Ingredients you’ll need to make a Pomegranate Martini
Number one, the Vodka. With all of the vodkas on the market, I use Stoli, Absolut, Ketel One, or Grey Goose to make a martini. For example, a Dirty Martini has hardly any mixer, so I’ll use Grey Goose, a more expensive but smoother Vodka. Otherwise, the Stoli, Absolut, or Ketel One are perfect for a Pomegranate Martini.
For the remaining ingredients, you’ll need Cointreau, triple sec syrup, pomegranate juice, and lemon juice. You can use bottled lemon juice or fresh squeezed. For example, to make a Lemon Drop Martini, I’d go with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Still, the pomegranate juice covers the flavors, so if you choose to use bottled lemon juice, no one will know.
For a smooth tasting, not too sweet non-alcoholic triple sec syrup try this one.
You can’t mix a great martini without a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers, but this one from OXO is my favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces. And it is dishwasher safe! You can’t go wrong with OXO.
And remember the chilled martini glass. Nothing is worse than a martini in a warm glass. Check out these 2 that I recommend. Joy Jolt set of 6 martini glasses in multi-colors and Crafthouse by Fortessa, set of 4 martini glasses. They are both dishwasher-safe. Joy Jolt is a short martini glass, great for stacking in the freezer, and the Crafthouse by Fortessa is tall and elegant. Still, finding a safe spot to lay it down in the freezer is harder.
But if ‘bling’ is your style, you can find the bling martini glasses here. They make great holiday gifts for your entertaining friends. Of course, don’t forget to buy a pair for yourself.
