Pomegranate Cosmopolitans

My mom and I tried out a refreshing cocktail recipe the other night to help relieve ourselves from the weekend’s persistent 90 degree heat. Pomegranate Cosmopolitans – from Ina Garten’s Back to Basics cookbook – are a great update on the slightly outdated cosmo. They were sweet, tart, and (stretch) maybe even a tiny bit healthy!

Pomegranate Cosmos
2 c. good vodka
1 c. orange liqueur (Cointreau)
1 c. cranberry juice cocktail
½ c. pomegranate juice
½ c. freshly squeezed lime juice (3 limes)
Lime slices, to garnish

Combine the vodka, orange liqueur, pomegranate juice, and lime juice in a pitcher and refrigerate if not serving right away. Pour each portion over ice cubes in a cocktail shaker, shake well, and pour into frozen martini glasses with a slice of lime. Makes six cocktails.
