Tonight I will be ringing in the new year with a close group of friends and sharing the hottest thing in Vodka right now. So follow me on Periscope at @midori_verity, to join my New Year’s Party LIVE at 7:30pm PST. I’ll be making the following cocktail for the party, so go head and get everything ready to make it with me! See you then.
KEY LIME & POMEGRANATE COCKTAIL:
Marry the flavors of pomegranate and Key lime for a light, fizzy cocktail that not only looks beautiful, but also tastes delicious.
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cup club soda
1 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice
1/2 cup vodka
3 tablespoons fresh Key lime juice (about 3 limes)
Key lime slices (optional)
Combine sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes or just until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat; cool.
Combine sugar syrup, club soda, pomegranate juice, vodka, and lime juice. Place crushed ice in a martini shaker; add about 3/4 cup pomegranate mixture. Cover and shake. Strain into a glass. Garnish with lime slice, if desired. Repeat procedure with remaining pomegranate mixture.
