A Sneak Peek Inside Wifey’s House

I like pomegranate juice. Who knew?

I didn’t. It’s always been one of those things I just assumed I didn’t like, so when the good folks at POM Wonderful offered to send me some I daringly said yes – and hoped that I would like it. And I did. Not just ‘cause I mixed it with tequila, ahem, but I drank it straight, too. And it was delightfully yummy.

Then I went to their website and saw a new study indicates the antioxidants found in Wonderful variety pomegranates can speed muscle recovery and reduce soreness after exercise and I was sold. It taste good and can help me in my quest to get fit and healthy – and it’s the bomb with tequila – yup, sounds like some super-juice to me.

Speaking of tequila, since it was Friday I decided to make a little drink for me and Husband with my new best friend POM Wonderful. I might as well be healthy while I’m indulging in a little weekend cocktail. Here’s how that went …

Husband liked it, too. I was really proud of my bartending skills because I normally stick to beer and wine, but this might be my new splurge-on-a-cheat-day specialty drink.

Here’s the Pomarita recipe I used from their website:

1 oz. freshly squeezed pomegranate juice* or POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
1 oz. tequila
1 oz. Cointreau (I used Triple Sec)
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
1/4 oz. simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water dissolved together in cold water)
Salt and lime for garnish (optional)

It was super easy. Just mix everything together with ice in a shaker and you’re good to go.

Thanks to lovely folks at POM Wonderful for introducing me to 100% pomegranate juice. I had no idea that I was missing out. Are you?

Winks & Smiles,

POM Wonderful sent me a case of 100% pomegranate juice but did not pay for this post or my opinion. My thoughts, likes and drink choices are all my own.

That looks super tasty. You know I am dreading the week because I saw this and was thinking I need one of those stat (it is only 6:50 in the morning).

Looks like you had a fabulous friday!

I should have come over to your house and one of those, cause the drink I had was horrible! Thanks for the recipe Wifey!

I love Pom.

Pomarita? Might just have to try that!

I like POM but it is not cheap. Thanks for the recipe.

I'll just keep coming back to watch you drink yours because I KNOW I'm not going to go out and purchase those ingredients. Yep, call me lazy!

Girl, I love Pomegranate juice. I use the POM flavored liquor, Ruby Red Vodka and a tiny bit of OJ (optional). That's my summer time drank.

Well, since I'm an alcohol virgin I'm not sure if I'll try the concoction but I must say that lately I've been indulging in Grapefruit juice. I'm loving it and using it as my replacement to Coca Cola. It's working for the time being but I'm not sure how long that will last.

oooo that is SO funny! i made pomtinis for hubby and I two Fridays ago. i went a little overboard on the alcohol though and couldn't even finish mine. oh and i added a sugared rim! (I know, I know - not healthy!)

This is so funny to me because I felt the same way about Pomegranate and Acai and turns out I like both of them. I just assumed they would be nasty. Apparently I discriminate against exotic fruit, maybe I should be more open.
