    Aloha Pineapple!
    Aloha can mean hello – Greet the Hawaiian pineapple flavor of this summertime sipper. Aloha can also mean peace -which you will begin to feel as you savor this cocktail and dream of your next beach vacation.

    It think the drinks name should be walking on sunshine, because of its cheery color. It reminds me of the sun and goodtimes!

    Amalfi Sunrise
    I was lucky enough to actually see a beautiful sunrise on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Also, that’s where they grow the biggest, most beautiful lemons in the world! Plus I drank Prosecco there.

    I would name it Piña Kiss.
    Piña is Spanish for pineapples and lemons make your mouth pucker as if ready to kiss.

    Veneto Sunrise
    Veneto for the region in Italy where the glera grapes are grown that are used in making Prosecco and Sunrise for the beautiful yellow/golden color of lemons and pineapples.

    Tuscan Sun
    Tuscan because it reminds me of Italy and prosecco is an Italian wine and lemons are grown there. Sun because of the beautiful golden color of the drink and of pineapples.

    Lemon-Secco
    This is the first time I’ve entered your contest. I think the name is appropriate as it is a play on the name limoncello and the two main ingredients in this drink are lemon juice and prosecco

    Positano Mist.

    When I think of Italian Prosecco it reminds me of the Amalfi coast and its picturesque town of Positano. The town is full of houses with beautiful sea views.

    John Steinbeck, wrote, “It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.”

    The pastel-colored drink, like the Postiano houses, beckon you to return in mind and spirit via refills.

    Summer Sun- because it reminds me of sun through the haze of hot humid August days, and because I like alliteration!

    Fête du Citron

    (Festival of Lemons in France) In France, when life hands you lemons, the French don’t just make lemonade – they throw a party! In late February , the French Riviera town of Menton hosts the Fête du Citron – or the Lemon Festival, a tribute to the city’s number one export – lemons.

    Gilded Lillet. Pun intended – a great tasting drink that is even better with fine ingredients and elegant garnish.

    Pinesecco Limonita

    An infusion of pineapple with a bubbly crisp prosecco, fresh squeezed limon added with a bit of Chartreuse and splash of Lillet makes this drink a refreshing pineapple dream! Cheers!
