So even though i've still been busy with the whole house closing headache (which still isn't comepleted), it has somehow not compromised my drinking habits. To celebrate, I want to share an old shot recipe that I've had for a long time, and an excellent little deal you can do at a party.
1½ oz. Pomegranate Vodka
splash of Grenadine
1 oz. Cranberry juice
½ oz. Blue Curaçao
Easy enough, all you really do is shake the first three ingredients over ice, pour into a shot glass, and drizzle the blue Curaçao over the back of a spoon. You can easily just throw everything together in the shaker, but pouring over the back of a spoon not only creates a great layer of flavor, but a neat little visual. Here's a closeup picture of what the finished product should look like. Photo courtesy of my lovely wife, Crystal!
Have fun with this one! Simple and enjoyable!
