As promised, I will be re-posting the recipes from my luxurious Iraqi dinner party. Today I am starting with the pomegranate martinis we served before the first course.
I had never had a martini before this, and to be honest, I’m not sure I will have one after. They are just waaaayyyy to strong for me. I’m a margarita sort of girl. But, I like to try new things, and if you do too, then you should at least try this at least once.
Just a warning – this makes enough for 6 drinks. And, the original recipe can be found here. Please note that mine is much darker than theirs, but I was using jarred syrup as opposed to fresh made.
3 Cups Vodka (I used Istanblue)
1/3 Cup dry Vermouth (I used Noilly Prat)
3/4 Cup Pomegranate Syrup
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
Mix together and serve chilled. I pre chill all my alcohol so I didn’t need to pour the drink over ice, but you should if your alcohol is not cold enough.
Enjoy with your friends!
