Tommy was having a hard time falling asleep last night. I felt so bad for him. He was tossing and turning and moaning, not crying, just moaning and I could see he was tired. I gave him some ibuprofen and he fell asleep. Took him to the doctor's this morning. Wanted to get him in before everyone scooted for holidays. Sure enough. Both ears infected. He's now on Zithromax or whatever generic equivalent there is, and the mending will now begin. Poor guy.
However, to celebrate the festivities of the season, I've been in the mood for a beverage that is red and not too sweet. I came up with this Cosmo-Style Pomegranate Martini that I think is quite tasty. Enjoy!
2 shots of plain vodka (don't use flavors, it makes it taste wierd)
1 shot of triple-sec or other orange flavored liquor
2 shots of pomegranate juice (see it's healthy! good for you!)
dash of lemon juice
Mix all ingredients in a martini shaker with ice and serve in a martini glass. Yum!
