November is all about the pomegranate, so much so that it is officially National Pomegranate Month. The mysterious fruit grows in abundance in our fair state, and we use it in a lot of recipes here. Mainly cocktail recipes. Hey, we like to party in California - and after cracking open one of these unwieldy fruits, we deserve a drink.
(A tip for getting at the edible part within the shell: To get the whole arils without creating a red, stain-y mess, separate the skin and seeds with hands and fruit submerged under water.)
