Oprah’s Pomegranate Martini

My husband and I decided to try Oprah’s Pomegranate martini last night.  A month ago I bought a bottle of POM juice from Safeway.   Well, it just stayed in the fridge.  We’re more of an orange juice family so no one touched it.  Then I remembered that one episode when Oprah made this pomegranate martini.  We both needed a drink so out came the ingredients.  I highly recommend this drink.  It was a bit girly for my beer-drinking husband but we liked it, and it complemented well with our popcorn and the finale of Amazing Race. 

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice

2 oz. Absolute Citron vodka OR white tequila

 1 oz. Cointreau liquor

Cup of ice

 Optional: Splash of sparkling water

Optional: Squeeze of lemon

Shake ingredients in a shaker and put in chilled martini glasses. Put pomegranate fruit into glass as garnish.
