Serves 4| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup vodka
- 1/2 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/4 cup Cointreau
- lime slices, for garnish
- Chill 4 martini glasses. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring the sugar and ¼ cup water to a simmer. Remove from heat and let cool.
- In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the vodka, juices, and Cointreau. Add 2 cups ice and stir until well chilled.
- Strain the martinis into the chilled glasses; garnish each with a lime slice.
If you have a cocktail shaker, use it in place of the pitcher. Divide the recipe in half and shake it up with plenty of ice.
