Day 243, Cocktail 240

Christmas Eve is always a special night for us.  This year, while the girls were at their church service I worked up a Polish style pork roast with homemade applesauce and my special homemade potato pancakes.  A cucumber salad with sour cream dressing and a nice bottle of reisling completed the meal.

Of course, I rarely cook with an empty hand, and last night was no different.  Colleen Graham’s cocktail blog provided the inspiration for my Christmas Eve cocktail.  It took a couple of iterations to get it right, but Gwen was more than happy to assist me!

  Peach Pom

  • 1-1/2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz peach liqueur
  • 3/4 oz orange juice
  • 1/8 oz lemon juice
  • 1 oz pomegranate juice

Shake in a shaker with ice to chill and mix.  Strain into a 6 oz chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with a couple of fresh cranberries.

A nice, semi sweet cocktail.  The peach flavor is at the front with the pomegranate and orange supporting it.  The lemon juice actually helps cut the sweetness, so don’t skip over it for this drink!  This was a very nice starter before our dinner, and would also work well with a nice chocolate dessert!

Cheers!
