These days, I'm not quite as tacky because let's face it, I'm just too old for that now. But, in a similar vein, in order to save money on heating bills, I pile on layers of clothes and sip on a nightcap to warm up. Today's cocktail is delicious and seasonal, as it incorporates my two favorite winter fruits: pomegranate and clementine. And, I love the celebratory feel of this cocktail, which is totally appropriate because I am celebrating today. Well, I'm celebrating the fact that I'm about to board a plane to Phoenix to enjoy some time with my friend and revel in nature and sunshine. I'm really craving some Vitamin D right now.
1 oz. pomegranate juice (I just seeded a pomegranate and muddled the juice out)
1 oz. clementine juice
1 teaspoon agave nectar
1.5 oz. white rum
3 oz. fizzy water or sparkling cider
pomegranate seeds and clementine slice for garnish
