Pomegranate Cosmopolitans

Marc J. Sievers

When I think of making cocktails at home I get instantly overwhelmed with the amount of ingredients many specialty cocktails have.  I want to make drinks at home in under 3 minutes, and with less than 5 ingredients – like my Pomegranate Cosmopolitans!

 These fabulous libations are both a tiny bit tart and slightly sweet, a perfect combination for pre-dinner cocktails, or just a lazy Sunday afternoon at home.  The addition of Prosecco to top off each cocktail adds a bit of a bubbly-tingle, and makes them seem even more celebratory! 

 Cheers everyone!


Pomegranate Cosmopolitans

 Ingredients (makes two 10-ounce cocktails)

  • Pomegranate Juice – ½ cup
  • Triple Sec – ¼ cup
  • Vodka – ¾ cup
  • Lime – 1, juiced
  • Prosecco – 4 tablespoons, chilled, divided

Directions

  1. Start by combining the pomegranate juice, triple sec, vodka, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. 
  2. Fill with ice and shake for 30 to 45 seconds until nicely chilled.
  3. Pour into 2 martini glasses and top off each cocktail with 2 tablespoons of Prosecco.

Tip: You can make a big pitcher of these cosmos in advance and then keep it in the refrigerator.  Shake each cocktail over ice as needed – and remember to top of each cocktail with Prosecco!
