Cocktails and Confessions Episode 2: Pomegranate Vodka Gimlet

pomegranate-vodka-gimlet-cocktail Happy Friday, friends! Let’s talk vodka gimlets and assless chaps.

We shall start with the former, as that seems like the more civilized approach. The gorgeous cocktail that you see on your screen is a simple update on an old classic that should be added to your repertoire ASAP. Traditionally, a gimlet is vodka (or gin, but ew) and Rose’s lime juice shaken with ice and strained into a coupe glass. It’s very Mad Men chic. This version swaps fresh lime juice for Rose’s (to give things extra zip) and incorporates a splash of pomegranate juice and pomegranate arils for tart-sweetness and visual sass. It’s light and festive, yet delightfully strong, and it’s perfect for winter entertaining.

NOW WATCH ME MAKE IT.

Too aggressive? Sorry. It’s Friday, and I’m particularly excited to share the second installment of Cocktails and Confessions with all of you. In this week’s episode, I discuss my affinity for vodka and its consequences before teaching you to make the perfect Pomegranate Vodka Gimlet. There are epic dance moves and mild indecent exposure involved…


p.s. When I told my mom that I made a YouTube video about getting drunk and splitting my pants, she responded, “Which time?” Touché, mother.

p.p.s. If you are digging this series, please subscribe to my YouTube channel. No pressure, but it would be really awesome. Thank you! You’re the best. 

p.p.s. If you’d like to make a share your own tipsy escapades, please feel free to confess in the comments or shoot me an email. I don’t judge, and I LOVE STORIES. Do it.

  • Bethany Chandler

    Love these videos! My stories are nowhere near as eventful, but I love hearing about others!

    • Serena_Wolf

      Thank you so much, Bethany! (p.s. It’s definitely a good thing that your escapades aren’t quite as ridiculous as mine…)

  • Well you really haven’t lived if you don’t have at least on story about alcohol related clothing damage! This reminds me of the time my friends and I took a party bus around DC. Lots of tequila was involved. I texted my ex. The metro door tried to close on me and I ended up with a huge bruise that covered my thigh for weeks. My friend skinned her knees falling on the escalator and then proceeded to get her dress caught in said escalator. The next day, we tried to help our hangovers with some serious shopping. I just kept wondering off…one time they found me getting my eyebrows threaded, another time they found me buying a pretzel. My memories of that weekend are kind of vague, AND I ended up getting back together with my ex, which was a poor life decision. Thanks a lot, tequila!
