This pomegranate martini is festive, flavorful and gorgeous in the glass. The tang from the pomegranate juice is balanced with the addition of sugar, but the real star of this cocktail is the vodka.
- 3 ounces pomegranate juice
- 1½ ounces vodka
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 handful ice
- Pomegranate seeds, for garnish
Combine pomegranate juice, vodka, sugar and ice in a martini shaker, shake vigorously for 10 seconds and pour into your favorite martini glass. Garnish with pomegranate seeds.
For an extra touch of sweetness, wet half the rim of each glass before pouring and dip in a shallow plate of sugar.
