Mr. Houseful is the person that introduced me to 5-hour ENERGY drink. Mostly because he likes to use it when we are doing road trips, for those times that I like to rest my eyes in the passenger side seat, and don’t provide the witty banter he would like. They’re a staple, but I have to be honest, when I smelled the contents of one, I was turned all the way off. It was one step higher than cough syrup, and I HATE liquid medication. It’s just – blergh. Why feel worse when I’m trying to get better? So, when I was challenged by 5-hour ENERGY to #Yummify my drink, I conceded, and this is what I came up with.

For my drink, I decided to use my Pomegranate flavored 5-hour ENERGY shot, and mixed it with 2 tablespoons of ginger simple syrup, added two tablespoons of pomegranate seeds, and added chilled sparkling water for an adult sparkly bevarage that provided hours of energy and alertness for this mama, AND tastes good, because I can’t stomach them as straight shots. I’m a wimp like that. I came up with the name Pomegranate Ginger Snap while I was resting my eyes in the passenger seat of the car, and I think that it will stick.
