This looks like a delicious cocktail, I love the description.
sounds delicious!!! gloria
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.Carolyn/A Southerners Notebook
This looks great! I have a bottle of homemade limoncello just sitting in my pantry….yum!
A definite refresher anytime!
Woohee, that looks good.
Now I wonder if that will fix my cough 🙂 Diane

I sure wish I liked gin. Maybe I could do this with vodka. I love Arnold Palmers with lemonade and tea.
*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!
Oh, yeah… I'm ready for one of these!! blessings ~ tanna
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…)

That is quite a combo of ingredients! Do we know who Leland Palmer was?
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.
It looks like fall in a glass- beautiful

You always have the best cocktails. This looks wonderful and I'm a huge fan of limoncello.
I would love one too!
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!
I adore your cocktail posts Velva. This one looks amazingly refreshing and super delicious.
