Isle of Pines Cocktail

Lift your glass and revisit a time when it’s okay to simply relax and enjoy! It’s okay, if it is only Thursday.

  1. Dang, La Diva just LOVES a nice, tart cocktail! This sounds delish! Pom juice rocks, doesn't it? (By the way, Costco offers a pure pomegranate juice at less than $7 for a 64 oz. jug, cheaper than POM.)
