I've seen them everywhere! I've even done a lot of playing around with the ole pomegranate and it's luscious juices....but I have to say...until today, I was a Pomtini "innocent". It was the peer pressure that got to me. I just couldn't say no anymore. The good vodka was on sale. Week after week. And they kept saying....oh just buy it!
But...but.....why isn't the good tequila on sale?!
So I bought it. Me not being a vodka drinker, had no idea what to do with it. So I searched for something to make tonight (because I happen to be out of tequila)...something that did not require me to change out of my sweats and schlep my lazy butt to the store.
And here you have it.....the perfect drink to make a lazy gal in her sweats and slippers feel special (and elegant if she closes her eyes)
2 oz Vodka
4 oz Pomegranate Juice
1/2 oz Orange Liquor
Shake with ice, and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with some pomegranate arils and a slice of orange.
The more you drink, the more special and elegant you will feel. Just don't look in the mirror.
Tips.....shoot. I had two of them. but I can only remember one. Ok...for the orange liquor, I used Patron Citronge. Triple Sec....I just can't like it. If you have an aversion to it, use a better quality orange liquor.
Oh ya.... the other tip.... just so those of you who don't know...1/2 oz equals one tablespoon. (You're gonna need that if you're getting ready to make your 3rd or something.)
