Pomegranate Cosmopolitan

958

When a representative from POM Wonderful generously provided me with a dozen bottles of pomegranate juice, I was thankful but hesitant. I had never tried the stuff before, or even had any drink, dessert or other dish containing pomegranate, and for good reason. My mother is break-out-in-hives, throat-swellingly allergic to the fruit, and frankly, I didn’t want to take the risk that I would be too.

But, I did.

… And it’s a good thing I don’t have the same bad reaction, because I think I’ve found my new favorite cocktail! I know you’ll love it too, whether it serves as a festive holiday cocktail or a casual after-dinner drink. The sweet, slight bitterness of the pomegranate and orange juice is delicious, and combined with a splash of fresh lime juice and a shake with some ice cubes, it’s magic on your tongue!

If you don’t drink, don’t worry about it! Just replace the vodka with some clear, fizzy soda, and you’ve got yourself a sinless version of the same cocktail.

  19. Oh yea, this is my kind of cocktail! Love the color and I’m so making it this weekend :o) Too bad I have to purchase my POM juice at the store instead of getting it shipped to me LOL

    Such a pretty drink!

  21. OMG, Peter and I went through a period a few years ago of drinking cosmos (with pomegranate juice) before dinner. This is a blast from the past.

  22. Cosmos are one of my favorite drinks, and the thought of adding pomegranate juice to them makes it sound even better! Plus, this would make a lovely holiday drink. Thanks for sharing!

  23. That sounds so super-delightful.

    I’ll be hosting a POM Party on 11/13, courtesy of POM Wonderful, and intend to serve POM Margaritas…but I think this might need to be on tap, too. Though, I better be careful or the food might come out pretty sloppy, indeed. :)

  24. That sounds great, Heather! Are you serving food made with the POM juice, too? I wouldn’t even know where to start in terms of cooking with the stuff, but I can make a great cocktail!

  25. This sounds delicious! I would love to get a box of pomegranate juice! I responded to your comment on my blog but in case you don’t see it- I’m only 45 minutes outside of Austin so you have to let me know when you move and we can grab coffee or something :)

  26. Marla {family fresh cooking} says:

    Glad to read that you do not share the same allergy as your mom. This pom cocktail is beautiful!

  27. I’m forwarding this to my husband right now, so he can make me one to celebrate his birthday. I’ll make the cake, he can provide the PomCos!

  28. I love the photo and I have always LOVED pomegranate cosmos!

  29. Love this. Pom juice is great in so many recipes but right now I could really use your cocktail. Yum.

  36. perfect to a girls night out:) and the color is just pretty! i love this already. thanks for sharing.

  37. This is the best weblog for anybody who desires to search out out about this topic. You understand so much its nearly arduous to argue with you (not that I really would need…HaHa). You positively put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just nice!
