It's gray and cold outside, but at least it stopped raining.
Remember how I told you about receiving 8 mini POM bottles from Kristen, the P♥M blogger? Well, not only did I use the juice to flavor water and to add as a glaze to brownies, I also made a Virgin POM Mojito with it last week.
Why virgin? Because despite being Russian, I don't really drink much (you know, the stereotypes and all?). Plus, I did not have any alcohol at home other than white wine.
It's best to use a tall glass for this Virgin POM Mojito so that the mint settles on the bottom and you can enjoy the bubbly combination of Perrier and the sweet/tart flavor of POM.
All of my tall glasses, however, are green, blue and purple, so I decided to use a wine glass instead to take photographs.
Ingredients for 1 drink
1 lemon wedge
2 tablespoons mint
1/2 cup POM
1/2 cup Perrier
1. "Paint" the rim of your glass with a lemon wedge. Dip it in sugar.
2. Put the mint on the bottom of the glass and using the handle of a wood spoon, bruise the leaves to release the flavor.
3. Top the mint leaves with POM juice and Perrier. Drink immediately.
