Pomegranate Martini

Pomegranate Martini

We love pomegranate juice. It’s great for mixing with other juices, and in the spirit of the brunch mimosa, is fantastic when added to champagne. So I’m always looking for a new recipe.

One day Oprah shared her ingredients for a Pomegranate Cocktail on her show. It sounded simple:

1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
4 shots vodka
2 oz. Cointreau

Mix, shake and serve. Makes 4.

I wanted to make hers, but I had neither the vodka nor the cointreau. What I did have on hand was rum and Triple Sec.
I tried those ingredients and they worked beautifully. So here’s the retooled recipe.

1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
4 shots rum
2 shots Triple Sec

Pour over ice and stir. Yum!

I’m thinking about trying a Pomegranate Margarita next. I’ll let you know how it goes.
