It’s time to switch up your drinking regimen! Its so easy to get caught ordering a beer (calories ew) or your favorite vodka cran without even thinking about it. Luckily, I have a bartender friend who influenced me to try something different. She developed this drink from scratch and it actually got put on the menu which is a big deal when you work for the infamous quartet of high grossing restaurants in Tahoe including Caliente, Garwoods, Bar of America, and Riva Grill.
So, start with a shot of your favorite Vodka. Personally I like Kettle One.
Next, add a handful of mint and muddle it in the bottom of your glass. You can use a wooden spoon or anything with a blunt end to do this if you don’t have a muddler.
Next, 1 ounce pomegranite juice. You can substitute this with any other fruit juice of your choice if you want.
Add iced tea, sweetened or unsweetened.
Shake! Garnish with lemon, and enjoy! Mmmm
