This recipe's emphasis on the sweet, tart flavors of fresh pomegranates produces a straightforward but vibrant cocktail.
  • 2 ounces Fresh Squeezed Pomegranate Juice*
  • 2 ounces Vodka
  • 1/4 ounce Simple Syrup**

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass.
Shake vigorously with ice and strain into a Chilled Martini Glass.

* To make Pomegranate Juice, cut a ripe medium sized pomegranate in half and squeeze with any conventional juicer. Each Pomegranate should yield about 4 ounces of juice.

** Simple Syrup is made by combining equal parts superfine sugar and water, bringing it to a boil, and letting it simmer until it has reached a syrupy consistency.
