Shake all ingredients well with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Add a dash of rose water if available. Garnish with flamed orange peel, and serve. Our fan Murray W. on Facebook recommends trying the recipe with Grand Mariner [or Cointreau] instead of simple syrup.

No syrup for me and a twist of lemon peel. It is a lovely color, and interesting flavor.

Use unsweetend pomegrante juice from Trader Joe's, still no simple sugar and less juice cause it's stronger in flavor than Pomm.
Where's the Pomegranate?

Not a very strong pomegranate flavor and the simple syrup seemed unnecessary.

Skip the syrup, super chill the glass, shake well and add a twist of lemon and/or lime. Great taste, superb color and 1 is never enough...

I bought some Pomegranate Mix from Cocktail Central. The first time I made it was last weekend. It was okay. This time I made it with Triple Sec and it was delicious. I will serve by the bowl at my holiday party.

No syrup for me either, and I used 1/4 CUP (1/4 oz is a dribble!) of juice.

I prefer no syrup, and if I don't have citrus vodka, I just use regular one and add a splash of lime juice.

At Kelly's Restaurant in State College, PA they make a pomegranate martini using, Absolute Vanilla vodka, a coconut flavored rum and pomegranate juice. Yumm!!

Excellent. I don't know what "simple syrup" is. I'm new to the drink-making world, so maybe that is why. :)

I use PAMA instead of pomegranate juice, a little diff. but still works great. It's a good seller. Good smooth flavor.
A little twist

Try using Pomm. liqueur instead of juice,... very different kick.
posted by Joe @ 09:38PM, 8/23/07
I used 2-oz Pom juice, juice from a whole lemon (about 1-1/2 oz) and added 1/2 oz Blue Curacao. Sip slow to experience the variety of taste as the drink "slides' into your mouth and down the throat.

One part villina vodka, one part Alize cognac, a splash of pure Pomegranate juice shaken with ice. Serve in a chilled martini glass rimmed in bar sugar with a splash of Club Soda. Yes, it's a chick-drink but if you have it served in a German beer stein nobody will ever know!

Absolutely NO syrup...
Mix cranberry juice with pomegranate juice fresh lemon OR lime and vodka OR tequilla. Garnish with pomegranate seeds, which by the way CAN be frozen!! One is never enough!!

It is very good but we didn't try it yet.

Anyone know how to make this one? It tastes like drinking an apple pie.
Add a kick!!!!

Add ginger to the simple syrup, steep, cool and add to the rest of the ingredients. It gives the drink depth.

use a berry vodka ( I prefer Skyy) and pomegranate liquor 2 to 1, shake with crushed ice and you have a killer drink!

i used 1.5 cup pom juice, 1oz cointreu, and no simple syrup. this is the recipe that was on oprah's show and i wouldnt want it any other way. its delish.
posted by crossa @ 05:45PM, 12/27/07
I agree with Rick. I use the pomegranate liquer and I also use Cointrea for the orange flavor and regular Absolut. All Alcoholic....A much nicer kick but still smooth. I garnish with a slice of fresh orange as opposed to lime

Didn't have simple syrup so I put a cube of sugar in the glass and then the rest of the ingredients. It was delicious! Everyone asked for seconds.
