This recipe was the first recipe I’ve ever tried to do a “splash” photo with. It took forever and made the kitchen a huge mess.
But it was fun.
I had no idea how to do a splash shot so I grabbed the biggest ice cube I could find, put my camera on a tripod, used the 10 second burst timer and then just went for it.
Looking back, the ice was way too big and my shutter speed a little low. I took about 100 shots and only 1-2 turned out ok. I wanted the splash to be in prefect focus but because my shutter speed was just a hair to slow, it ended up blurry and not as sharp as I wanted.
It was my first try and since then I’ve gotten a lot better with them. I love attempting them because you will never get the same splash twice and it’s always a challenge.
Don’t worry though, no alcohol was harmed in the making of the splash shots. Haha! It was just pomegranate and lime juice in these ones.
Anyway, after attempting the splash it was time to make and shoot another riff on the Moscow mule – a pomegranate mule. The drink that has quickly become my go-to right behind a margarita.
These are super easy to make because you don’t need to shake anything and instead add it all right to your mug, stir, and enjoy!
If you’re making it for friends, garnish with a lime wheel and extra pomegranate arils to make it “fancy.”
