Armenian Recipe: Tina’s Armenian-Kiss Martini

By

Pomegranates are the Armenian national fruit and you could easily say that vodka is an Armenian national pastime. Combine the two together and you have an explosively delicious cocktail, rich in Armenian flavor.

This is a great one not just for the holidays but any festive occasion.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
2 ounces quality vodka
1 ounce cointreau or Triple Sec or Grand Marnier
1 tsp. orange blossom water
1 cup of ice
Garnish with pomegranate arils and citrus peel

Instructions:

Garnish chilled martini glasses with pomegranate arils and a citrus peel. Shake all ingredients in a shaker and pour into garnished glasses.
