First off, Happy Friday! This week started off s...l...o...w, and then all of the sudden it was Thursday! That's fantastic! It was an action packed week, I accomplished a LOT this week between "Spring-ish Cleaning" the house, running errands for me, running errands for my mom and baseball and softball games.........wow, just typing that all out makes me tired. Yea........it was a long week. I got to have coffee with a couple Mom-Friends this morning which was super enjoyable. We "try" to do it a couple times a month.....doesn't always work out, but I super enjoy it when we are able to do it.
OH WAIT..........I didn't tell you yet that our oldest is going to.......PROM! Yes, prom. Yes, we are old enough to have a (gasp) Junior in High School. I know I am going to be a mess tomorrow night as I "try" to take pictures of him and his date. I am trying to mentally prepare myself for it.....but I don't think that all of the preparation in the world will make me ready for it.
(Pssstt........don't forget to enter in to win a pair of awesome silicone, unbreakable wine glasses here)
We had a couple sprinkles here today, which brought in some clouds and some cold air. For some reason that made me want to make a cocktail.....hmmm, go figure......it's almost like I look for "any" reason to make a cocktail.
I bought a little bottle of POM at the store because I honestly haven't in quite some time and thought I was long overdue for a POM cocktail. I also realized that I haven't used gin in quite a while on my blog either, which made me decide to change both of those INSTANTLY. Now that I like gin, I was excited to create something new with it.
Here is my recipe for a Pomegranate Gimlet:
- 1 1/2 ounces gin
- 2 ounces pomegranate juice
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
In a shaker, add ice and all three ingredients above. Shake and strain into a martini glass and enjoy!!

Our weekend is filled with baseball and softball games as well as a prom. I hope yours is filled with fun and cocktails!
