Pomegranate Martinis

I had a delicious pomegranate martini at J. Alexander's last weekend.  They make them with pomegranate-infused vodka, pomegranate juice, and fresh squeezed lemons and oranges, and were so yummy.  I asked Brad to try to recreate one for me this evening, and this is what he came up with.  We only had limes on hand, no lemons or oranges, but it was really good!  Sort of like a pomegranate Cosmo.

These measurements are approximate, as Brad just gave me a rough guess of how much he used, so feel free to adjust the ingredients to suit your taste.

Pomegranate Martinis

4 oz vodka
8 oz pomegranate juice
juice of 1 lime

Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice.  Shake thoroughly, strain and serve.  This makes enough to fill 2 to 3 martini glasses.
