Hi everyone and happy Friday!
I’ve given my husband a job on this blog (hey, it’s a family project) and that is to provide a drink recipe every Friday. I may try to pair it with a fun food, but we will see. So starting next week the drinks that you see on Fridays will be his – FUN!
Yesterday was the girls’ last day of school and as you can imagine they came home with bags filled with art projects, writing samples and report cards. I’m trying to figure out what to do with everything, but I think I have a great idea! I’m going to take pictures of some of the pieces that I would consider otherwise keeping. That way, I will be able to save the memories of their work, but I won’t have this huge stash of papers. I just never know what to do with the volume, but this way I won’t feel so bad about throwing so much of it out. I can organize them into folders or even print them out. Isn’t that a good idea?
This sample is my 1st grader’s….classic…seriously. The really funny thing is it’s pretty much how the season went – she captured it beautifully!
So, after such a crazy week, come Friday we are usually ready for a cocktail or two. This one is from last Friday. I had some limes that I wanted to use so I got out my little juicer and used my muscles and got some fresh lime juice…it was hard work, but there is really nothing like fresh juice.
We really enjoyed these. I think its important with your drinks to use really good, fresh ingredients because every flavor gets concentrated into the final product. The pomegranate juice adds lots of antioxidants so I think that this drink is actually healthy – he he. Nonetheless, enjoy and have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July weekend!
From POM Wonderful
1 1/2 c pomegranate juice
1 1/2 c tequila – we used Cabo Wabo Silver
1 c triple sec
2/3 c fresh lime juice – definitely try to do fresh if you can
In a pitcher, combine and stir 1 1/2 cups of pomegranate juice, the tequila, triple sec and lime juice. In smaller amounts, shake the mixture in a large ice-filled shaker, then strain into each of your glasses.
You can garnish each glass with a little kosher salt. Just dip them in some water or reserved POM juice and then some kosher salt. Can also garnish the glass with some lime wedges. Enjoy!
