Here’s a little holiday cheer to brighten up these dark winter days – a Pomegranate Martini with Rosemary!

Partnering with  Tito’s Handmade Vodka, I created this festive holiday drink featuring their small-batch Vodka, along with a rosemary-infused simple syrup, pomegranate juice and citrus.

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.

Ingredient Notes

  • 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!

making the 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!

  1. This looked so enticing I made a trip to the grocer yesterday just for pom seeds, juice, limes and fresh rosemary (I always have Tito’s on hand ;). It was a perfect Christmas Eve cocktail, looking very seasonal with it’s red and green! I made the simple syrup with sugar, increased the quantity a pinch in the cocktail, skipped the sugar rim, chilled the glasses like your photo, added a splash of prosecco, and garnished with a few pom seeds and a small rosemary sprig. Delicious, and we all loved it. Merry Christmas, Sylvia and team Sylvia!

  2. It is Christmas Eve. The Phô broth is simmering, the packages are under the tree, all the cookies are baked and the kitchen is cleaned up. Kids and grands will come tomorrow. Tonight I am enjoying a silent night with this delicious martini made with a really herby gin and lime…so refreshing!!! Happy Holidays!

    1. Awww… sounds very peaceful Mert. Have a very happy Christmas with your family today, and thanks so much for being here with us through the years. ❤️
