Pomegranate cocktail

I will say right up front that I’m not a big fan of this week’s cocktail. It had the makings of a nice drink — fresh, in-season fruit, and a simple recipe — but it was just blah. Frankly, it tasted like an over-hyped cosmopolitan, and I’m so over that. I cosmo-ed myself out in about 2001. But I guess it’s not bad, if you like that sort of thing.*

* Which, apparently, my husband does. He tasted my drink and liked it. For whatever that’s worth.

Cosmo-licious.

Pomegranate Cocktail
Based on this recipe

1 1/2 oz vodka
1 oz Cointreau
1 oz pomegranate juice
splash of lemon juice
splash of seltzer
pomegranate seeds for garnish

Combine all ingredients except the pomegranate seeds in a shaker with plenty of ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass, and serve garnished with pomegranate seeds.

Speaking of being cosmo-ed out, I simply cannot do the cocktail-a-week thing. Turns out I am less of a lush than I thought. Huh. I do like to experiment, though, so I’ll still be featuring plenty of new cocktails!
