Gina Florio's Va-Gina

​Yesterday we met Gina Florio, the buxom babe who mixes it up in north Phoenix's relaxed gay bar, Kobalt. Today she shares with us a recipe she crafted for Kobalt when it first opened four years ago: the Va-Gina.

"I tell everybody it's pink and delicious, like me," Florio says. "Just trying to convert all my gay friends back to the Va-Gina!"

The ingredients:
1 ½ oz. Cherry Vodka
1 ½ oz. Coconut Rum
1 oz. Pomegranate Schnapps
Orange juice
Pineapple Juice
Squeeze of lemon

How to make it:
Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled shaker. Mix well. Pour into a highball glass. Garnish with lemon. Enjoy the sweet taste of Va-Gina on your lips.
