A drink for the holidays

Paul’s note: Emmanuel is my business partner and an important influence on (at least) one cool thing. Previously Emmanuel has shared his favorite lunch spot and his favorite TV show. I’ve adopted both enthusiastically, and I suspect I will do the same today’s suggestion. Emmanuel writes:

Inspired by the health benefits of the pomegranate, I’ve developed a drink loosely based on the Cosmopolitan Martini. My wife and I enjoy this recipe much more than the traditional Cosmo, and we are happy to receive the added health benefits pomegranate provides when indulging in a cocktail or two. (statements not verified by the FDA ;-)

In an ice-filled shaker, pour:

5 parts of Vodka (I use Skyy for this recipe)
3 parts of pomegranate
2 parts of triple-sec

shake and strain. For extra intrigue, follow Meg’s suggestion and add one frozen raspberry to each glass after you have poured the drinks.
