Before we get on with the recipe, here’s something you should know.
Martini Vs Margarita
I’ve been a teetotaler almost my entire life except for maybe a sip of this or that here and there. So, I’m completely new to alcoholic beverages and I’m learning the basics. I thought I’d share what I learn and try, with you too.
I’m in the midst of trying new cocktail recipes and it’s kinda addictive.
So, What is a Martini?
Martini is the universally accepted form of a cocktail. The best part about martini is that you can personalize it, suiting your taste. A classic martini is quite simple – gin, dry vermouth and garnished with an olive or two. It is never shaken, but stirred instead.
But as I mentioned, over the years, we’ve come up with many ways to customize it and honestly, there is no right or wrong way to making a martini.
Gin can be replaced with vodka, there are advocates for shaking a martini and instead of olives serve with a slice of lemon.
A Margarita, on the other hand, is another classic cocktail but from the family of sours. It is usually a good tequila, lime and a sweetener like an orange liqueur.
This Martini is made from the goodness of pomegranates- a powerhouse of Vitamin C and fiber. Those ruby red seeds also give a perfect crunch to the cocktail.
How to Make Pomegranate Martini
Pomegranate martini is a perfect blend of sour, sweet and refreshing. All it needs is a good amount of pomegranate juice, your favorite vodka, a dash of orange juice, sparkling water, and a squeeze of lemon.
- In a pitcher, mix together the pomegranate juice, vodka (I used the orange-flavored vodka), orange juice, sparkling water, and lemon juice.
- Chill in a refrigerator until required.
- Serve chilled in a cocktail glass, garnished with pomegranate granules and lemon slices.
