I do enjoy a martini once in a while and I am quite particular on what I use. Vodka is my choice, and Grey Goose is my favorite. If none available, and it does happens, 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 martini 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 martini 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.
As with any alcoholic beverages, please consume reasonably.
