We had friends over for dinner last night and I made Sheri's yummy crabcakes as an appetizer. I kept second-guessing wine choices to go with them, when it occurred to me to serve Pomegranate Cosmopolitans. Excellent decision! They were a total hit.
We had jamabalaya for dinner, along with a simple salad made with Boston lettuce, sliced almonds, & Honey-Mustard Sherry Vinaigrette from Fine Cooking #83. For dessert we had The Perfect Flan.
2/3 c. pomegranate juice
1/2 c. vodka
1/4 c. Cointreau or other orange-flavored liqueur
2 tsp. fresh lime juice
4 lime twists
Place the first 4 ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice; shake to chill. Strain into Martini glasses. Garnish with lime twists.
