Cajun French: le camélia (lu kam-ā-lee-a) – camellia
January brings an explosion of color to south Louisiana gardens with the blooming of camellia bushes. We enjoy floating the blooms in bowls of water and setting them around the house to bring the outdoors inside. When fixing what everyone else calls a Poinsettia, we realized the drink reminded us of a camellia and hence our name for this cocktail is forever a Camellia.
One change we make is we use cranberry pomegranate juice.
Mais C’est Bon!
