POMEGRANATE COCKTAILS


I heard tell that it was a really pomegranate that Eve used to tempt Adam in the Garden of Eden, not an apple. This makes sense because the Garden of Eden was supposedly somewhere in the Middle East and pomegranates originated there whereas apples come from Asia. It makes sense from a taste point as well, there is something so temptation worthy about pomegranates!

Evidently I am tempted by pomegranates as well. I had no idea I had so many pomegranate cocktails until I put this list together. I used pomegranate juice, pomegranate vodka and Pama Pomegranate Liqueur in a lot of cocktails! But then I really do like pomegranates, and they are so good for you health wise. I always have pomegranate juice and fresh pomegranates around so it's easy to grab when I want to add some tart fruity element to a recipe.

Below you will find a classic pomegranate martini, Christmas pomegranate cocktails, Halloween, Valentine's Day, chocolate, cherry, orange, lemon, cranberry and several combinations where pomegranate is featured. I'm sure in the future I'll come up with more and I will add them to this list!
