Well summer might finally be coming to an end soon but it’s hotter now than it has been and I’m happy to be able to cool off with these Grapefuit Paloma Pops! It’s a great way to enjoy an adult beverage at the end of a particularly hot day or after outdoor chores.
One of my friends at work had been telling me that I really had to try a Moscow Mule. She insisted it was her favorite drink and that I had to be sure and try one in a copper mug because it really brings out the flavor of the ginger beer. Well I’d never had ginger beer so it didn’t sound fabulous to me but then I tried one, now I have a new favorite drink!

It’s that time of year – during the holiday season there seem to be lots of parties and opportunities for entertaining, and it’s a great time to try out some new cocktail ideas. Last year some of my girlfriends and I decided to change our usual annual Christmas cookie exchange party into a cocktail recipe exchange party and it has now become a new tradition. It’s lots of fun to have everyone bring the ingredients for their own favorite cocktail then we sample each others concoctions and exchange recipes.
This year I’m making this Twisted Raspberry Rum & Coke, it’s a fabulous twist on a classic cocktail and I can’t wait to share it with my friends.
- 4 ounces Coke
- 2 ounces white rum
- 6 fresh raspberries
- ice cubes
- Sprig of fresh mint (optional)
- In a glass add ice cubes
- Pour in Coke
- Add rum and raspberries.
- Stir. Garnish with mint if desired.

Disclosure – I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for CRYSTAL LIGHT. I received a gift card to purchase CRYSTAL LIGHT products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
My kids and I are all hooked on CRYSTAL LIGHT – I always keep some of the individual packets in my desk at work to flavor my water throughout the day and the kids all have their favorite flavors. I make pitchers of Cherry Pomegranate CRYSTAL LIGHT for them at the house and I really like the Lemonade and the Raspberry Lemonade flavors for work. I enjoy knowing that I’m not serving the kids sugary drinks and that they’re only five calories per serving. Even better though was learning about the Randarita cocktail – you pour a shot of vodka over ice, add Raspberry Lemonade flavored CRYSTAL LIGHT and a splash of lemon lime soda. OMG delicious!!
The fabulous Randarita cocktail was created by Miranda Lambert who says she drinks one during each concert. Being such a huge fan of her music I was thrilled to learn about the Platinum Points Program where you can earn points for buying CRYSTAL LIGHT products that you can redeem for rewards like Miranda Lambert music downloads, CDs, mugs, t-shirts and even an autographed guitar.
I used the promo code “mirandaic” for 30 Platinum Points when I signed up for the program using my Facebook account, and then I earned 300 more points for buying these three packages at Walmart, 100 points for each package. Once you sign up you can also earn 10 points for each friend that you refer to the program.
It’s super easy to sign up and earn points, all you have to do is register at the Earn Platinum Points site, shop for CRYSTAL LIGHT products at Walmart, snap a photo of your receipt with your smartphone and choose from a variety of Miranda Lambert rewards! I’m personally saving up my points for either a Miranda Lambert Platinum Tumbler for 1000 points or a Platinum Rhinestone T-shirt for 1200 points, or hopefully both. Let me know what you’d like to save up your points for!
