Pineapple Pomegranate Spritzer at a Pink Picnic for the Cure

Pink Picnic for the Cure

Last week I held my Cook for the Cure event.

Cook for the Cure

It was just a casual get together at a park near my house with some friends and their kids—a “pink picnic” if you will. It was a wonderful opportunity to get together and let our kids go crazy at the park.  I loved that I could have time with friends and raise some money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure at the same time.  If only I could always accomplish such effective multi-tasking!

Pink Picnic -- Cook for the Cure

I served a fabulous Chinese Chicken salad, using a recipe from Fine Cooking (I replaced the snow peas in the recipe with fresh sliced cucumbers) that sports healthier baked wontons, so that you still get that fabulous crunch, but with a lot less calories!  We also had fresh strawberries and pink heart almond butter spritz cookies.  To top it off, I served a refreshing Pineapple Pomegranate Spritzer that I dreamed up in honor of the picnic.  The spritzer is so easy to make that I hesitate to call it a recipe, but here you go!

Bless your heart for hosting Cook for the Cure! The Pineapple Pomegranate Spritzer you dreamed up is what summer drinks should be! Thanks for sharing, Rachael!

I may have to switch the sparkling water out for champagne. Sounds like heaven :)

This sounds really yummy right now! Bummer is, I can’t seem to find pomegranate juice at our local Publix. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong aisle – it wouldn’t be the first time! :)

You know I keep a bottle of pom juice in my fridge! I’m making this pronto ; ) xoxo

Lovely – and thanks for supporting SGKomen. I did 3 of those 3-day 60 mile walks, incredibly. My favorite cause.
