It’s snowing in Seattle! I really was hoping that I wouldn’t have to go in tomorrow but after floating the idea to my boss, it’s probably a no go. Damn! Oh well…I did get off a little bit early on account of the weather tonight to make one of these: The Ruby Screwtini. The perfect drink to celebrate with if you do get snowed in tomorrow 🙂
I love any excuse to make a martini and after I got these cute pomegranate crystals from my sister-in-law for cocktail stirrers, I decided to make a drink to use them on! This drink is a mix of Cosmo and Screwdriver….hence the name Cosmo Screwtini 🙂
Here’s what you need:
1/2oz triple sec
1/2oz orange juice
2oz cranberry-pomegranate juice
optional pomegranate sugar crystal stirrers
Toss everything in the shaker and pour into a martini glass. Zest an orange peel for garnish. This drink isn’t super sweet so if you like something that’s little on the mild side this is a good one. The crystal sugar stirrer makes it sweeter but you could substitute a sucker/lollipop or can just add a few drops of simple syrup instead!
