Muddled Raspberry Pomegranate Martini – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

If there’s one thing I enjoy, it’s a delightful cocktail that feeds a summertime mood; like this Muddled Raspberry Pomegranate Martini.

Naturally sweet notes from fresh raspberries and a splash of pomegranate juice, pressed with the back of a wooden spoon with just a few basil leaves, creates such a delicious drink.  Shaken, not stirred with your favorite vodka and lots of ice, then strained into glasses until a ruby waterfall appears, and then topped with a skewer of berries and basil flowers.

Nothing more gorgeous or tasty when the sun is setting and the heat begins to disappear.  I like to chill the glasses ahead of time, so everything stays extra cold during summertime.  Enjoy!
