I’ve got a thing for pomegranates. I’ve absolutely loved them since I was a little girl. My mother would sometimes surprise me with a big shiny pomegranate, a rare treat, my favorite treat. I would patiently clean the entire thing and then suck the juice out of a handful of arils at a time. I still do that sometimes, but now I usually just buy fresh pomegranate juice. What can I say, I’ve also got a thing for immediate gratification. Though it is a bit tannic, Evolution Freshest Pomegranate juice is, by far, the best I’ve found.
1 ½ ounces vodka, chilled
6 ounces pomegranate juice, chilled
4 ounces soda water, chilled
Combine all of the ingredients in a chilled martini glass and serve immediately.
Serves 1. The vodka really brings out the flavor of the pomegranate juice, but feel free to leave it out if you prefer a nonalcoholic beverage.
