  • There is nothing like homemade sour mix. The store bought stuff is just unacceptable for my cocktails. Great photo.

    Thank you! :) ~OPK

    I always wonder why people buy sweet and sour mix….. :)

    Well I had no idea it was so easy! I didn’t know what all was in it — what a lovely surprise! ~OPK

    Have you tried making grenadine? I made it last month, and never looked back.

    I have not! Do tell! ~OPK

    Its too simple, take 2 cups pomegranate juice, bring to a boil, then simmer til it reduces by about half. Add a cup of sugar, stir til dissolved, and let it cool. You can add red color if you feel the need, but it makes such a rich dark purpley colour on its own.
    That IS too simple! Thank you!!
