You guys, this pomegranate sparkling martini I created is SO good! I teamed up with PAMA pomegranate flavored liqueur for this one and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s the perfect signature cocktail to serve at your summer party!
The ruby red color makes this drink so pretty. The flavor is a combination of sweet & tart from the PAMA liqueur, plus a little touch of orange liqueur, and because everything’s better with the bubbly, I topped it off with sparkling wine. Can’t you just imagine sipping this during happy hour with the girls, or pre-dinner drinks?
Get the recipe for my pomegranate sparkling martini below.
Pomegranate Sparkling Martini
- 1 1/2 oz PAMA liqueur
- 1/2 oz orange liqueur
- Sparkling wine, Cava, or Prosecco
In a cocktail shaker, add ice, PAMA, and orange liqueur. Cover and shake vigorously for about 6-7 seconds.
Strain mixture into a martini glass and top off with sparkling wine (about 3 ounces)
Garnish with a floating orange wheel topped with pomegranate arils if you like.
I love the idea of creating a red and white party for the summer and this drink would be a terrific coordinating cocktail to serve. You could also mix it up for Valentine’s day, Christmas, and of course the 4th of July.
If you want to lighten the “kick” you can top it off with ginger ale instead of the bubbly. We are all about options around here!
When serving drinks that have a bit of sweetness to them I like to balance the flavor with something salty and savory. These beef & blue party sandwiches would be a delicious complement, or these ham & Parmesan canapes.
