(Adult) Tasty Treat Thursday: Pomegranate Martini

It is my philosophy that everybody needs a personal Happy Hour every once in a while - whether you are coming off of a long day at the office or wrangling multiple children in your home.  I tasted a pomegranate martini a few months ago at Brickside Grille just outside of West Chester in Lionville, PA (one of my most favorite places to eat!), and it was absolutely lovely (and full of antioxidants, so it's practically good for you).

Rachael Ray has a good recipe for such a martini (which, apparently, Oprah loves), and I'm thinking I may pick up some of the ingredients for it today (or this weekend).  It sounds like the perfect Girls Night Out (or Girl Night In)!

Tasty Treat Thursday

Pomegranate Martini

1 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. orange liqueur (Cointreau is the suggestion)
3 oz. pomegranate juice

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shake 1/4 filled with chopped ice. Shake and strain into a glass.  Serve with a squeeze of lemon.

(NOTE: I've also seen recipes that call for 1/4-1/2 oz of Simple Syrup instead of Orange Liqueur - so feel free to substitute that if you don't have the liqueur on hand. Simple Syrup is 2 parts sugar to 1 part water. Boil until dissolved!)

So...go ahead and treat yourself.

You deserve it :)

What are your tasty treats???
