Pomegranate Cosmo
In addition to the quality of the ingredients, stirring or shaking long enough to melt some of the ice into the drink is probably the most essential element in achieving a balanced cocktail.
Makes: 1 cocktail
What You'll Need
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces fresh-squeezed or bottled 100% pomegranate juice
  • 1½ ounces citron or plain vodka
  • ½ ounce Cointreau
  • ½ ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 drop Angostura bitters (optional)
  • Lime wedge or twist, or a couple of pomegranate seeds, for garnish
What To Do
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker or pitcher with ice. Add the pomegranate juice, vodka, Cointreau, lime juice, and the bitters, if you are using them.
  2. Shake or stir vigorously for at least 30 seconds.
  3. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a small wedge or twist of lime, or a couple of pom seeds. The seeds will drop to the bottom but are a fun reminder of the basis for the drink as you finish it.
