Felicity Huffman's What the Flicka? Hump Day Cocktail: Posmo

I’ve never been much of a Cosmo girl, however, I recently tried a Posmo which is a Pomegranate Cosmopolitan. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I like it. Have you ever had one? If not, you’re going to make one! As always, I search and scour the internets for an easy recipe, with ingredients you may already have. Here is my favorite variation:

Pomegranate juice
Triple Sec (or other orange liqueur)
Lemon or lime juice
Orange twist

Pour 1 shot of vodka, 1/2 of a shot of Triple Sec, 2 tablespoons of pomegranate juice and 3/4 of a teaspoon of lemon or lime juice over ice in your martini shaker. Shake very well until thoroughly chilled, and pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with your orange twist.

I feel as though pomegranate cocktails transition beautifully between each season. It’s a refreshing beverage in the spring and summer, and a pretty color for fall or the holidays. More importantly, it’s perfect for a girl’s-night-in. Do you have a favorite pomegranate cocktail recipe? If so, let me know in the comments because I’d love to try it. =)
