I’m a vodka girl. I’d say any of us that imbibe whether frequently or not have a go to favorite spirit. Mine happens to be vodka. Was it due to years of being exposed to the incredible James Bond films and his signature “Shaken not stirred” martinis? Maybe. No matter where the taste came from I am a sucker for ordering and trying new martinis wherever I go.
This year one of the best creations I came across was in New York City this December at the Refinery Rooftop. A great rooftop space with incredible ambiance and amazing views of the Manhattan Skyline. The natural lighting, décor, and friendly atmosphere made it a great stop for our Friday afternoon cocktailing. The drink we ordered was called Pom-ises Pom-ises.
It was served in a beautiful copper martini glass. With a little google research with new friends I met at the corner of the bar, we found the exact glasses on Amazon.com along with some more affordable options as well. Here is my recreation of the drink.
1 3/4 to 2oz Vodka (Tito’s or your favorite brand or even an already infused pomegranate vodka. I do Tito’s as it is gluten-free)
1/2oz Pomegranate Juice (POM or Simple Truth brands are great options and easy to find at your local super store)
1/3oz Orange liqueur
Fresh lime juice
Slice of Lime
Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice
Shake and strain into a copper martini glass or glass of choosing
Garnish with Lime slice
