Vanessa Rocchio’s Cocktail of the Week

image credit: 1, 2

Vanessa Rocchio is a hot Texas Red Head who has worked for Southern Living Magazine for 23 years. She wears many hats (not just a cowgirl hat), she styles food, develops recipes, and writes a column for Southern Living called Quick Fix Suppers. Besides all of those amazing talents, she is also one of my favorite dinner dates and drinking partners and has a hellava sense of humor (which includes pranking me!) Her weekly column has also been turned into a cookbook Quick Fix Supper, which will have a ton of her tips for making dinner quick and yummy. Look for her on QVC this Sunday, April 22nd between 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., where she’ll be promoting books for Southern Living (and hopefully sharing secrets and telling stores like only she can).

When she’s not busy being a mom to her son (who cooks with her…adorbs!), teaching cooking classes, or working with the Cub Scouts…she likes to kick back with a margarita. She is a Texas girl, after all.

Pretty in Pink Margarita

2 Tbsp. good tequila
2 tsp. grenadine
3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 to 2 tsp. good honey (if you want it sweeter…I like it tart)

Shake in ice…and serve COLD.¬†Garnish with lime slice and cherry. Make it in measurements…or a dab of this and a dab of that. Drink and have fun.
