Calling all tequila lovers! Add some new life to your Pomegranate Martini recipe by swapping the vodka for tequila. You can thank me later.

I found some cocktail napkins at the store that say “Nothing bad ends with ‘tini.”

How perfect is that? Especially when my Pomegranate Martini is in the glass using said napkin as a coaster.

Each year my husband and I search for a new drink of the season, typically a martini. And we have had some good ones: Ginger Pear, Elderflower, and Chocolate to name a few. Here is how it works: I sample different cocktails, we copy the menu descriptions and then Kevin plays around with proportions and ingredients. We taste and adjust as needed and frantically write down the final recipe so we (well, mostly he) remember it.

The result? This smooth, not too sweet Pomegranate Martini.

The Pomegranate Martini has tequila, pomegranate juice, lime juice and Grand Marnier. And don’t forget a touch of grenandine. Just a small amount, but it makes a big difference. Shake it up and serve it with a sugared rim. It is smooth, not too sweet and a great cocktail to start the evening.

Are you checking your liquor cabinet yet? You should be. After all, nothing bad ends with ‘tini. Cheers!

Tip: Make sure you take the extra step and sugar the rim of the glass before serving. It makes a huge difference in the taste of the martini.

    Lisa – Tried this out over the holidays and the whole family liked it! Some of us added a little soda to fizz it up and dilute it a bit – those people will remain nameless… 🙂
