Pomegranate Martini

pomegranate-martini This Pomegranate Martini, made with renowned POM Juice,is an innovative rendition of the age-old concoction, and is sure to make your party a success! The “POMtini“, as its lovingly known, was apparently served at the Oscar Awards this year! Its a great winter cocktail martini which pairs grapefruit & pomegranate juice with vodka, to make a great recipe that looks beautiful and tastes heavenly! If you’ve not tried POM products yet, you’ve surely missed something delicious in life! Pomegranates have great health benefits, and this Pomegranate Martini is just one more way to enjoy those benefits!

Both me and my husband have been POM Juice lovers since past couple of years, and recently, POM was kind enough to send me a package of their products to sample and review. Besides POM Juice, their product range includes fresh POM Pomegranates, the light & refreshing POM Tea that comes in several flavors, and POM Pills. The Juice we sampled was vibrant and tart, and tasted just like fresh pomegranate. In fact, with no additives, its as healthy as eating the fruit, just without the pain of “juicing” one yourself!

This Martini recipe is just one example of how POM products can combine flavor and health in one glass! Their desserts are a totally different story altogether! But for now, here’s the Pomegranate Martini that won my heart! We served a Mocktail version of this recipe at a dinner last week (which I’ll post on my blog pretty soon), and it was a huge hit!

Ingredients
1 oz. freshly squeezed pomegranate juice or POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
1 1/2 oz. vodka
1 1/2 oz. grapefruit juice
1/2 oz. sour mix, or 1/2 oz. freshly squeezed lime
1/2 oz. simple syrup (equal parts sugar and cold water dissolved together)
Spiraled orange rind for garnish
Ice cubes

Directions
Assemble all ingredients in bar or mixing glass. Shake well with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.

Garnish with spiraled orange rind, and enjoy your delicious Pomegranate Martini with a loved one!

  2. I join u in your love for fruit martinis V!

    Anu – I agree! I wish I could take pictures like that!:) The POM juice site really has some cool recipes, especially their desserts! I’m sure you’ll love them:)

    As for the event, anything is fine, any cuisine, any course type, as long as it’s vegetarian, and is worthy of being served to guests on a holiday dinner:)

  3. Bring it on girl! Love the martini and whoever took the picture knows the art of tempting! I wish I could have one now…
    And Mansi, are there any restrictions for the Thanksgiving event? I mean, only fancy stuff or non Indian stuff?
    I have a bread recipe (non-Indian)I am working on, that is the reason I ask.

  4. Nice pic…I love all fruit martini.
