Bottoms up and hale to the winning team!  I’m not playing favorites or predicting who will win the Super Bowl this Sunday. However, I wanted to offer a recipe from the fair city of Seattle. Next up is New England fare; to honor both teams. Whether you’re entertaining at home or tailgating drinks on the run, this citrusy cocktail balances sweet and tart brilliantly and the pomegranate makes it a celebration for not only the big game, but any day you feel the need to deliciously drink in a taste of Seattle.

½ cup blood orange juice
