Girl Time & Pomegranate Mimosas - Wordful Wednesday

Girl time - we all need it!!!!! Last week, both my best friend Tammy & I were a bit stressed & needed to get together. Honestly, I have been in a major funk for the past 2 weeks & am just starting to slowly get myself out, or at least I hope. 

What helps is a lovely evening with a best friend! I am so fortunate Tammy lives just a couple of miles away. So, she came over in her PJ's which fit right in with my attire, something probably from the day before, with the way life has been lately, & we shared a few appetizers, including the flatbread & shrimp veggie wontons, as well as a new cocktail.




The wonderful people over at POM Wonderful sent me a complementary case of their all natural pomegranate juice. It came a few hours before Tammy was coming & since I forgot to buy the white wine for the sangria I planned to make, the pomegranate juice came in handy.

Say hello to my little friend, the POM Mimosa. All you need is: 

1/2 oz. freshly squeezed pomegranate juice or POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
1 glass of dry champagne
1/2 oz. Cointreau

Pour champagne into a champagne flute. Add pomegranate juice & float the Cointreau on top. If you don't have Cointreau then orange juice may be a nice addition. Go visit POM Wonderful for other great recipes!


Do I need to mention we polished off the entire bottle of champagne???

Tammy also got a little play time in with Nash & has since got a little doggie herself!


Here's to friends. Happy Valentine's Day to all of you. The time I spend with you each day is Girl Time too & I need it!

I need that. Now. Just add it to the list of things I want you to make for me.

It's a very long list.

Life with Kaishon said...

I'm sorry you have been feeling a little blue. Me too! Pajama dates are the BEST!

Angela said...

Oh yum! You have combined two of my favorites! Pomegranate and champagne! I have to ask - how did you get that case of POM juice? I love that stuff but it's so expensive! I have started buying the frozen Welch's 100% pomegranate and it is pretty good...a little cheaper, anyway.

Looks like a wonderful "girls' night in" and I agree - I am so thankful for my girlfriends and for YOU my friend! I am sending you a big hug to get out of your funk!

And Pixie sends puppy kisses to Nash!)

HeatherY said...

I want to come over for mimosas and shrimp wontons!!! Looks like so much fun!

Anonymous said...

I loved this idea but my friends and family aren’t big drinkers so I substituted the champagne with Kristian Reg├íle Pomegranate-Apple Sparkler. It worked out great! Refreshing and delicious! Great for kids too!.

Pomengranate said...

Yummy post!Thank you for sharing this wonderful information about pomegranate with us. With all this buzz about superfriuts flying around I feel it is very important for us to know in detail what we consume. Looking forward to see more posts like this from you.
