\”A simple twist on the traditional kir royale-blends tart-sweet pomegranate juice with herbal notes from a rosemary infused syrup\”I love the twists on the \”classics\” you do. Great recipe, and made me smile
Wow, what lovely color. I bet they're nice and refreshing.
with rosemary and pom juice it's surely very refreshing , the picture is so inviting too.
I bookmarked this recipe in the magazine to try over xmas – glad you enjoyed it!
You can be my bartender any day! Just make sure I cook first, oh and clean up the kitchen then sit down for my drinks…
I made these, too! Yours are far more photogenic, however!
This sounds yummy, Velva. Last night I made a pomegranate juice/sugar & water syrup/ lime juice/orange liqueur drink that I found on someone's blog (I think Lori's Lipsmacking Goodness) and it was tasty. Bet this version here would be really tasty, as well 🙂
cheers!it sounds delicious !
And you can re-use the rosemary in a dish as \”pomegranate infused rosemary\”, ha ha. Nice drink. I have some pom juice in the fridge so this might work for us.
