Pomegranate Rosemary Cocktail

Posting a cocktail recipe might seem odd since I'm in my second month out of twelve being sober. But this drink is just too pretty. 

My go-to cocktail is, was, a vodka and soda with extra lime. So refreshing and not sweet like the liquified candy you can order from any popular after-work bar.

This drink follows the same cadence, leaving the sweetness to the side, but giving you options to sip your vodka with when the occasion doesn't call for slinging back the shots straight up. The rosemary, recommended, and pomegranate seeds, optional, frankly just make you feel a little fancier. I'd say that falls under #selfcare.

Hot Toddy Cocktail

Usually, I'm more of a wine drinker. But when I want an alternative during these chilly days, or have a tickle in my throat, it's hot toddy time. The only downfall to this hug-in-a-mug is the missing crackle of a fire that should really magically appear whenever this cocktail is made. 

Just like with any drink, this concoction depends on how stiff you want it to be and how much lemon and sweetness your taste buds want. There is a dollop of honey, but when I've run out of the ingredient, the drink is still grand to those of us that like the bitter notes.
