Pomegranate Cosmopolitans

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.

Pomegranate Cosmopolitans
makes 4

2/3 c. pomegranate juice
1/2 c. vodka
1/4 c. Cointreau or other orange-flavored liqueur
2 tsp. fresh lime juice
ice cubes
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.

Sounds delicious! I'm going to use that recipe for my Christmas Punch this year (but I'm going to incorporate Lichido Liqour--my whole family is obssessed with lychees). I think it'll taste amazing with your recipe. Txs!
