Ginger Pomegranate Paloma is a refreshing cocktail or mocktail to make during the holiday season!

Today is the day!!

Sound the trumpets.

Because tonight is the first LAUNCH PARTY of Modern Comfort Cooking! HORRAY! I am so flipping pumped to finally share my cookbook with all of my hometown folks here in Wichita, Kansas.

Tonights festivities (in case you didn’t catch all the details on Facebook) are taking place at Central Standard Brewing (CSB). You guys know that I would never turn down a cold microbrew so naturally CSB was the perfect sanctuary to host this epic event.

Okay, I figured this special occasion calls for a cocktail. A festive one at that. I figured this Ginger Pomegranate Paloma is the perfect way to celebrate a cookbook launch party and the holidays. Muddle fresh ginger, pomegranate arils, and lime juice inside a cocktail shaker. Add grapefruit juice, pomegranate juice, and tequila. Shake, pour, and sip. Garnish with all the festive fixings and enjoy!

Cheers to everyone I see tonight! Wouldn’t be here without your love and support!
