Though we adore so many amazing restaurants in San Luis Obispo, sometimes you just have to beat the crowds and keep things low key at home. However, low key does not have to mean lame! Instead, take the time to add some personal touches for your sweetheart and make the night special. Make an hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail to set the mood before dinner. It will kick things up a notch and make the evening feel special. Special can still be simple peeps, just check out this precious little gem!
Valentine’s Day Pomegranate Fling
1 pomegranate, seeded (you use 1 shot of the fresh juice) *
1/2 lime, juiced
1 cup club soda plus more for topping off

Place your pomegranate seeds in a blender or processor along with the juice of 1/2 a lime and 1 cup of club soda (reserve some of the seeds for garnish later).Pulvarize! Then, use a strainer to sift out all those seed cores.Pour one shot glass of the fresh juice over ice (if you want to skip the pulverizing, you can always use Pom pomegranate juice, it’s fresh and easy).Now add 1 shot of gin.Top off with more club soda.I adore the look of floating pomegranate seeds in my cocktail. They look like little rubies and they give such a fun burst in my mouth!Give her a mix and get ready to enjoy the freshness!Cheers to all you lovely Valentine’s out there!!
