Pomegranate Martini

I was feeling seriously uninspired when it came to posting a recipe this week. There really was nothing I felt like making–I just wanted to relax with a nice drink.

Then I thought “Hey, why do my recipes need to be child-friendly all the time?” I don’t drink much, but I know that a good cocktail recipe deserves sharing just as much as a good dinner or dessert! So I present to you, my first adults-only offering: The Pomegranate Martini!
