Just because I love you guys....

Recommended Posts

i will share this newly invented and fabulously delicious cocktail recipe.

last night i had a girls night out with some friends. the hostess served a nice pre-dinner cocktail, but i just knew it could be better.

so, i came home, thought about it, tweaked it - tried it out on dh and VOILA' - i have discovered heaven.

keep in mind that the pomegranate juice and mint are both antioxidants...so not only is this delicious - it's MEDICINAL!

8-10 fresh mint leaves muddled

1 shot quality vodka (or more if you want)

1 shot POM pomegranate juice

1 packet splenda or 2 tsp sugar

juice of 1/2 lime

shaken with ice

poured into martini glass

let me know if you like it!!! i bet you will....

;););)

Sounds a lot like a cosmopolitan with a bit of mint! I think they used to use cranberry, but Pom would be great. It does sound like heaven! :)

I have the limes, I have the fresh mint leaves, I'm sure to have vodka and cointreau

so now all I have to get is some cranberry juice, because I loved the Cosmoplitans in the US last year.

does sound yummy! I have mint--several kinds -- and beer. Don't think that'll work. Did have a couple of beers as it's Sat. as I was looking at the quilt I just finished.

OK I'm running into town today anyway, so I will pick up the goodies to make these. I have some GG in the cupboard --- it's waiting to be used. :)

BTW I'm doubling this recipe and using the WHOLE lime! :P (ha! I love you meggy!!)

I'm owning up..... I cheated. When I went to the bottle shop(to buy the vodka) they had a 2 Litre cask of ready made Cosmopolitan so I bought that to try....

It is in the fridge chilling. I may get to have a drink tomorrow night, I'll be working tonight.
