Thanks to Oprah, the Pomegranate Martini became one of the hottest cocktails around a few years back. Pomegranate is still a popular flavor profile and it's also healthy because it's rich in antioxidants.
With my Sparkling Pomegranate Martini I've used pomegranate vodka instead of citrus vodka and replaced the sparkling water with Champagne for New Year's, giving the martini a much deeper pomegranate flavor and a touch more sweetness.
2 Oz. Chilled Champagne
1 Oz. Pomegranate Vodka
1 Oz. Pomegranate Juice
Garnish: Sugar Rim, Pomegranate Seeds
Glass: Cocktail (Martini) or Flute
Rim glass with sugar then chill glass in freezer.
Rim the glass with sugar then chill the glass in the freezer.
Add the pomegranate vodka and pomegranate juice to the chilled flute, then top off with Champagne.
Drop in the pomegranate seeds and serve.
