pomogranate vodka cocktail for the holidays

tumblr_nglvhi7GJa1rvqm6lo1_1280I love going to parties and ordering drinks which often times frustrates the barkeeper. Not the part about frustrating the barkeeper, more like ordering speciality drinks, when they are set in their ways and prefer easy and quick beverages to keep the line moving. (Although I do wonder why most beekeepers at parties are so bitter).

Anyway, I wrote this one down a week ago, and walked up to the bartender and asked for something similar. It was simple, minus the glitter sugar, that’s where he drew the line when he added his own twist to the drink. It was fine, and I was in too good of a mood to pout over his version.

Here’s the recipe just in case you’d like to try it at home:

Shopping List
