I adapted this delicious Pomegranate Martini recipe from Oprah Whinfrey's television show which featured this recipe on her show called Oprah and
Rachael Ray Throw a Holiday Party.
Pomegranate Martini Recipe:
Beverage and Cocktails
Yields: 2 servings
Prep time: 10 min
1 1/2 cups fresh pomegranate juice (see recipe below for making juice if you
can't find it at your local store)*
2 ounces Absolute Citron Vodka or white tequila
1 ounce Cointreau Liquor
Splash of sparkling water
Squeeze of lemon
Superfine sugar for dipping
Pomegranate seeds, garnish (optional)
* Pomegranate Juice may be purchased at most
grocery stores and also on line.
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Place pomegranate juice, vodka, Cointreau, sparkling water, and lemon juice; shake,
Pour strained liquor into sugar-rimmed martini cocktail glass. Garnish each with some pomegranate seeds.
NOTE: To create a sugar-rimmed
glass, take a lemon or lime wedge and rub the drinking surface of the glass so it is barely moist. Dip the edge of the glass in the sugar.
