Cosmo Pomegranate Drink
My cosmo pomegranate drink is a twist on a cosmopolitan. While traditional cosmopolitans use cranberry juice, citrus vodka and lime juice, my recipe opts for pomegranate juice, lime juice, orange liqueur and vodka. This provides a tart, yet sweet flavor. I love to pair this drink with a fish dish (check out some of my favorite here).
How To: Cosmo Pomegranate Drink
If you know ahead of time that you’re going to make this cosmo pomegranate drink, place some martini glasses in the freezer ahead of time so you have a nice and chilled drink.
To make this delicious cocktail, all you need to do is pour the vodka, orange liqueur, pomegranate juice and lime juice in a pitcher and stir! To serve, remove the martini glasses from the freezer, pour in some of the cosmo pomegranate drink, and garnish each glass with a lime peel. Enjoy!
For the kiddos, make this a virgin cocktail by removing the vodka and liqueur and adding lemonade or limeade!
Pomegranate Juice Health Benefits
This ruby red juice provides us with added nutrients to this cosmo pomegranate drink. Pomegranate juice is high in antioxidants and potassium. The antioxidants in pomegranate juice protect our cells from harm, and the potassium helps to keep our muscles healthy.
To get these health benefits in other ways, you can add pomegranate juice to a variety of drinks or use them in recipes like my Pomegranate Poached Pears! Try adding pomegranate juice to seltzer water, iced tea, smoothies, or other cocktails like sangria, or a mimosa.
