DIY: Pomegranate Martini

Posted by Kelly

I've been through many drink phases over the years. Starting with margaritas, then a college phase of bad mixed drinks, then lemon drops, then greyhounds, and now...Pomegranate Martinis. I made them for Thanksgiving and I'm ready to make them again at Christmas (I may have even made them tonight...there's just no wrong time to make them.)

What You'll Need:
- Vodka
- Triple Sec
- Pure Pomegranate Juice (not pomegranate juice cocktail)
- Fresh Lemon Juice (lime juice works also)
- Sugar
- Pomegranate Seeds

Step 1: Juice lemons.

Step 2: Sugar rim your martini glasses.

Step 3: Combine 1.5 oz vodka, 1 oz triple sec, 1 oz pomegranate juice, and .5 oz fresh lemon juice in martini shaker. (Double to make cocktails for 2.) 

Step 4: Shake.

Step 5: Pour into your sugar rimmed martini glass and garnish with pomegranate seeds.
