Monday Pick-Me-Up... Mango Pomegranate Pucker

Mango Pomegranate Pucker!
I've made the executive decision that Monday Pick-Me-Up's are going to become a regular feature here along with Monday Mood boards because (1) Monday's are no one's friend, (2) now that I have my home-made infused vodkas they are easy to make, and (3) they are yummy and pretty.  This is a cocktail I made over the weekend for while we were hanging out at my parent's place for Father's Day.  Although it looks pink and girly, the lime and pomegranate and lack of added sugar, made it not too sweet and the perfect amount of tartness.

Before I made this cocktail, I had already made infused Mango vodka a while back.  To make the cocktail mix:
  • 1 oz. mango vodka
  • 2.5 oz pomegranate soda
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • pomegranate seeds
Garnish with lime wedge and drink!

The vodka concoctions I made a while back are still infusing.  They all smell delicious, but the strawberry definitely wins because it is so fragrant that it smells the farmer's market stands full of fresh berries.  Hope y'all had a fabulous weekend and great start to the week (and maybe this post can help)!

Happy Monday!

  8. Monday pick me ups are a great idea! That drink looks delicious, except I would have to make it without the vodka. Haha. :)
