It’s Pomegranate Season!

I remember when I ate my first pomegranate as a kid….seated in a chair with a TV tray. Yes, it occupied my little hands for hours! Take note moms: it’s fun for kids. And yes, it will make their hands bright pink, but only for a day.


Juicy pomegranate seeds!

Pomegranate’s brilliant tart-sweet seeds are prized for their distinctive flavor and are high in antioxidants. I love the texture and how they pop in your mouth.

They are so great sprinkled on a winter salad of arugula, slices of orange, and fennel or endive, tossed with a champagne vinaigrette. Or finishing a dish of roasted Brussel sprouts and toasted walnuts adding their tart crunch.

Pomegranate Salad

Try them on ice cream or yogurt or even shaken into your favorite cocktail.

And I have a great tip to make de-seeding simple:

    •Cut the pomegranate in half, then holding a half firmly over a large bowl.
    •Hit it with a heavy wooden spoon and watch the seeds come tumbling out.
    •Repeat – then eat.

PS. This is also a great holiday stress reliever. And be sure you put on a bib apron, the pink speckles will be flying! –Kathy

Drink your Veggies!

We have all heard that we should eat our vegetables, but why not drink them too?

Veggie juices are common now in smoothies, adding their healthy vitamins and antioxidants. And there are a ton of veggie juice blends you can buy bottled with everything from kale to carrots to broccoli. But what about other drinks?

I love adding fresh vegetable juices to citrusy drinks like lemon- or limeades, sparkling water, and cocktails too!

Recently I shook up a Honey Carrot Collins to serve at my #SippingSocial presentation at the National Restaurant Association’s BAR show. It incorporated fresh pressed carrot juice mixed with gin, honey, and fresh lemon, finished with a splash of soda. The ingredients are all trending in cocktails right now – it was a huge hit! Visit www.LiquidKitchen.com for the recipe!

Carrot Collins
Honey Carrot Collins – yes please!
The fresh pressed carrot juice makes the color of this cocktail amazing!

Or how about deep red beet juice added to your favorite margarita with a little splash of orange and a dash of hot sauce too. It’s d’lish!

Homemade lemonades are delicious as well with the addition of kale or celery juice and some fresh basil for an herbalicious and veggie twist.

So think outside of the glass with some fun veggie juice drink experimentation this summer. The markets are brimming with inspiration for your next happy hour! –Kathy
