The last few weeks have been a bit stressful… which means I need one of two things – a one way ticket to Tahiti or a cocktail.
Well, since the one way ticket to Tahiti isn’t gonna happen.. a cocktail it is!
And since I have been very disciplined this week, I can splurge a little.
My cocktail of choice this week? A pretty little cocktail that’s not too sweet. Pomegranate liqueur, vodka and pink grapefruit juice makes a perfect bridge between the heavier drinks of winter and the light and frothy concoctions of summer and that has a cute name to boot… the Blushing Lady.
And of course one must have a little nosh to go with a cocktail….
Ah, Salmon Rillettes would be lovely….
Or even this Mahummara Dip would would be good..
Ah, the possibilities are endless… and I’d best stop because I am making myself hungry!!
So, here is hoping you have a “stress free” weekend!!
- 1 oz Pomegranate Liqueur
- 2 oz. Lemon flavored vodka
- 1 oz. fresh pink Grapefruit juice
- 1 lemon for garnish
- In a large shaker filled with ice add the liqueur, vodka and grapefruit juice. Stir to combine. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lemon strip if desired.
