Friday night we went to Olive Garden to celebrate my father’s birthday. PAR-TAY!
GamerMan and I got there first, and after launching myself from the car so I could get our names in and not wait 4 hours for bread sticks, I found there was absolutely no line and was immediately seated. How’bout that! SO, while the hubs parked the car, I ordered a drink!
Our waitress was super nice and suggested the Pomegranate Margarita Martini. It was delicious and devoured in .4 seconds. But being $10 a pop, I wasn’t about to order another one so I impatiently (and apparently quite loudly) waited until I got home before running to the interwebs to find a comparable recipe.
Lucky for me the copycat recipe immediately popped up. Unlucky for me, I didn’t have all the ingredients (and I wasn’t about to spend $100 on booze after all.the.cute.props I just.bought). So I did what any geeky lush would do – AN ADAPTATION!
