Equally gorgeous during a sunrise or a sunset, this classic tequila drink uses juice and grenadine built over ice for a beautiful visual effect.

Aloha! :)

Recent Recipes and Articles:
Haven't dropped by lately? Here are the currently featured recipes for cocktails, mocktails, reviews, and other articles since my last newsletter:

The classic, available in many fruity flavours, is perfect for any outdoor summer party or beach-themed party in the winter. Serve with a slice of lime and a grass skirt!
Red and slightly sweetened from the blackcurrant flavoured creme de cassis, this martini cocktail is a delightful change from the ordinary.
This classic cocktail uses a cube of sugar sprinkled with bitters, brandy, and champagne (or sparkling wine). Very elegant!
Conjuring images of Elvis and breezy beaches, the classic Blue Hawaiian cocktail is a combination of delicious tropical flavours.
There are very few things on this earth that taste better than the combination of raspberry and chocolate. And when you make this martini, it will be love at first sip.

Michelle's Swizzle-Stick Tip
Occasionally, the big liquor companies offer freebies and sweepstakes that could see you a winner. Bacardi "Big Apple" liquor is all set to send eight lucky winners to Sin City! Enter to win a trip to Las Vegas at the Bacardi website by texting in before September 15, 2006.

Cutting Back On Booze?
You can eliminate most, if not all, of the alcohol in the cocktail recipes I feature and write about. To find heavenly recipes for beverages that don't involve any booze at all, check out my always-growing section on Mocktails (which are alcohol-free cocktails). You'll enjoy all of the fun without sacrificing taste!

Simply Dazzle 'Em...
No one needs to know you require advance notice to be the host(ess) with the mostest! You'll be prepared for guests in a flash with these simple and delicious Canada Day and Fourth of July cocktail recipes:

Notes On A Cocktail Napkin...
While quite a few new folks have been signing up for this newsletter (Howdy! by the way) I've been wrapping up the graphics for my dessert drinks book, and fiddling with the few small details that my editor has sent me about the manuscript. Writing a book is a dream come true for me... and luckily I have an awesome editor who is making it a virtually painless experience. I have been swamped with renovating our kitchen and moving into our new house, so I'm extra thankful for her patience and guidance :) I'll keep you updated and include sneak peeks of the recipes and graphics as the release date gets closer.

In the time between the last newsletter there have been four new cocktail recipes added. You'll find them listed to the left. I've been adding a new recipe every Wednesday, so that's the best time to check the site for the latest updates. You can also come by the forum and ask a question, share a recipe, or find out what else has been happening around the site. No matter the day of the week, stop by the BellaOnline Cocktails site regularly to snag my best recipes!
