Pomegranate Mojito

Hi Everyone and Happy Friday!

Welcome to my holiday cocktail hour!!  Normally I don’t drink too much alcohol except at holiday time or at parties, otherwise I can do without it, but one thing I can’t turn down is a good mojito.  Besides all the foo foo drinks, mojitos are my favorite!!

My Holiday Pomegranate Mojito is made with Pom Light Pomegranate Juice, Bacardi Rum, lime juice and Champagne.  It tastes amazing!  I am so loving the champagne, it gives it a nice light fizz.  The drink in general is light, fresh, slightly sweet, with a slight pucker from the lime and a sweet bubbly feeling in the belly from the Champagne.   Honestly, I am horrible at describing foods or drinks, though I do try my best.

To add a little festivity to the drink I filled it with Pomegranate Arils and a pretty pink straw.  This drink is pretty light compared to most cocktails.  Actually out of all the mixed cocktails out there, mojitos tend to have the least amount of calories.  As a rule of thumb, when you do go out for a drink, be sure to order a drink with clear alcohol.  Clear alcohol tends to have the least amount of calories.  Try to stay away from drinks like margaritas, daiquiri’s and pina coladas.  Those one’s have the most calories.  Figures, because next to the mojito, they are my favorite!

To keep a party skinny, here are some guidelines I try to follow:

Oh one last thing!   My Holiday Mojito is a drink for people over the age of 21.  When you are away from your home and at a party, restaurant or bar, and you do chose to drink, please be sure to call a cab or have a designated driver in your group. It’s better to be safe and sorry!!

One last piece of advice, if you do drink too much, an easy cure for a hangover is to drink coconut water!  That is from experience.  I drank to many cosmos one night, and when I got home I drank coconut water and I did not have a hang over and felt perfectly fine the next day!

Have a great Friday everyone!!!

Happy Holidays!!
