Red Lips Sink Ships


Pomegranate and Tequila Cocktail  Enjoy a Pomegranate and Tequila cocktail –  A Cosmo-rita?    A combination of  Tequila, Lime, Agave, Pomegranate, Rhubarb bitters and Prosecco, this sweet and sour drink is smooth, and goes down easily in a way that is elegant and refined.




The pomegranate and tequila cocktail will make anyone feel powerful enough to sink a ship! While 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).


1)Just fill your cocktail shaker Half way with ice, pour all of the ingredients except for the sparkling water or Prosecco

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