Let’s face it: everything just sounds ten times cuter with “–ini” attached to the end.

And Pom-tinis are no exception! Below, celebrating my 21st birthday in style:


Recently, Ryan, of the Pom Wonderful Company, emailed me and asked if I’d be interested in receiving a case of Pom Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice.

When I told Chocolate-Covered Mom, she literally jumped up and down.

One of her favorite things to make is a Pom-tini. So these babies are going to be put to good use! Below, her recipe. There are a ton of Pom-tini recipes floating out there, but this one is way easier—with only three ingredients—than many others, while still being just as delicious.

Easy Meanie PomTinis

  • 1oz Pama liqueur
  • 1oz Absolut mandarin vodka
  • 2oz pom pom juice

Combine in a cocktail shaker, filled with ice. Strain and pour into martini glass. Particularly nice with a few raspberries in each glass.

  1. I’m not a big drinker, but I love to try fun martinis, margaritas, and anything with Disaronno!
    That brownie batter oatmeal looks delicious!

    Your mum is too cute – she looks like a kid on Christmas morning with that box of juice!

    I don’t drink because I am allergic to alcohol. Weird, but true: my lips and tongue go numb, my face swells, and other unpleasantries.

    If I am out someplace where people are ordering fancy drinks, i stick with cranberry and orange juice mixed together – it looks a bit fancier than plain juice and it tastes pretty good too. Otherwise, at Christmas, my inlaws make something called Moose Milk with alcohol in it. (Basically, mashed up ice cream, milk, and spices.) They make a vegan non-alcoholic version for me and it’s really yummy.

    This post is cute!

    I don’t drink much, but I like Sambuca, specifically mixed with apple juice, for some reason.
    And I sometimes have wine, but I usually prefer non alcoholic drinks :)

    And whoa… that oatmeal. yum.

  4. Kiersten says:

    I rarely drink. When I do drink though it’s usually wine.

  5. Pomtinis sound good!!! I got my own case a while back and I’m STILL going through them haha but they are good!!!

    I’m not a big drinker in that I drink often but I do enjoy it when I DO drink. I like white wine a lot, not too big of a fan of the red, and mixed fruity drinks.

  6. Bekkah says:

    I’ll have a glass of wine at dinner, but I don’t go out of my way to drink fancy cocktails.

  7. Sarahishealthy says:

    After a hard day, there’s nothing better than relaxing with a glass of wine and a few friends! I’m not a big partier. I’d rather stay in and gossip 😉

  8. Mary says:

    I love pomtinis!!! My version is more complicated, so maybe I’ll have to try yours!

  9. vegangal says:

    i don’t drink at all. but i’m not old enough lol!

  10. Aimee says:

    You and your mom are so cute! And you look so much alike!
    I’m so excited for the pom giveaway. That stuff’s expensive!

  11. Sünne says:

    I’m not drinking any alcohol but like to drink non-alcoholic versions of cocktails like Piña Colada every now and then.

    Love your Power Song of the day as it reminds me of a play my performing arts class in school recently staged. We adapted “Where the wild things are” and used this song in a dancing scene.
    It was such a lot of fun!

  12. Inspired says:

    I love pomagranates, but I don’t think I’ve ever had the juice. I’d love to win some :)

  13. Evan Thomas says:

    So not a drinker here; I’ve hardly had sips. But I do love carrot juice if that accounts for anything

  14. Valerie says:

    Yikes, am I the only one who likes my cocktails here? Reading the other comments, I kind of feel ashamed to admit my love of all things fruity and alcoholic! ESPECIALLY martinis! Can’t get much better than Pomtinis!

  15. ilanalala says:

    Mmmm pomtinis. I love that adorable picture of you and your mom celebrating!
    I had my day as a drunken party girl (okay, fine, like two and a half years of college) but I never really liked how alcohol made me feel. The occasional cocktail (expecially if it is in mojito form), a glass of wine on occasion, but lately I can’t even finish a drink! The sorority girl in me weeps.

  16. *Andrea* says:

    cute pictures! you’re so is your madre :)

    i had a bunch of pomtinis on my spring break trip! while others drank beer…i prefer fun drinks that are fruity (probably cause they mask the alcohol haha). i’m not a big drinker at all…i do enjoy the occasional vodka/seltzer or cranberry at a bar though to ‘fit in’ socially… sometimes a nice corona in the summer too

  17. McKella says:

    I don’t drink, but those little glasses are so cute!

  18. Jessica says:

    Never fear, I’m here to make you feel better, Valerie! I love fruity cocktails too. Mojitos, martinis, Breezers… I’m not an alcoholic by any means, but when I’m out, I have no guilt enjoying myself! :)

  19. I am definitely a beer drinker when i drink….which is less and less as I get older!!

  20. Jenny says:

    I’m not a big drinker, but when I do, I like to have a nice, fruit-flavored beer!

