You guys. HOUSE OF CARDS IS BAAACK!!! Kevin and I have been anxiously awaiting it’s return for the past year. It’s a bittersweet reunion, I know we’ll breathlessly burn through season 2 and be left with another long wait for season 3. Oh Netflix and your instant gratification, what have you done to us?
I made myself a Smashed Pomegranate and Grapefruit Cocktail to celebrate the occasion. It was so good, I think I’ll make them a regular in my HOC viewing experience.
Light, fizzy, slightly sweet and fruity…a nice contrast to the heavy viewing material. No spoilers, let me just say…HOLY CRAP, I did not see that coming. Also, how bad A is Robin Wright? SO BAD A.
That concludes my public geek out. Cheers!
1/2 c pomegranate seeds
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon super fine sugar
2 cans pink grapefruit perrier
Place 1 tsp of super fine sugar, 1 heaping tablespoon pomegranate seeds, juice from half a lime in a glass and muddle (smashing pomegranate seeds). Pour in 1 oz vodka, top with ice and pour in half can on pink grapefruit perrier. Pink grapefruit slices would be soooo good as a garnish but I didn’t have any on hand. DANG IT! I topped with extra pomegranate seeds and lime wedge. Yields 4 drinks.
