Cranberry Pomegranate Martinis

By Kate Riley December 8, 2015

Last weekend I had extended family in town so my sister and I got creative with cocktails – we were in the mood for a citrusy berry vodka martini so with some brief experimentation we came up with these pretty and tasty cranberry pomegranate martinis for the ladies.

I realized later this is very similar to a cosmopolitan but without the lime juice, no wonder we liked them so much! The ingredients are simple, citron vodka and triple sec to add a touch of citrus flavor combined with cranberry pomegranate juice.


First I prepped the glasses with fresh cranberries on a cocktail pick, an orange twist adds to the pretty presentation. Those gorgeous library martini glasses are from Pottery Barn, so is the stag cocktail shaker which I gave to my sister as an early Christmas gift.

To make three martinis, combine the following in a cocktail shaker: ice, 1 cup of cranberry pomegranate juice, 1/3 cup of citron vodka, and 2 capfuls (or tablespoons) of triple sec. Mix and pour!

We dined afterwards, it’s always nice to share a meal with my extended family. I’ll share a few more images of the Christmas tablescape seen in the background tomorrow.

  1. LOL. This reminds me of the time my husband stayed with a friend in San Jose in the winter. Where we live near Chicago, winter is … Winter! But at his friend’s house, they decided to make pomegranate martinis. So they plucked a lemon from the lemon tree in the front yard, and a pomegranate from the pomegranate tree in the backyard, and made their martinis. Sigh. No they didn’t have a distillery on site, they did have to get vodka from somewhere else!

  2. I never thought of doing the lemon flavored vodka…wow I’m a moron. I can’t have citrus juice so I have stayed away from martinis. A new world has opened up!
