Pomegranate Martinis

Here's a few recipes I found that make great use of pomegrante juice.

Pomegranite Martini
3 oz. Absolut Citron
2 oz. Pomegranite juice
1 oz. of Cointreau
Mix like a regular martini, strain into champagne glass.
Add a few pomegranite seeds and a curl from a lemon peel for a nice presentation.
Serves 1.

2 ounces pomegranate or citrus vodka
2 ounces pomegranate juice
Juice of one lemon
1 ounce simple syrup
Simple syrup is 1 part sugar 1 part water heated til the sugar disolves
Shake well with ice until condensation begins to form on shaker, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge.

In these times of convenience food, it's nice to actually cook.
