Description

Here’s the best pomegranate martini! This jewel-toned drink is sweet tart and light: the perfect fruity variation on this classic cocktail.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) vodka
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) 100% pomegranate juice (purchased or fresh squeezed)
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) Cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) simple syrup or maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Place the vodka, pomegranate juice, Cointreau, lemon juice, and syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake 15 seconds until cold. Strain the drink into a cocktail or martini glass.
  2. Use a knife to remove a 1″ wide strip of the lemon peel. Squeeze the lemon peel into the drink to release the oils. Gently run the peel around the edge of the glass, then place it in the glass and serve.
