Hope that you have the most wonderful, wonderful Christmas weekend EVER.
We are having a mellow day of napping and Christmas movies after I force myself to go to the gym. Since I ate about my body weight in sweets this week it feels like I have to do it before I just do a repeat all over again this weekend.
But we will have an afternoon aperitif before we head to dinner and I think this is going to be it! This Sparkling Clementine Thyme Sparkler is tasty, light and refreshing and incredibly festive. I love the tart sparkling orange juice with the floral herbaceous flavor of the lemon thyme- enjoy!
- 4 ounces chilled vodka
- 12 ounces sparkling clementine juice (I used Izze)
- 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
- 2 clementine or orange slices
- two sprigs lemon thyme
- Fill two glasses with ice, an orange slice and pomegranate seeds. Add the vodka to the glass and top with 6 ounces of the sparkling clementine juice. Garnish with the lemon thyme.
