Ear Infections and Pomegranate Martini Recipe

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!

Oh dear, poor Tommy!

My kids look fine today but then again, they looked fine yesterday too. Kendra still with the cute raspy voice and Connor running around the place.

Let's hope ALL the kids all over the blog world are good for tomorrow.
Hmm, guess you can't give the martini to the little ones to help with the pain.
Happy Holidays!

That drink sounds yummy...if only I had pom juice on hand.

I hope Tommy is better today, and that Liam didn't come down with the same!
