Pomegranate Kombucha Smash // Weekend Cocktail No. 19

Warm weather calls for drinking cocktails outside with your friends. This one is fun to make AND fun to drink. You can use any kombucha flavor you like, we used ginger flavored. It was delicious. Also, it worth noting that Christina is pregnant and she is not drinking one of these drinks in the photo (haha). Oh that she wish she were.

yields 1 drink

4 oz ginger kombucha
2 oz bourbon whiskey
1/4 cup fresh pomegranate seeds
4 mint sprigs

1. In the bottom of a highball glass, smash the pom seeds and  mint leaves. 2. Add ice and bourbon and top with the kombucha. Take a spoon and give everything a good turn in the glass. 3. Drink it.

Eating In // Sorbet and Waffle Cookie Sandwiches

Every once in a while I get this wild craving for raspberry sorbet in a waffle cone. This is the grocery store equivalent. Tart sorbet sandwiched between two butter wafer cookies. So so good and, I think, the easiest recipe we've ever posted. Cheers to spring!


  • 1 box of butter wafer cookies ( can be found at TJs) 
  • 1 pint of raspberry sorbet, or whatever kind you like 
1. Spoon the sorbet between two cookies and freeze for probably two hours before serving. Otherwise it will be a huge melty mess.
