Happy New Year!
I know it’s already January 4th, but I wanted wish you “Happy New Year” and tell you about the delicious drink Les served for our New Year’s Eve party. Les and I took over the New Year’s Eve party this year when Rob and Barb moved to Tennessee. Rob and Barb are great hosts, so we didn’t take on New Year’s lightly. Rob always had a fun cocktail poured and ready when we arrived. Les wanted to keep that tradition going, so he created a Pomegranate Martini for our celebration.
The Pomegranate Martini is slightly sweet with a subtle tartness. It was a delicious drink to sip while noshing on appetizers.
We also served wings, sausages, beans, and these ribs. Everyone else brought something to share, so we had plenty of delicious food to eat! And, after dinner we had a blast playing Scattagories.
1 ounce Vodka
½ ounce Cointreau
½ ounce Pomegranate Syrup (We used Tornani)
2 ounces Cranberry Juice Cocktail
¼ lime wedge
Pour ice into a cocktail shaker, and add the first four ingredients. Shake the cocktail shaker. Rim a martini glass with the lime wedge, and pour mixture from the cocktail shaker into the martini glass. Squeeze the lime into the drink, and add the lime wedge into the drink. Enjoy!
