Pomegranate Lemon Drop

Making my lady gaga costume got me back in the party mood! Had some vodka and pomegranates were on sale today so this is what I came up with, Pomegranate Lemon Drop.

Anyone who goes out with me knows I order 1 of 2 drinks: cosmopolitan or lemon drop. Sweet and citrus are my favorite combination. I have been wearing you out with drinks with lime (probably because I bought the costco bag of limes), so I decided to turn to the lemon. Isn’t she beautiful!?

Pomegranate Lemon Drop….two layers of deliciousness

Here’s what you need (for 2 drinks):

1/2 cup simple syrup

1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds

3 oz lemon juice

3 oz vodka

lemon for garnish

 

Muddle ’em good

1. Muddle simple syrup and pomegranate seeds together. Muddle ’em good (as the caption says) until you get a deep red color. If you don’t have real pomegrante, you could use 1/4 to 1/2 cup pomegranate juice. Also, a wooden spoon serves as a good substitute muddler….but if you are making this drink it’s a good excuse to add to your bar tools!

2. Pour mixture into a sugar rimmed martini glass. Sprinkle a few extra pomegrante seeds into the glass over the mixture. This will help keep the two tone color appearance.

3. Squeeze 3 oz of fresh lime juice (about 1 large lime) into a shaker with 3 oz of vodka.

4. Shake lemon and vodka until chilled! Then carefully pour over pomegranate mixture. The more shaken the mixture and the more slowly you pour…..the better the results. Also, more pomegranate seeds helps to serve as a barrier to prevent the layers from mixing. This was my first failed attempt to separate them below, but it was delicious!

 

Double trouble

Give this one a try! It tastes just as yummy as it looks! Good luck 🙂
