Friday Night Cocktail

Before Christmas, Maxanne and I hatched a plan to make presents rather than buy them. We make chilli jam, granola, chocolate truffles, peanut brittle, vinegars and pomegranate vodka.

It’s the vodka that concerns me here, I have some left over and I’m not quite sure what to do with it. I’ve heard that it makes a nice vodka, lime and soda but that’s not really a cocktail.

It wasn’t my intention to make a ‘girly drink’ but it is pink, however the bitters balance it and prevent it from being too sweet.



60ml (20z) pomegranate vodka

a dash of orange bitters

15ml (.5oz) Cointreau

15ml (.5oz) grenadine


1) Half fill a shaker with ice

2) Add bitters, vodka, Cointreau and grenadine.

3) Shake and pour into a chilled cocktail glass
