MID-WEEK MIXERS by Naomi Blackburn of The Pub and Grub Forum

070713 011My husband and I love Hawaii. I mean we really love Hawaii. Anytime we can head there or find some ways to celebrate this dynamic state…we are there.

I wanted to develop a mimosa that partners the two things that I live on when I head there. Pineapple and coconut is it. I found developing mimosas for Midweek Mixers a perfect opportunity to do this. So, here is another Naomi Blackburn Original…


Now, let’s get started:

This is SO simple!

Really, really simple!

The Hawaiian Mimosa


1 can frozen pineapple juice, thawed
1 can coconut WATER (NOT MILK!)
Pink Moscato, WELL CHILLED!


1) In a container, combine the pineapple concentrate and coconut water. Stir to blend well. Then CHILL WELL! Mixture will need to be stirred. Chill flutes.

2) Pour two ounces of pineapple/coconut juice in chilled flute and top with Pink Moscato.

3) If desired, serve with pineapple wedge.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
