The pomegranate: that beautiful red fruit that you walk by in the store and think, “I have to buy one.” And then you get it home and think, “what am I supposed to do with this!?” I’ve never had much luck getting a lot of juice out of one, so I’ll heavily suggest you purchase a bottle of POM Wonderful to go along with it. Cutting the pomegranate apart and grabbing some of the seeds to garnish your merry little pomegranate martini is a lot easier, albeit messy!
In a cocktail shaker over ice add:
- 2 oz. Tito’s vodka
- 2 oz. POM Wonderful juice
- 1/2 oz. simple syrup
- 1/2 oz. meyer lemon juice
- 8 dashes Fee Brothers orange bitters
Shake until chilled and pour into a martini glass. Toss a handful of pomegranate seeds in the glass and garnish with a meyer lemon twist.
Make enough for all and toast to your family and friends. And we’ll toast to you all having a safe and happy holiday season. Cheers!
