A crimson colored Pomegranate Martini - made with Mandarin vodka, orange liqueur, pomegranate juice, and orange blossom water. It's garnished with a lime slice and pomegranate seeds.



This beautiful, fruity pomegranate martini is a delicious tart, sweet, and citrusy cocktail.  The orange blossom water gives it an exotic flair.



1 lime wedge

Sanding sugar

2 ounces mandarin orange vodka

1 ½ ounce orange liqueur (I like Cointreau)

¼ cup pomegranate juice

¼ ounce lime juice

¼ teaspoon Orange blossom water

Pomegranate seeds as a garnish

Lime slice as a garnish


Run the lime wedge around the rim of a martini glass to moisten the rim.

Pour sanding sugar onto a small, flat saucer.

Dip the rim of the glass into the sanding sugar to coat the rim of the glass in sugar.  Set aside.

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the vodka, orange liqueur, pomegranate juice, lime juice, and orange blossom water.

Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is icy cold.

Strain the liquid into the sugar-rimmed martini glass.

Spoon a few pomegranate seeds into the cocktail and garnish with a lime slice.
