Bourbon Whiskey Pomegranate Sparkler

Thought you might like a cocktail.  A sparkler.  Don’t you like that word?  Sparkler.

It’s bubbly and pinkish and Valentiney!  Cute.  But don’t be fooled — it’s also full of bourbon.  It will punch you in the face if you’re not careful.

I don’t mix up cocktails on the regs (hi, wine), so this took some experimenting, but the combination of smokey bourbon, sweet, tart pomegranate and bright lime is a good one.  Give it a try!  Make it for your Valentine!  Punch someone in the face with it!  The possibilities are endless.
