A Pink Cocktail for Valentine's Day

Hopefully, you're doing the smart thing and ordering delicious takeout from your favorite neighborhood joint for your romantic evening with your other half. Don't go out...always costs too much. And you shouldn't spend the evening in the kitchen. Right? spend enough time in the kitchen to mix up this yummy cocktail. High-octane with a balance of tart and sweet and a luscious pink the color of those little candy hearts.

V-D Cocktail
Makes two cocktails.

2 ounces vodka
1 ounce pomegranate juice
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce club soda

Combine first four ingredients in an ice-filled shaker and shake vigorously. Pour in the club soda and stir. (Don't shake...the carbonation will make things explode.)

Strain into two cocktail glasses and serve. Quote your favorite Shakespearean sonnet...
