Sparkling Pomegranate Raspberry Vodka Martini

When the holidays roll around, it is time for a festive pomegranate vodka martini! Adding a little bubbly on top will make it even more festive

October thru January is the peak time for pomegranates. Therefore, take this opportunity to get a hold of some, and crush the pomegranate arils to get that fresh, slightly tart juice. Don’t worry about the mess! Simply score 3 ways, and peel under water! The arils release easily, and you are set for pomegranate vodka martini making!

Give this cocktail a try! We think that a vodka martini needs a little red dress for the holiday season! Cheers!
