Pomegranate and Blood Orange Gin Martini
This classic and fruity gin martini recipe is sweetened with a hint of blood orange and pomegranate juice. This is an upscale, yet secretly easy martini recipe that would be perfect for the winter or holiday season, but you can definitely drink it all year round!
- 3 ounces London dry gin
- 1.5 ounce blood orange juice freshly squeezed
- 1 ounce pomegranate juice
- blood orange thinly sliced, for garnish
To a chilled cocktail mixing glass, add 1 cup of ice, gin, blood orange juice, and pomegranate juice. Stir together for 30 seconds to chill and combine ingredients.
Strain, using a hawthorne/julep strainer and a fine mesh strainer, into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a slice of blood orange. Serve immediately.
To keep your martini nice and cold, put your martini glasses and mixing glasses in the freezer about 1-2 hours before making the cocktail.
If the martini is too strong for your liking, add in additional blood orange and pomegranate juice until the desired taste is reached.
For a mocktail version of this drink, substitute gin for a lemon-lime soda, like Fresca, or sparkling water.
I love using Esmé gin in this cocktail,
