Thirsty Thursday: Pom-Cran Passion

Hello? Is anyone there? If you’re still out there, I’m back. After a hectic holiday season in retail, and a few weeks recovering from the madness of Christmas Eve at the mall, I am finally beginning to blog again. From Black Friday to New Year’s Eve, I haven’t been reading blogs and I haven’t been writing blogs; this whole site has been the last thing on my mind. Hopefully, now that the store will be as empty as the Sahara until men swarm in right before February 14th, I’ll get back into blogging regularly. It’s my New Year’s Resolution, which means that I should be able to keep up with it for a solid month before giving up entirely.

One thing for which I did make time this winter: cocktails. After a long day at work, I was only capable of creating new concoctions and watching CW TV shows. Nothing goes better with the guilty pleasure of streaming Gossip Girl or Jane the Virgin like alcohol, especially sweet, fruity drinks. So, that’s how I stumbled upon this mixture. If you watched shows like Passions or still tune in to afternoon soaps, I feel like that’s the most appropriate setting for this type of beverage. It’d probably also go well with any viewings of The Bachelor. If you do try it, I’d love to hear what you think! Happy drinking.

    Welcome back, the blogging world is alway happy for a return visit. 🙂 I’m not into sweet cocktails, I like them all very dry but this sounds like it has a nice blend of flavors.
