hope this recipe does not reach you too late to stop off to the package
store before your Thanksgiving guests arrive. Trust me - it is worth the
Though I have only worked on this concoction a few times - it was easy to
perfect. Good ingredients lend themselves to many uses, and this recipe will
not disappoint. It is flexible and can be used in an assortment of ways to
stimulate the palates of your holiday (Thanksgiving, Hanukkah or Christmas)
guests. Prepare it by the ounce (or by the cup) and relax.
Sparker (Master Recipe)
1.5 oz/cup premium vodka
1 oz /cup Pomegranate Juice (such as
1 oz/cup orange liquor (such as Cointreau)
Pama Pomegranate Liquor
Mix the potion together in a pitcher. Now you have several options to
produce your cocktails.
1. (MY PERSONAL FAVORITE) Fill highball glass with ice.
Fill glass half-full with Pomegranate mixture. Top with sparkling water -
or even better - lemon-flavored sparkling water.
Drink this mixture on the rocks (for serious-drinkers only).
3. Chill the pomegranate mixture. Pour into champagne
flutes - about one-third full - and top with premium champagne.
forget to garnish with a few pomegranate seeds... or lemon slices... or
orange peel. (See, I told you it was a flexible recipe.)
Seriously - with all the anti-oxidant properties of pomegranate seeds, this
cocktail is practically healthy.
DT and I wish you all a most joyous and love-filled Thanksgiving Holiday.

Men of Oregon finished second in the NCAA Cross-Country Championships in
Indiana. Congratulations to the
Men of Oklahoma State. The Cowboys finished in first place - without the
help of their #1 runner. That is the true spirit of the sport, people!
Congratulations to all the racers on a great season!!!
Until my next update, I remain, your Pomegranate correspondent.
"It's a semi-true story, believe it or not.
I've made up a few things and there's some I forgot.
But the life and the telling are both real to me,
And they all run together and turn out to be a semi-true story."
