This Pomegranate-Orange Fizz Cocktail combines the classic flavors of pomegranate and orange with the celebratory feel of champagne. Add in some triple sec for an extra citrus blast and you have a cocktail that’s worthy of a celebration!
Cheers – it’s Monday! And not just any Monday, but the Monday before Christmas. Woo hoo! Now, that’s not necessarily reason for celebration in and of itself….but when you combine it with the fact that I’m all finished with my Christmas shopping AND the fact that Jorden is off for two weeks starting today, I’d say a celebratory drink is in order. Don’t you think?
We’ve already gone out to breakfast at my FAVORITE place ever, and now he is out running errands (some for himself, some for me)…..and that’s all after he let me sleep in this morning. Yep – I’d say it’s a pretty good start to Christmas break.
Of course….having him home won’t be without its share of annoying moments and hardships. Like the fact that he’s on a cleaning and organizing rampage (and trying to pull me into it) or the fact that he’s much more likely to let the kids stay up way past their bedtime (so we pay for it the next day) or the fact that my normal daily routine is completely turned upside down (blogging? what’s that?)!
But, annoying as it may be, I’ll take him being home. Especially if it means eating out and having my errands run for me….! And if there’s the promise of a Pomegranate-Orange Fizz in my future, I might even be willing to do some cleaning. Or organizing. (Definitely not both.) But this drink! It’s sweet but not too sweet, bubbly, and definitely celebratory. Perfect for Christmas or New Year’s or a random Monday night…..your call 🙂
