This is something we came up with after trying to find a drink that used pomegranate juice. We used pomegranate juice that was flavored with cherries. The measurements we used were with a 1.5 ounce shot glass - 1.5 ounces is equivalent to 3 Tablespoons. The sugar on the rim gives it a pleasant sweetness that smooths the martini. Based on a martini recipe from an Iraqi restaurant.Enjoy!

Made as shown and would not change a thing. Great Valentine's celebration addition. Just the right combo of sweet and tart...used Splenda arount the edge of the glass...looked like winter frost. Realy enjoyed this, thanks for the recipe.

I've made a new house rule: If you get to the point that you fall off your chair, it's time to stop.
