TGIF! It's Friday (aka party time)! The end of the work week is the perfect time to chill with friends and have a cocktail or two. And, remember drinks can be healthy too. Instead of the same-old beer or glass of wine, mix it up with a major shot of antioxidants.
Healthy Hollywood recently stumbled upon some awesome cocktail recipes made with POM Wonderful 100% Pomegrante juice.
Celebrities like Audrina Patridge, Ice-T, and Aubrey O'Day are all fans of this super juice.
