Pometinis


This is Cathy's favorite martini, Kristin's a big fan as well, and I must say it's way high on my list too. Not only does it have a crisp taste but it looks festive and is perfect for your next cocktail party. Fabulous!

Use the martini shaker lid to measure:

1½ citrus vodka
1 Cointreau or orange liqueur
splash Pom Juice
splash seltzer
garnish with lemon or orange rind


Assemble all ingredients in bar or mixing glass. Shake well with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with spiraled orange or lemon rind.

Tip:
For a festive presentation, instead of garnishing with the orange rind, try rimming your martini glasses with superfine sugar and garnishing with a slice of fresh lime.
Btw, when I made them for TQ's Cocktail Lounge, I didn't have any seltzer, so I gave it a splash of ginger ale. It was great! Oh, and I always go a little heavy on the POM, just because I love it so much. Great then!
