Red Lips Sink Ships

This tangy pomegranate and tequila cocktail will make anyone feel powerful enough to sink a ship! Where a pink drink (like a pink panty dropper) may take away your inhibitions, this RED drink may empower you!

Until lipstick was popularized in the early 20th century, red lips were often associated with morally dubious women: impolite, sexually amoral, even heretical.  The shift to red-painted lips designating a powerful woman came from the Suffragette Movement.  In her book, Red Lipstick: An Ode to a Beauty Icon, Rachel Felder states “There could not be a more perfect symbol of suffragettes than red lipstick because it’s not just powerful, it’s female.”  Come WWII, women all over the world defiantly wore red lipstick as it was said Adolf Hitler did not like red lipstick.  You ladies know what a man who is afraid of powerful women has (or that is, doesn’t have).

The ease of this tasty drink gives you more time to show off your power (shaking).  Just fill your shaker with ice and all of the ingredients except for the sparkling water or Prosecco

Shake it!  Hard!

Strain into a martini glass, top with your sparkling water or Prosecco, and garnish with a lime.

Grab on to your power, paint your lips, sip this cocktail and sink that ship baby!
