Pomacello Shots

It's been that kind of a week. The kind of week when you feel like cracking open a beer every day and on Monday morning, you're already longing for Friday night. The kind of week when all you can do is throw up your hands, have a drink and remember that the universe has a strange way of making things work out.

At times like these, I like to close my eyes, rock back in my office chair and pretend that I'm by the pool at the Viceroy in Palm Springs, drinking one of their delicious pomegranate mojitos and enjoying the sunshine. Sometimes, I can almost smell the sunscreen, that's how good I get at imagining. So here's to Friday, here's to the weekend, and here's to delicious drinks that can take you back to those perfect moments in time, when the sun is shining, the breeze is gentle and the ice crackles softly in the cool depths of your glass.

1 part limoncello
2 parts pomegranate juice
a dash of lemon juice and lemon for garnish

Pour limoncello into tall shot glasses, to about 1/3 of the height of the glass. Shake the pomegranate juice (I use POM - they sent me a few free bottles and I'm addicted now... those crafty POMmers :) Seriously, though, I really liked it) in a mixer with crushed ice and pour over the limoncello. Squeeze a dash of lemon juice into each glass and garnish with pieces of lemon.
