Some of Dave's (My Year On The Grill) friends have decided to throw him a surprise going away party. You see, Dave has left the snow of Kansas and moved to the British Virgin Islands! Yep, he did what we all threaten to do - he moved to the islands! So as a send off, we've been asked to share a favorite in honor of a wonderful cook who has been so generous sharing his knowledge and recipes.
My favorite cocktail is Ina Garten's Pomegranate Cosmo. It's made ahead, and by the pitcher! Handing your guests one of these lovely drinks as they walk in the door will cement your friendship and get your party off to a great start. So here's to you, Dave! Cheers! (glasses clinking)
Pomegranate Cosmos by Ina Garten:
(2) Cups good vodka (recommended is Stolichnaya or Finlandia)
(1) Cup orange liqueur (recommended Cointreau)
(1) Cup pomegranate juice (recommended Pom Wonderful)
1/2 Cup freshly squeezed lime juice (3 limes)
lime peel strips to garnish
Combine the vodka, orange liqueur, pomegranate juice, and lime juice in a pitcher and refrigerate until ready to use (I do it early in the day.) Pour the mixture into frozen martini glasses, garnish, and serve immediately.
Thank you to Min from Our Krazy Kitchen for inviting me (us) to share in the fun. And to you, Dave, for following your dreams - you're a great example for the rest of us.
