It's my birthday and you better believe I'm celebrating it from weekend to weekend. I know that a lot of people aren't fond of birthdays, and maybe I won't be when I'm 65 years old, but until then I'm going to love the hell out of my birthday. I make sure to take a vacation day from work, take the day to relax and think about my life and what I've created for myself, feel grateful, get together with friends, and definitely make sure I eat a good meal (or two).
So because we need to take a moment and celebrate, we're breaking out the blender for this cocktail. I know it's winter and cold and blah blah blah, but this drink is basically an adult slurpee and that's worth turning up the heat and enjoying a frozen drink.
I hope you all have a lovely week, because I'm incredibly grateful for those of you following along at home. I'm thankful that people come to this little part of the internet I've created and hopefully you enjoy it. Cheers!

**If you have a smaller blender or are worried about too much liquid for your blender, half the recipe to make one drink at a time.
In a blender, add ice, pomegranate juice, and gin. Using a fork, juice half a lime into blender and pulse until the drink is slushy. Pour into a pint glass and garnish with pomegranate seeds and a lime slice. Enjoy!
