This cocktail, “Squeeze the Day”, is the second of two themed drinks I created in honor of the Mom’s on the Move Podcast based out of Greenville, SC.
The “Jennifers” (both hosts are named Jennifer, which I love), created their local Facebook group and podcast because: “We want to empower each other and create a place for understanding, while also navigating tough topics, with a few laughs in between. We, as women and moms, are in this together.” Click here to connect with the Moms on the Move community, watch/listen to their podcast, and receive their exclusive biweekly newsletter. Pimento & Prose recipes and blogs are also currently featured in the Mom’s on the Move biweekly digital newsletters along with exclusive local recommendations & coupons to local Greenville shops!
Make sure to tag us @pimentoandprose and @momsonthemove_gvl when you make this exclusive cocktail at home and use the hashtags #summerberrygvl & #squeezethedaygvl too!
I used a ton of in-season, local produce for both of these drinks. The vision for this was wanting something summery and citrusy, yet sweet to sip on for the women in my life to have a great tasting, balanced drink, they could make for themselves or scale up for a party!
Moms are great at seizing the day, so I loved the play on words with the fact that this had two fresh-squeezed juices in it too!
We were also lucky enough to partner with a local Greenville restaurant, Limoncello, to be able to use their restaurant bar and house-made limoncello for this recipe, some of our photos, and videos for behind the scenes on how to make these drinks (check out our handles above for those later today)! However, their version of this tasty liquor is not available for at-home purchase/consumption, so we used normal store-bought limoncello for our recipe testing below.
You can also find the Frankly’s Grapefruit Vodka we used in the Upstate, SC area for around $20-$24 a bottle, at Liquor XPress 3 in Easley, 19 Wine & Spirits in Greenville, or Total Wine in Greenville, or if you happen to have another grapefruit vodka to use up at home, cheers, you can use that too! We loved the fact that Frankly’s had cinnamon, a touch of maple syrup as a sweetener, was #glutenfree, organic, and even Kosher as well!
