Some days are WAY more productive for me than others. Today was a productive day. I got lots of new recipes made, I got some cleaning/housework done, and I spent a long time trying to advance my blogging knowledge (which was less successful than I had hoped). Most of what I'm trying to do is regarding blog promotion. I have been shamelessly promoting my blog as much as I can, and I am hoping that just by getting the name out there, more people will become interested. If you feel so inclined to help me with the shameless promotion, then please DO!! I can't say enough about how great the support has been so far. Thank you!!
So as I said earlier, I got a lot of recipes made today. You'll be seeing them in the upcoming posts so just be patient! I thought I'd start with this refreshing drink! I have never had pomegranate juice before, I have never eaten a pomegranate, I had no idea what pomegranates tasted like, but the picture with this recipe just looked so darn good that I needed to try it. Thank god it was delicious, because I made a huge jug of this drink! It is also carbonated so it adds a little needed zing. I made this as a virgin cocktail, but I think it would be a great addition to a martini or cooler in the summer! Just add a little of your favorite hard liquor and you're good to go, or if you prefer to keep it clean just drink it as the recipe calls for! I doubled the original recipe in order to make enough for everyone.
This is definitely a refreshing and fruity delight, and it makes me so excited to think about the summer!
