Saturdays and Sundays are full of football in my family. The ritual of watching college football and then watching pro football has stayed with me into adulthood. I’m a huge fan of football and can literally watch any game and enjoy it. I do have my favorite teams, but as long as it’s football season, I’ve got a game going when I’m home. When we have friends over for the big games, I like and try to create dishes and drinks that save time and keep me out of the kitchen and in front of the tv. I’m the girl who’d rather order a pizza than cook fancy appetizers to serve during the game, just so that I don’t miss anything. My latest cocktail creation, the Pomegranate Pear Moscow Mule, fits right in to my game day preparations!
Want to jazz up your game day with a new twist on the classic Moscow Mule? Then you need to try out my fall version…the Pomegranate Pear Moscow Mule. And my secret to this drink: a bottle of Smirnoff Ice Moscow Mule. All you need is the fruit and you are golden! Makes game day a breeze!!
1 Smirnoff Ice Moscow Mule
6 heaping spoonfuls of pomegranate arils (seeds)
4 oz pear nectar
pear slice, for garnish
lime slice, for garnish
pomegranate arils, for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, add in the pomegranate arils and muddle them to get the juice out. Add in the pear nectar and some ice. Shake to combine. Fill a copper mug with ice, add in the contents of the cocktail shaker. Squeeze in the lime juice. Top off with Smirnoff Ice Moscow Mule. Stir to combine. Garnish with pomegranate arils, lime slice and pear slice. Enjoy!
Makes 1 Cocktail.
