It’s finally warm where I’m at which is making me CRAVE a sweet, fruity cocktail. Your recipe looks like the perfect remedy and I’m even more excited because I’ve never tried Three Olives before. Found you on TasteSpotting and am looking forward to seeing more of your posts. Have a great weekend!

Sweet & sour should never be a cocktail, especially if you have other sweeteners and already have lime juice, but, seriously, never use it.
And I think a “rita” would imply tequila, not a vodka.

I am a HUGE fan of the Loopy Vodka! A friend and I really enjoy mixing it with milk and a little grenadine, it tastes like an homage to my childhood!

Love your site…I’m nowhere near as talented as you when it comes to baking but drinks I can do!
This Loopy Rita sounds great and since I love a good Vojito as well…here’s another play on the traditional Mojito that I tried once and keep going back to…whenever I make this for guests, they absolutely love it (as do I by the way)…I came across it by accident on Rougemaple.com….its called the “Cool ROUGE Maple Mojito” you can get the recipe here: http://rougemaple.com/blogs/news
