What’s the best way to get into the holiday spirit?
1. Send the kids to Grandma’s
2. Make a cocktail
3. Drink while decorating!

With so much to do this time of year, tasks can get stressful. Your holiday checklist should always include mixing up some fun and potent Christmas cocktails. Our pick this year is Pomegranate Punch.  Shake it up for two or a large batch for guests. Pairs well with veggie or fancy charcuterie platters.

Pomegranate Punch:
4 ounces vodka
4 ounces POM Wonderful Juice
1 ounce triple sec
Soda water
Spearmint leaves
Fresh pomegranate arils (interior seed pods)
 
Directions:
In a cocktail shaker, combine ice, vodka, POM juice and triple sec
Shake and split between two highball glasses filled with ice
Stir in a dash of soda water and a teaspoon of pomegranate arils
Garnish with spearmint leaves for a wintry fresh taste
Tastes best after shopping and with no children!

The ruby red fruit and juice of pomegranates is not only a delicious seasonal treat – it’s full of healthy antioxidants like Vitamin C. Not that we’re necessarily watching the scale this time of year but Christmas cocktails can have fresh, healthy ingredients like cranberries and oranges and taste great too. Don’t forget the liquor!
