Pomegranate Cosmopolitan

Here is the perfect cocktail to serve at your holiday party via Ina Garten in her Back to Basics cookbook.

2 cups of good vodka

1 cup Cointreau

1 cup cranberry juice cocktail

1/2 cup pomegranate juice

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

Thinly sliced limes, for garnish

Combine the vodka, Cointreau, cranberry juice, pomegranate juice and lime juice in a pitcher. Fill a cocktail shaker half full of ice, pour mixture in and shake for 30 seconds. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with slice of lime. Makes 6 drinks.

So yummy and so festive!
