Drink Recipe: Volcano Screwdriver with Mongibello Blood Orange Juice

What! A blog post? Yes, I do still blog from time to time. In fact, I have a backlog of posts just waiting for me to finish and publish. It’s just that, well, life gets in the way sometimes, okay a lot of times. But never fear – I have come upon a chunk of free time in my schedule so I’m returning to this blog that I love, in the town I love. Stay with me here, because there’s a tasty cocktail at the end of this post.

Mongibello Juice glass

What you see here is some pretty amazing juice. It is Mongibello Blood Orange Juice, available at Bristol Farms and on sale through October 16 (that’s next Tuesday, so make your field trip to Bristol Farms NOW). The orange trees grow on the side of Mt. Etna in Italy, where the soil is perfect and the juice is squeezed fresh, then frozen for its journey all the way to us in The Bubble. That means it tastes heavenly.

What’s great about Mongibello Blood Orange Juice is that it’s not only delicious for the whole family, but also, you can make a cocktail out of it!

Because Mt. Etna is a volcano, I went for a volcano-inspired hybrid cocktail this time. May I present to you…

The Volcano Screwdriver with Mongibello Orange Juice:

Part mimosa, part volcano, part screwdriver, but all Mongibello, and all delicious. I know because let’s just say I tasted several versions of this recipe until I got it just right.

Gramma’s Quick and Dirty Chicken Soup

KidCloud – a Babysitter at the Mall (With Giveaway!)

Zaira Tinoco, the lovely owner of KidCloud, a drop-in daycare center at The Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks, invited me and my boys to check out her newly opened location last month. My kids moaned and groaned – they hate leaving the house in general, and I can’t say I blame them. I don’t relish […]

Go Back To Printed With Minted

The trend toward e-Christmas cards makes me sad. I love sending and receiving real cards, and this year I’m making mine using minted. You can purchase this design here I’ve sent actual physical Christmas cards to friends and family since…maybe since I graduated from college? Certainly long before my children were born. It’s way more […]
