A very light and refreshing cocktail that goes well with winter or summer parties.
- 1 oz vodka (or citrus vodka, if you have it)
- 1/2 oz Cointreau orange liqueur
- 3 oz pomegranate juice
- chopped ice
- 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice, for garnish
- lemon slice, for garnish
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice so that the shaker is about a third full (ice plus ingredients).
Shake for 20 seconds. Strain into a cocktail glass.
Squeeze a couple of drops from the lemon slice into the glass, then garnish the side of the cocktail glass with the slice of lemon.