  21. Dan213 says:

    Waaah people, you’re missing out! Beer is the best invention known to man! Drink up!

  22. I’m not much of a drinker, but I do enjoy the occasional girly fruity cocktail, and I LOVE amaretto sours!

  23. I agree with Dan123. I’m a drinker. Yup. I like to party. What can I say? I figure I eat healthy enough throughout the week to justify 3 or 4 glasses of wine (or um, shots) on a Saturday night.

    The pomtinis look delish! Pom contacted me too, but I turned them down. I can’t get past that whole animal testing thing they used to do. They’ve supposedly stopped that, but it stills gives me the creeps.

  24. Anonymous says:

    i love beer. and wine. and cocktails. and alcohol in any form.

  25. I’m a popular DD too because I don’t drink at all. I used to back in college (and for a few years after) but I just don’t like the taste…before, I was drinking to get drunk and didn’t care. I like cooking with wine and beer but all the alcohol cooks out anyway!!

  26. Amanda says:

    Favorite drink has always been a cosmo. However now I’ve moved on to mango martini, YUM!

  27. Hela says:

    omg, those pomtinis look yummy!
    i only drink when i go out, but then i go 4 a couple of em 😉
    i love mojito n caipirinha, but also i love pina colada or, less fancy, bulmers pear :) n what i really like is malibu-sprite- summer spirit! come to think of it- i just love drinking, BUT: in moderation! hang overs are not very much fun^^
    happy wkend everybody! drink n enjoy :)

  28. Gina G says:

    i love the pictures you have been posting of you and your momma! =) and i am not a drinker (im a senior in highschool, but that dont really mean anything to the other kids my age hahah)
    have a great day Katie!

  29. Susan says:

    Chocolate-covered mom is too cute! Love her.

    I’m not a big mixed drinks girl, but I love a good beer!

  30. Dan213 says:

    Phew, glad to see that some other “normal” peeps have cropped up 😉

  31. HAHA when I got the case of POM the first thing my mom said was POM TINI’S!!!! she loves them and made some mean ones :)

    love the pics and brownie batter oatmeal..drooool

  32. Melissa says:

    Happy Birthday Katie! Hope it was wonderful!!!

  33. Those pomtinis sound delicious :) I wish we had some here too. I must go and find a substitute!

  34. Simply T says:

    Mmmm, pomtini!! I will have to try that, I’ve been looking for something to do with the remaining pom I have in the fridge – I made pomegranate sangria for a christmas party I hosted. Unfortunately, it yields a giant punch bowl’s worth and unless I have a zillion people over again, there’s just no way I’m drinking a punch bowl of sangria and getting out alive.

    Beer pong with water? Water pong, perhaps? I used to play beer pong all the time in college, and now looking back I have to think of how gross it was that the ping pong ball would miss the table and land in the dirt (if we were outside) or on the floor of the nasty fraternity house we were at, and we would just dunk it in some water and continue. And then drink the beer that the dirty ping pong ball lands in.

    Eh. What do they say? God made dirt and dirt don’t hurt?

    Or maybe the 10 second rule applies here?

    PS. You and your mom look positively adorable. Yay mother daughter bonding. I think I’ll go call my mommy :)

    PS – I’m hoping to have the beginnings of my veg blog up and running this weekend. I wouldn’t mind your critique when I do :) I’ll post you a link when I get it going.

  35. homecookedem says:

    I was just sent a case of POM also and have been making mocktails with it! 😉 I will have to try these babies out though since it’s the WEEKEND!! :)

  36. Justine says:

    I love beer! Well, good beer that doesn’t taste like dirty water. :)

    There is also something to be said for a gin&tonic….

  37. Abby says:

    I love that song! I so have it on my ipod hehehe

  38. Hehe Gina, yeah I don’t think many high schoolers care!

    Hela: your comment was so cute!!

  39. Abby,
    It’s on my ipod too! I thought I was the only one!

  40. Aww, thanks for featuring me Katie! Those Pomtinis look awesome. :)

  41. BroccoliHut says:

    Ooh! Pomtinis sound delicious–and it provides a perfect way to justify imbibing alcohol: “It’s all for the antioxidants!”

  42. Hela says:

    thx, katie :)
    forgot to say: drink and enjoy RESPONSIBLE 😉
    haha, broccolihut! ya know that sayin ” i only drink wine b/c of the vitamins in the grapes?!” lol

  43. Courtney says:

    I just commented my way into the POM giveaway on the other post, and the martinis look irresistably fab for the record, mmmm I’m over here drooling!

  44. Tori says:

    I personally love a good beer. Or a rum n coke. Or just straight up vodka.

    But I really don’t drink that often – maybe 1-2X a month?

  45. Marianne says:

    I may be a martini fiend. We need to watch hockey and drink martinis some day. And eat food with chocolate and coconut. LOL.
