Got Pom Martini?


Whoa! Where have I been? Geez, time flies when you're planting a garden, pruning roses, and making pomegranate martinis.

A long-long time ago, I received a box of pomegranate juice from the makers of POM Wonderful. They sent me eight bottles of POM juice! Well, knowing my friends and myself, I knew that martinis were in order.

The only problem was that I had to wait until Spring Break and it officially starts tonight! Of course, I had to make a sample martini (or two) to make sure it was up to par. (OH MA GAH!)

Not only does the martini taste exquisite, but the pomegranate juice is loaded with antioxidants.

The makers of POM Wonderful included a pamphlet that listed the health benefits of drinking POM Juice. Some of the advantages include: improved cardiovascular health, prostate health, erectile function, and antioxidant potency. Who knew a little juice could do so much?

The POM Wonderful site has a huge selection of recipes to choose from. They have everything from appetizers to drinks. *Remember to drink responsibly.

They're sending me a box too! Can't wait to get it so I can make cool drinks too- they're usually pretty expensive in the stores, so I don't buy it very often!
