I can tell you that it was an ‘accidental’ cocktail.
Few years ago, on a Valentine’s Day, my husband asked me which cocktail I would like, and I asked for one of my favorites – the Cosmopolitan.
When I sipped the cocktail I was surprised how different it tasted… and how good it tasted. The secret was in the juice used to make that drink.
We were out of cranberry juice, a traditional Cosmopolitan ingredient, so my husband added a splash of cranberry-pomegranate 100% juice instead. What a pleasing substitute! A touch of pomegranate made that martini more complex and incredibly delicious.
This enjoyable cocktail is great for any holiday feast. One of the best!
In a shaker, combine all the ingredients except the lemon zest strip.
Shake vigorously for 15-20 seconds.
Strain the cocktail into a martini glass. Garnish with the lemon or lime peel.
The taste could be affected by the quality of lemon juice.
Cook with pleasure and enjoy the world!
