Pomegranate-Rosemary Fizz




My Darling Husband,

Please accept this cocktail as reparation for today's little accident. And by "little accident," I mean: yes, there was one.

But you love your wife, right? Every clumsy, witchy inch of her...true?

Ah, good. Because I broke something. Something you're just a leeeeeeeetle bit attached to.

Something that cannot (gulp) be replaced.

But I totally didn't mean to do it and I'll try to be more careful in the future and...

Sweetie? Have a couple more of these. You'll feel better. I know I will.

Your doting and clumsy wife,
TKW
ps: At least I meet you at the door with
cocktails when I fuck up.

Pomegranate-Rosemary Fizz
based on a recipe in Cooking Light Magazine

1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary

4 tablespoons POM pomegranate juice
1 bottle prosecco
4 lime wedges

In a small saucepan, heat water and sugar to a boil. Remove from heat, add rosemary sprigs and let steep for 30 minutes. Remove rosemary.

In each champagne glass, place 1 tablespoon of the rosemary sugar syrup, 1 tablespoon of the POM, and squeeze lime over. Fill to rim with prosecco. Stir. Slug down.

  1. Absolutely hilarious. You are one good wife.

    (PS - Everything breaks. It's just a matter of when.)

  2. Aww...how could he be upset after that?

  3. So are you drinking both of these before he gets home? ;) It's such a rotten feeling to break something that the other person is attached to by accident...he'll understand. And I second Aidan's comment too!

  4. I don't know what you broke, but this is incredibly sweet. He will not be able to resist.

  5. Those look fanTAStic. You can come over and break stuff at my house anytime as long as when I come home, you give me one (or two) of these.

    BTW, Can you get POM at the regular grocery store?

  6. Ha! I laughed at this post - liquor usually cures most things! :D

    Happy Friday!

  7. TKW, there are a few things over here I wouldn't mind if you broke on purpose. I may have to engage your services (just as I am contracting GEW's Boy to do pest control for us if he's ever in our area).

  8. Well, all I can say is that your husband is one lucky man. Like Phoo-D asked, how many did you drink before he got home? Great cocktail. Yep. I think I'll give this one a whirl, since I have a case of POM needing to turn into a good recipe! Oh, thanks for the laugh. I'm high on vicodin from having a fractured tooth extracted...maybe I should have this tonight, after all!

  9. It's okay, I broke my husband's headphones before.

    That drink looks good!

  10. Oh awesome readers, you know me too well. I love you. TKW had put down 2 of those suckers before he arrived :)

  11. And GEW: We have POM at our Kroeger...it's oddly placed with the fruit/salads?

    ReplyDelete
  12. TKW: that's where the POM is at the stores I've been to as well--probably because it's 100% juice and needs refrigeration.

    These look utterly delightful...and I wish my husband would make these for me when he inevitably breaks a wine glass or two.

  13. @ Feast: If you had a cracked tooth, and then an extraction, you deserve a cocktail! I cracked a molar on a CornNut in my youth and...owww.

  14. You can meet me at the door with one of those any time. (Not propositioning you, of course, just totally up for the cocktails and giggles!)

  15. Inky, drive on by, honey! xoxo

  16. You kick some serious ass! I mean really, how cute are you? This looks delicious. But I am, of course, dying to know what you broke.

    ReplyDelete
  17. These look delicious. I am trying to figure out some way to go buy the items to make them tonight!

  18. Sarah: what I broke is so good you wouldn't even believe it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. What the hell did you break? Can't wait to find out. I've been envisioning everything from an iPod to a flat screen TV. But you said it cannot be replaced so I'm thinking something from his past that he teasures.

    Smart of you to have a couple of your POM drinks before (great recipe by the way- kind of a POM bellini) hubby walked in the door. Hmmm. Will you ever tell?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I *might* tell...I accept bribes :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. mmmmm...want one right now. Just because.

    I hope he forgave you after slugging it down.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I dont know waht you broke but this look delightful! and nice!! good idea!! I broke a lot! gloria

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really like this idea. Nothing like a delightful drink to bring about forgiveness ;).

    ReplyDelete
  24. Made them last night and they were delicious. Though I'll go ahead and admit that I'm not sure I could really taste the rosemary.

  26. J. Harker--really? Ours were actually a little bit over-Rosemary-ish...does it depend on the batch,I wonder? I've had some castrated jalapeno's lately, so I know it can happen...

    And okay, since only a few of you read the comments anyways, and jc put it so forcefully...

    I broke his dick.

    I know. Awful, right?

    We had tipsy vigorous sex and the next morning he called me and said, "Bitch, I think you broke it..." so I had to do something nice for the poor soul. Right?

    ps: I think it's not really broken, just sprained. But he wants nothing to do with me for at least two weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  27. OMFG! I am cracking up right now.

    Wrap his dick for 24 hours and tell him to pop some codeine or some shit and quit his whining.

    ReplyDelete
  28. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

  29. That little confession is totally not what I was expecting on a Monday morning. Thanks for keeping things unpredictable.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Bwahaha! That's in-fucking-credible.

    But go you! I've never sprained my cock, but I suppose the sex must have been damned good to have done so.

    So, brava. I'm sorry you broke your man, but it sounds like you had fun doing it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. You go, girl! (and I'm talking about the wild vigorous sex, not the drinks!)
    You always make me laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  32. OK, is one of those ingredients alcohol? I'm an idiot...of course it is!!

    What did ou break????

    ReplyDelete
  33. You really know how to tempt a girl, don't ya? Only 21 weeks to go for such enjoyment.
