Celebrating the start of the summer with Pom Wonderful Cocktails !

Earlier in the week, a couple of bottles of Pom Wonderful arrived at The Madhouse, which has been the source of some unexpected hilarity. First, the shape of the bottle totally wowed everyone. Sophie thought it looked like a totem pole, Juliette said it reminded her of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Pierre raised a giggle by saying it looked like a load of balls. Ahem ! Then our bilingual upbringing caused a bit of confusion. Juliette took a sip, pulled a funny face and said it didn't taste at all like apple ! After explaining that it was pom for pomegranate and not pomme, we were all ready to get busy with the fab cocktail kit that we had received along with the vouchers for the bottles of Pom Wonderful !

Just look at this little lot : glasses, a shaker and stirrers, even a funky heart-shaped ice cube tray. Not to mention the all important recipe ideas. I thought I'd share a few here so that you can try them too.

Well, I tried the Pink Lady which was very nice indeed - although I must admit I wimped out and didn't use the egg white because I didn't fancy having that floating about in my glass !
