Pomegranate Basil Martini

Although we are in the midst of the holiday party season, an evening “in” is necessary for the soul. Christmas shopping, holiday decorating, nights on the town and menu planning can take a toll on time with your partner.

Put the cell phones away, light the candles and create a simple evening for two with light appetizers, a selection of cheeses, and a delicious martini or three.

“Fell in love with a beautiful blonde once. Drove me to drink. And I never had the decency to thank her.”
