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.
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.
