A really cool twist to the Kir Royale is a Pom Royale. I bought some Pomegranate Grenadine at the Sherman Oaks Farmers Market a couple of weeks ago. I love champagne drinks, kir royale being my favorite. I am not sure of all the health benefits of pomegranates but I’m sure they have some so when you add that to using organic champagne you can feel good about drinking your bubbly!
Pour around 1/4 oz of grenadine into a champagne flute and fill with your favorite champagne. Drink and enjoy.
I love a good Bloody Mary. I can’t believe I went so many years without drinking them! Recently I was enjoying happy hour at one of my local watering holes and the bartender was making drinks with cucumber vodka. He said “I bet this would be good in a Bloody Mary ” and he was right, amazing! So have to give credit to Stone for coming up with this one. Why didn’t I think of this first?
Here is GQ’s eco/organic version. You can make up the mix ahead of time add spices to your preference. Reuse an empty bottle or mason jar to store it in.
