They’re great for snacking and are incredibly versatile for home cooks, not to mention they’re just gorgeous to look at. Here’s a curated collection of wonderful pieces inspired by our favorite fruit and its flavorful, ruby red juice.

Tax Day Drinking: Coconut Zombie Cocktails
Tiki cocktails are coming back in a big way. Don the Beachcomber would be proud of this island-y fresh twist on the classics. Especially on a day like today. Whew! What a push.
Instead of using pineapple juice, we opted to use POM Hula, which is made with a blend of pomegranate and pineapple juices.   
Here’s how it’s done.
Ingredients:
2 oz spiced navy rum
4 oz POM Hula 
1 oz coconut cream
1 oz orange juice
sprig of mint for garnish 
Add all ingredients to a shaker. Shake and strain into a glass (or coconut) over crushed ice. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg and a sprig of mint. Cheers!

What a Wonderful weekend of music it was at Coachella. We must say that POM made an excellent mixer, and was delightfully refreshing while listening to L.A. local band Poolside. We’ve been recovering all week with some of our fantastic smoothie recipes. What about you?
