices –White Grape Juice and Clementine Juice. My new favorite juice!

I also had it without the gin and it was equally as refreshing. This is a great virgin drink to serve your kids when they decide that acting all grown up is way too much fun.

Bon Appetit!
