Vodyac Pomegranate Tea

It looks like a sun brewed tea, and tastes like an “I don’t know what this is, but it’s good!”

At first, the notion of letting vodka sit in an old cognac barrel (what I call vodyac) was my idea of how to ruin perfectly good vodka.  However it is still vodka, I reasoned, and therefore something with which I can work.

I tested out mix proportions and came up with something so yummy that I may be changing my mind about vodyac. You see, my original plan was to give the finished cocktail to Austin, since he’s the one with a preference for amber colored spirits. However, I had to take a sip first. Then it just sort of became mine.

1) Fill a glass with ice, and pour in everything.
2) Stir and add cherries.
3) Sit on balcony and relax.

Moving day is fast approaching, but our final Sunday evening was a very nice one!

Ellis was quite helpful! He could teach a course in advanced relaxation techniques.
