Of course we all know the benefits by now of eating pomegranates or drinking pomegranate juice. It is rich in antioxidants, vitamin K and potassium. Bonus is that it is also delicious. Never more so than when it is mixed with good vodka, a little orange liqueur and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. The beautiful color will pull you in, and the tart refreshing drink will beg you to stay.
The ingredients on their own are stunning, don’t you agree? But, shaken together over ice….well you will just have to taste for yourself. And you will not believe how easy it is to make! This is an elegant drink that I am sure you will enjoy serving to your guests, or just sipping by yourself (you deserve it).
- 1 ounce citrus vodka
- ½ ounce orange liqueur
- 3 ounces pomegranate juice
- Lime wedge
- Combine vodka, liqueur and pomegranate juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until very cold and strain into martini glass. Squeeze lime wedge over drink and drop in.
While you are treating yourself, try a Milkhouse Pomegranate Martini candle. It is sweet, tart and spicy just like this delicious cocktail.
