Powerful Pomtini

This is my current absolute favorite drink. I love it. During all the parties of the holidays I made giant batches of it and brought it with me everywhere. It’s potent and perfectly pom-licious. I warn you though – I’ve seen 6′ 4″ men succumb to the power of these “tinis”. They think it’s a girly drink and they’ll have no problem plowing thru a couple. They are wrong. As my husband recently said “Honey, if bars made ‘girly drinks’ the way you make them, all men would drink girly drinks at bars”. It’s true.

Make sure you use the real pomegranate juice (pictured) if you can. It makes all the difference in the world. And, you get antioxidant super juice with your alcohol! You can substitute triple sec for the Cointreau if you want, but a) it will be less powerful and b) it won’t be nearly as smooth and delicious. I don’t like my drinks sweet really – and the triple sec just makes it a little sugary for my tastes. Enjoy!

Powerful Pomtini

2 parts vodka
2 parts pomegranate juice
1 part Cointreau

Combine all ingredients in a shaker full of ice. Shake vigorously 30 times. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lime if desired.

For those of you unfamiliar with the 1 part/2 parts recipe format — this means if you’re making 1 drink, do 2 ounces vodka & pom and 1 ounce Cointreau. If you’re making a batch, do 2 cups vodka & pom and 1 cup Cointreau.
