Have A Sip Of: POM-oh-come-to-Mama-tini


Last month, I received a really great email from POM Wonderful. I am a big fan of POM juice (especially the blueberry pom option). And the email was highly complimentary of my blog. Thank you!

They sent me several samples of their new product POMx Iced Coffee. They didn't ask me to write a review or to concoct something for them either.
We had friends over last week and in my ongoing pursuit to try new and amazing cocktails..I created a recipe they raved about (thank you friends).

I call it the POM-oh-come-to-Mama-tini . If you like caffeine, which many of you do, this might become your cocktail du jour and it would be happy to replace the red bull and vodka combo which by the way, looks like UA sample.

JennyMac's POM-oh-come-to-Mama-tini

Fill your shaker with ice.

Take your martini glass and draw a circle just below the inside rim with chocolate syrup.

Into your shaker pour:

2/3 POMx Iced Coffee (I used vanilla)
1/3 vodka
1/3 Lady Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur

Shake it like a poloroid picture.

Pour. Sip. Enjoy. Repeat.

Make them again next weekend and I will join you. Let's have a cocktail? Indeed.

Now: for my many bloggy friends who have vices, alcohol not being one of them, I wanted to share a great non-alcoholic recipe as well:

Have A Sip Of: Rasberry Limeade with a Twist

Fill a glass with ice
Fill 2/3 of glass with Sprite
add 1 shot of Torani Lime syrup
add 1 shot of Torani Raspberry syrup

Stir. Add fresh lime wedge.
Sip. Enjoy. Repeat.

That pomtini looks awesome. They were supposed to send me some new green tea sample but I got nectarine and kiwi instead. No matter, it went wonderfully with my sweet tea vodka last night :)
