Pomegranate Martini

"Simple and straight to the point. Update 11/12/13 for Cooking Tag Mania Special - I finally tried this myself and it is delicious! I sometime find martini type drinks too strong but this is nicely balanced. I was lazy and just used about a 1/2 -1 tsp sugar because I didn't have simple syrup on hand. The smaller amount makes for a fairly tart drink which I enjoy. I also tried it with a little lime juice which I also liked. I also made one with half 100 % cranberry and half 100 % pomegranate juice, this is a little less earthy tasting then all pomegranate. The most important thing is shaking it until it's nice and cold."

  1. Enjoying this as I'm typing, so if there are any typos, NO, I've not had too many! Very enjoyable martini, followed the recipe, except added straight sugar in place of the simple syrup. This will definately be enjoyed again, in about 5 minutes, and then again after 15 minutes, and...... Yes, confirming, it's a make-again. Heehee. Thank you momaphet for sharing. Made it for 2019 Susie's World Tour, Italy - Sue-Chefs!
  2. After seeing this knew I had to try it for our afternoon cocktail. Not only does it look pretty but taste so good. Tart like I like it. Would make such a pretty company cocktail.
  3. I enjoyed this tonight. But I only used 1 ounce of vodka in making mine. Now on to my next pomegranate cocktail. Made for ZWT7- Italy
  4. Yum! So easy, so good. I made a double batch for two of us but DH isn't a big Martini drinker and only had one. I now have had 3 and making dinner is going to be a challenge. :) I found this drink really refreshing and can see it becoming a regular for me. Made for Food.Commandos - ZWT 7
  5. Honestly - what is not to love about this drink?? I added a dash of lime to cut the sweetness from the syrup a bit. Scary how easy they are to whip up, too, I can see myself having Martini sessions while folding the laundry ;) Made for ZWT 7 - Food.Commandoes
