Holiday Cocktail: Pomegranate Gin Sling

With the holidays quickly apporaching and the Christmas parties about to begin, I thought it would be good to share a few holiday cocktails.

Pomegranate Gin Sling
A classic gin sling is dressed for festive parties when made with seasonal pomegranate juice and decorated with crimson pomegranate fruit. Both simple syrup and agave syrup are widely available at liquor stores. To make your own simple syrup, boil 2 parts sugar to 1 part water, stirring just until sugar dissolves; reduce until thickened. Cool before using. Recipe courtesy of Cooking Light.

  • 1/4 cup gin

  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice, chilled

  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup or simple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

  •  8 pomegranate seeds

  • 2 lime slices

  • Preparation:
    1. Combine first 4 ingredients; divide evenly between 2 chilled glasses; divide seeds between glasses. Garnish with lime slices.

    Don't Forget About Your Girls!

    We've all seen enough episodes of Bridezilla (and maybe even know a few...) to know that sometimes a bride can go too far & take advantage of her bridal party.  Here's a few things to remember when considering those few girls you've asked to be a part of your special day:

    •  These are your friends, not your little worker bees...too many demands can strain a friendship.
    • Be mindful of the costs of things.  Remember that they are taking care of everything themselves such as their dress, shoes, hair, the bridal showers, bachelorette party & travel.
    • If cost is an issue, give flexibility & creativity on the attire.  Pick the color of the dresses but let them pick their own style.  They really appreciate this because then they can possibly wear the dress again. 
    • Some single friends may have a harder emotional time so don't flaunt it so much! 
    • Always get your bridesmaids a small gift to show them you appreciate the time and money they've spent.  Ultimately your wedding is about sharing love.  Having bridesmaids is a way to enjoy the experience with your best girlfriends.
