Pomegranate Cosmo – Cocktail of the Week
I was breaking apart a fresh pomegranate this morning to add to my yogurt, when I thought, "Ya know, the world needs more pomegranate in things..."
Good thing it's Friday, and time for the cocktail of the week!
I'm keeping things pretty simple, with an easy twist on a classic drink.
Now, seeing as it's pomegranate season, you can certainly make your own fresh pomegranate juice.
That is a lot of work.
Feel free to just buy the bottled juice this time. It's in every grocery store, either in the produce section or next to the OJ. (Note: that never applies to lime juice. Bottled lime juice is terrible and there's no excuse for it.)
- 1.5 oz. cranberry vodka
- .5 oz. triple sec
- .5 fresh lime juice
- 1 oz. pomegranate juice
- fresh pomegranate arils (seeds), to garnish
Shake all ingredients over ice, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Drop in a few fresh pomegranate arils for a sweet little bite post-cocktail!
Switch it up:
Try plain vodka, or a flavor like cherry, orange, or lemon for a different taste.
Use more or less of any ingredient to suit your tastes.
Add some pomegranate liqueur for an extra pom flavor!
