MID-WEEK MIXERS …Featuring Food & Drink Recipes by Naomi Blackburn
The Pub and Grub has drink recipes featured every Wednesday on author Bette Lee Crosby’s Words, Wit and Wisdom. This feature allows me to present not only some classic favorites, but some Naomi Blackburn originals too. One of the things that I love most about this guest post is that it allows me to be creative with drink themes. For May, it was, of course, Cinco de Mayo with a nice selection of tequila based drinks. I had tried a drink I had come across in a cookbook that I found to be absolutely disgusting, but it has a nice base of tequila and orange juice. I took off from there and voila….The Tequila Sunset Pomegranate Punch was conceived.
The big thing with this drink is that the pomegranate juice is added AFTER the drink is poured into its glass. It will sink to the bottom but is BEAUTIFUL as it is doing it.
