... Paradise Martini

When Mom and I decided to have 'Girls Night' the first obvious thing to do was select a drink recipe.  Enter: Paradise Martinis.  Vodka, yes please.  Pomegranate flavored vodka?  Most definitely.  Fruit juice, too?  Sold!

Three simple ingredients, a cocktail shaker, and a couple of glasses and you're in for a perfect night.


Paradise Martini

1 1/2 ounces Smirnoff Pomegranate flavored Vodka
2 ounces pineapple juice
1 splash cranberry juice
1 pineapple wedge (optional)

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker.  Add ice and shake until well mixed.  Strain into a martini glass and garnish with the pineapple wedge and / or a cherry.

Taylor's Notes:

Make many.  Enjoy!

This is quite interesting. I would like to find out for myself how did the pomegranate go with pineapple juice. Of course pomegranate martini is still my favorite. It's just that I realize that pom flavor really ties up everything else nicely when mixed in a drink. I'm curious how this one would go.

definitely give it a shot and let me know what you think! i thought that the pom, pineapple and craberry really went nicely together. it wasn't overpoweringly fruity, but very refreshing. what else do you add to your pomegranate martini?
