Peter Pan's NEVERLAND COOLER Cocktail

http:themartinidiva.com
I love J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan.  Along with reading the book I've seen every iteration of this childhood classic on television or stage from the version of my childhood starring Mary Martin, to Sandy Duncan, to Cathy Rigby and right up to Allison Williams on NBC's latest live telecast.  From Robin Williams in Hook right up to Johnny Depp as Barie in Neverland, I've kept Tinkerbell alive by viewing and clapping every time.
 
I even had a mated pair of cockatiels named Tinkerbell and Peter Pan, that's how obsessed I am with the story.  Now I've taken my obsession one step further and introduced it to my other obsession, Happy Hour!

Enjoy and may Neverland always be a part of your heart too.
 
The
NEVERLAND COOLER

INGREDIENTS:
1 Oz. Pomegranate Vodka
2 Oz. Concord Grape Juice
1/2 Oz. Homemade Grenadine*
1 Tablespoon Rose Water
Lemon Lime Soda
Hibiscus Flower
Lemon Twist
 
DIRECTIONS:
Add the vodka, grape juice and rose water to a tall glass filled with ice, top off with the lemon lime soda and stir. Pour the grenadine over the top and allow it to settle down through the drink. Garnish with a lemon twist tied in a knot tucked inside your hibiscus flower. Pop in a straw and serve.
 
I happened to have a few little purple candies so I tossed those in just for a little more fantasy.  They melted a bit as I drank and added a touch more sweetness and grape flavor towards the end of the cocktail.
 
 
I have a place where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
It's not on any chart,
You must find it with your heart.
Never Never Land.

It might be miles beyond the moon,
Or right there where you stand.
Just keep an open mind,
And then suddenly you'll find
Never Never Land.
You'll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.
For once you have found your way there,
You can never, never grow old.

And that's my home where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land.

You'll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.
For once you have found your way there,
You can never, never grow old.

And that's my home where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land
