Chippy white chalkboard love and a favorite cocktail


I wanted to share this recipe with you before Christmas, but did not have the chance...it is my favorite winter go-to cocktail :)

Pomegranate Martinis

Beware, they do pack a bit of a punch, so a little goes a long way :))

Oh, and the new chalkboard door is one of my favorite Christmas presents.  Isn't it fab?!!  I'm still not over my chalkboard obsession...and to have one so big, in a chippy white door with rusted tin on the bottom...well, let's just say that I do LOVE it!!

Pomegranate Martinis

Make ahead of time:  heat 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan over medium heat to make a simple syrup.  Simmer for 5 minutes until sugar dissolves.  Chill about 3 hours.

Combine 1 cup of the simple syrup, 2 cups vodka, 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice, and 1/4 cup pomegranate juice.

Shake in cocktail shaker over ice and strain into glasses.

Garnish with pomegranate seeds {optional}


Hope you have a great day!
