Pomegranate and Vanilla Cosmo Recipe

Pomegranates are particularly high in vitamin C and antioxidants. They are also said to curb your hunger and protect you from disease. Always use a 100% pomegranate juice with no added sugar. Or even better, blend seeds from 2 pomegranates with a little water and strain to get pure juice. The tangy taste makes it the perfect match for a Cosmopolitan cocktail.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • Ice cubes
  • 3 oz. citron vodka
  • 5 teaspoons Cointreau
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • Seeds from 1/2 vanilla pod
  • Orange curls, vanilla pods, and pomegranate seeds, to garnish

Equipment

Cocktail shaker, Cocktail strainer, and 2 Martini glasses

Directions

Half-fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in the vodka, Cointreau, pomegranate juice, agave nectar, and vanilla seeds. Pop the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for 1 minute. Strain into chilled glasses. Garnish with curled orange rind, vanilla pods, and pomegranate seeds.
