I realize it’s 6:00 am when this post goes live, but I assure you, this was a last-night pity party, right after I’m pretty sure I broke my little toe running into a piece of furniture, after a stressful couple of days. Even my best blog-friends can attest, I’ve been pretty absent this week (sorry, ladies!) But I’ll spare you any more complaining – and skip right to the good stuff. ;)
- 1 – 1/4 oz. vodka
- 1 – 1/4 oz. pomegranate juice
- 1 oz. simple syrup
- 1/2 oz. triple sec (or Cointreau, if you have some, it’s just not worth buying a whole bottle for 1/2 oz.)
- splash of lime juice
Chill your glass by filling it with ice water while you mix your drink. That’s mine chilling in the lower left corner.
Add a few ice cubes to your shaker tin. Measure your ingredients into your tin and shake it up.
Dump the ice water from your glass, and rim it with sugar, if you like. To do that, just run a damp paper towel (or a lime wedge, if you have one – I did not) around the rim of your glass, spoon a small mound of sugar onto a plate, and drag the dampened rim through the sugar. It will stick. Like sweet magic. :P
Now, just pour and enjoy!
Sorry about the crabbiness today, I know this post is lacking my usual wit and charm… feel free to go browse something out of the archives if you’re missing it today. ;) See you tonight for Happy Hour Friday!
I link up to these great parties!
