Pomegranate Cocktail

Recipes / Beverages

From The Boston Globe Magazine, 2004 November 21

Serves 1

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 parts Stolichnaya cranberry vodka
  • 1 part pomegranate juice or puree
  • Twist of lemon

Pour the sugar onto a bread plate. Wet the rim of a martini glass by dipping it in water. Dip the wet rim into the sugar. Hold the glass upside down until dry (30 seconds or so), then set the glass aside. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the vodka and pomegranate juice. Shake and strain into the sugared glass and garnish with the twist of lemon.

Notes: Haven't tried it yet. I have to wait 30 seconds for the glass to dry before I can prepare my bevy? I'm not sure I can wait that long.
