Pomegranate Martini. Stir or Shaken?

Once in a while we all feel like James Bond and enjoy a perfect martini drink. Classic cocktails that we love and enjoy. I played outside the box and created something fun and a bit festive.

So many recipes to choose from:

Gin and dry vermouth poured into a mixing glass or cocktail shaker and served a lemon peel or a lemon twist. The classic martini if you may.

Then you have a dirty martini with olive and juice. Apple martini. Chocolate martini. Mango martini.

Choices and more choices. The list keeps on growing. Pineapple juice, lime juice, vodka martini, the list is huge.

I do enjoy a martini and I am quite particular about the liquor I use.

Vodka is my choice, and Grey Goose is my favorite. If none is available, which it has happened that the restaurant or bar had none on hand, then I select Bombay Sapphire Gin. I enjoy the taste of each.

With this creation of mine, do not let this sweet and refreshing pomegranate fruit taste fool you as the simple syrup will hide the flavor of the vodka. Start with less vodka and add as you wish.

The recipe below is for 10 regular size glasses. I place all the liquid ingredients together in a decanter and chilled until ready to use.

Perfect when you have a party so you do not have to become the mixologist and you can offer the choice between shaken or on the rocks.

Do not use pomegranate extract, it will not give you the taste and feel that you are looking for.

Glassware

Select the perfect glass to showcase your martini. Tall thin stem leading to open face glassware. The crystal or glass has to be thin and delicate, my preference of course.

Chill the glass before pouring your drink into it.

My personal preference is not to let the vodka or gin linger on the ice. I am more of a purist and less water diluting my drink is the best for me.

As with any alcoholic beverages, please consume reasonably.
