Saturday Sippers in The Locker

Saturday Sippers in The Locker
Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! Welcome to the feature here in The Locker called Saturday Sippers. Each week I’ll post a new skinny cocktail recipe for you to try. Many thinks to my Cali Bestie, Rhonda, for providing me with the deck of cards recipe book. J
Saturday the 13th, it doesn’t have the same ring does it? The following cocktail is far from scary and has zero superstition behind it. HOWEVER, the pomegranate does have a special caveat—regarded by some as an aphrodisiac. The website Eat Something Sexy discusses this:
“the aphrodisiac power of
pomegranate
A prominent player in aphrodisiac lore, pomegranate was regaled as a culinary symbol of Aphrodite by the ancient Greeks. Some say the forbidden fruit of the Bible was not apple at all, but a pomegranate fruit. In other Western lore, the mythological unicorn was tied to a pomegranate tree. Since the early days of the written word, the promise of the pomegranate has made a lasting impression as a sensual symbol, appearing in poetic works of great authors from Homer to Shakespeare
Hmmm, makes that little red fruit more interesting, doesn’t it? I know I load my husband up on pomegranate juice as often as possible. I figure, it’s good for him anyway. J
