Recipe by popular request.
- 500 ml or 2 cups excellent vodka
- 500ml or 2 cups 100% pomegranate juice
- The juice of one thin skinned lemon strained, preferably a Meyer's
Shake in ice, and serve in chilled martini glasses.
If you serve this as a featured cocktail at a party, pre-mix large batches. Anyone sipping one of these will never conceive that it's not 90% alcohol. Don't let amateurs mix these. Immoderate behavior will result. (Even at the recommended dosage, odd behavoir may result.)
Leftovers freeze well. In the summer you can scoop this out as a frozen drink.
Forget the Cointreau, or any other filler. Stick with the good stuff. Don't mess with perfection.
