We are innkeepers, and one of the amazing parts of innkeeping is those guests that come back over and over again. February for us includes a scrap weekend. Scrap.. scrapbooking, a whole niche by itself. These folks are serious scrappers arriving with little wheelie suitcases filled with paper, cutters, photos .. everything you need to put together those one of a kind photo albums. I have loved it.. through the years watching pictures of their kids, vacation, tailgate parties and life events. It has been over 10 years that this same group comes and stays. They found and adopted the current inn cat (Agatha), they convinced Werner to have the fire pit going in the middle of winter, and they taught me all manner of mixing cocktails. So… ladies, this one is for you! Pomegranate Martinis.. a thing of beauty!
2 oz citron vodka
2 oz orange liquor ( I used Patron Citronage)
2 oz Pome (pure pomegranate juice)
1/2 lime, juiced
ice to shake
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
measure the vodka, orange liquor, pomegranate juice, and lime juice into the shaker.
Top with a glass and shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with a thin lime slice
PS the beautiful martini glass was painted by one of the scrappers, Anne Marie. I just love it!
