POMtini


I was recently contacted by the POM Blogger and she sent me a case of POM Juice. It is delicious and soooo good for your body. It gave me an idea! We are pretty boring in the liquor department, we don't like beer, are "over" our wine phase, and vodka is about all we ever have. Boring!

Heather, whom I have nicknamed Cocktail Girl, I hope you are proud of me!

My husband arrived home on Saturday from 2 weeks in Asia and I wanted to have a special cocktail for him. I don't know if there is such a thing as a POMtini, but I made this up and it was delish!

4 ounces POM juice
three shots of good quality Vodka (we like Kettle One)
Crushed ice
Squeeze of Mandarin Orange juice

Place all the above in your tini shaker and shake shake shake, pour into 2 martini glasses and garnish with a slice of Mandarin Orange

Makes 2 delicious cocktails. These are sneakers, they taste so good it sneaks up on ya!

I have got to go and buy some of this JUST to try this drink. However, I'll probably make 4 or 5.. They look outrageously tempting. OOOHHH.. I so want one!

I am sure you are so happy to have John home - the kids loved their goodies from China.

I'm a wino, but I'm not averse to the odd vodka martini, this sounds yummy. I got an e-mail from these folks asking me if i wanted a free sample, I ignored it but maybe I should have said yes.

BTW, great to hear that your hubby is home again.
