I made this pomegranate cosmopolitan to sip one evening, as a pleasant refreshment while I was catching up on e-mails on the home computer.
Popularized by a television show during its six year run at the turn of the century, these libations can still commonly be found on most cocktail menus. Although the cosmopolitan is ordinarily a cranberry concoction, I enjoyed the interesting twist with the addition of pomegranate juice.
2/3 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup vodka
1/4 cup Cointreau
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
Place pomegranate juice, vodka, Cointreau and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Add ice. Shake to chill. Strain into martini glasses.
