Day 5: Holiday Pomegranate Cocktail Recipe and {CAMERA GIVEAWAY}

pomegranate champagne cocktail On the 5th day of Christmas, j. sorelle gave to you…a Canon EOS Rebel T5 Camera with two lenses giveaway and an amazing holiday cocktail.

Cameras and Cocktails – that sounds like a party with memories worth capturing. We are those moms who always have the camera out and ready for a moment, a laugh and even a cheesy smile. Our mom was the same way, so maybe its generational. But, the moments are so fleeting and our kiddos grow up so fast. Photographs are our window to the past and a way to remember the present moments we want to hold on to before they are gone. We admit, cell phones are small and convenient to carry around and snap photos here and there, but the camera we have with us on family vacations, family reunions, the birth of our children, baby’s first steps, birthday candles being blown out, the first day of school, and every tiny and large moment in between, is our Canon. We are pumped to be teaming up with 15 other amazing bloggers to giveaway a Canon EOS Rebel T5 with two lenses. With so many cash giveaways happening online, we decided to participate in a giveaway that was a special gift for one of you. We know your hard-earned cash is going towards gifts for family and friends, so this is our way to treat one of our lucky readers {you} to a gift you can keep for yourself. And, it’s just in time to capture the moments and priceless reactions when friends and family open your gifts this holiday. Check out all the ladies joining us on this giveaway by clicking on their image below.

We promised you a cocktail recipe too, and this is one of our favorites {thanks Lea}. For the holidays we lovingly call it Christmas in the POM of Your Hand. pomegranate champagne cocktail for the holidays Ingredients


How To Create Christmas in the POM of Your Hand

  1. Pour about 1 shot of POM to the champagne glass. The POM juice should fill ¼ of the cup.
  2. Pour the bubbly.
  3. Add a small handful of Pomegranate seeds. They may float, or sink. Science experiment too. The Pomegranate seeds are so delicious to eat while you sip. Plus, hello antioxidants!

Cheers!
