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,
ps: At least I meet you at the door with
cocktails when I fuck up.
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.
