Pomegranate Cosmos

Just in time to toast SATC 2, and the phenomenon that introduced hordes of Carrie Bradshaw wannabes to the  practically-pure-booze goodness  that is the Cosmopolitan, I give you an oh-so current update on the drink that The Hub used in his proposal to me all those years ago. (Well, he tried to anyway… but that is a story for another post.)

Shakers ready, ladies?

What you need:

1.5 oz. – Pomegranate juice (a shot glass is about 1.5 oz usually)

1.5 oz – Vodka of your choice (we go back and forth between Svedka and Pinnacle at the Tree House)

Juice of one lime wedge (or a squirt off the plastic lime, if you roll Klassy like Keri)

optional – teaspoon of sugar spread on small plate and lime twist or slice

(shaker, glass, ice)

What you do:

Fill glass with ice and add water – allow to sit and chill while you build your beverage

To ice filled shaker add:

Pomegranate Juice

Vodka

Squirt or squeeze of the lime juice

Close the shaker tightly and shake until your hands are too cold to go on shaking

Discard ice from glass and (if desired) invert glass into sugar spread on plate and wiggle to coat rim with sugar.

Pour drink into glass, add lime garnish if desired.

Mmmmmmm.  Now you could add a bit of Triple Sec or Cointreau if you wanted, but I didn’t want to mask that Pomegranate flavor too much – the lime brightens things up a bit without making it super sweet.

Cheers to Carrie and the girls  – She spells her name wrong, but she seems like a pretty great girl anyway.  😉
