What do you when you come from a so-so day, want to try something interesting before your husband has to head back to work and find a pomegranate and few lemons in your fridge?
Pair them with Limoncino and make Pomegranate Limoncino shots ( or martinis if you will). Freshly squeezed pomegranate juice is not as tart as store-bought POM. So even if hate POM, give this a try. The fat juicy pomegranates in your grocery store are begging you. Guaranteed to add color to a boring bland Thursday!
Pomegranate Limoncino shots recipe:
- 2 parts Pomegranate juice (freshly squeezed or use POM)
- 1 part Limoncino
- 1/2 part lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
To make pomegranate juice find a big juicy red fruit. Peel and remove the arils. Crush them by hand in a bowl taking care that the juice doesn’t squirt out. Pass through a sieve to remove the seeds or any fiber.
In a cocktail mixer, add crushed ice. Add pomegranate and lemon juice. Add Limoncino. Shake. Strain.
Garnish with a lemon wedge or a few pomegranate seeds.
