Here’s a little holiday cheer to brighten up these dark winter days – a Pomegranate Martini with Rosemary!
Refreshingly tart, and subtly sweet with a hint of rosemary, it’s my kind of cocktail and I’ve been enjoying them perhaps a little too much lately.
Table of Contents
- Citrus: The first few times I made this, I used lemons and meyer lemons- then I switched to limes, which to me, made it more refreshing.
- Alcohol– use your favorite vodka or gin, or try a non-alcoholic brand like SeedLip. I love the Grove and Garden flavors
- Pomegranate Juice– if using sweetened pomegranate juice, you may need less simple syrup.
How to make a Pomegranate Martini
Make the rosemary-infused simple syrup!
Just add sugar ( or honey) and water and rosemary springs to a pot and heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Let cool and that’s it – it is done!
Make the martini!
In a shaker, add two ounces of vodka, ¾ ounce of fresh citrus juice, ½ ounce of Rosemary simple syrup, and 1 ounce of pomegranate juice, and shake it up with ice.
Taste and adjust to your liking!
Pour it into a glass with a sugared rim if you like.
Garnish with a rosemary sprig and pomegranate seeds.
Can this be made ahead?
Yes! The recipe can be multiplied, mixed without ice, and stored in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
Can this be made without alcohol?
Yes, find a good non-alcoholic substitute like this Seedlip Brand- Grove or Garden. Garden is my favorite Gin substitute!
