Pomegranate Cosmopolitan Fa la la la la

The tree is trimmed and to celebrate the holiday spirit, it’s time for a Pomegranate Cosmopolitan, my holiday tipple of choice for an evening in. Tis the season!

Here’s the recipe as I adapted it from Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics. 

Pomegranate Cosmopolitan

(makes two)

  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur (I use Marie Brizzard, you can also use cointreau)
  • 1/4 cup cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • juice of one lime

You can omit the cranberry juice and use 1/2 pomegranate juice instead for an even more ruby red and delicious cocktail. This is a pretty potent drink, at least in my opinion. If you prefer something a little milder, decrease the vodka or add extra juice. 

Pour all ingredients into a shaker with ice.  Shake like a barkeep, enjoying the captivating sound of swishing and clinking, until the shaker is very cold. Pour into martini glasses. Savour and relax, enjoying the twinkle and glow of the season. Cheers!
