With the popularity of pomegranate juice being used in cocktails, I came up with a variation of a pomegranate martini using some limoncello we got from Sorrento, Italy. It's a tasty drink!

This drink is one of the BEST drinks I've ever had! It's even better than my own pom martini recipe, which is saying a lot! Hubby and I have never had limoncello before, but the local liquor store had a coupon, so we decided to try it. It's wonderful - think Lemon Head candy in liquid form! This drink is a great combo of ingredients. I did cut the pom juice down to only 2 oz. so it wouldn't overpower the limoncello, and it was just right. My favorite brand of juice is Pom Wonderful, it has the best color and flavor. Thank you so much for this drink recipe! Read More

Very tasty but for me once was enough. Tip...don't waste the Grey Goose on this drink. Any old cheap vodka is good enough. You really wouldn't be able to taste the difference anyway. Read More

This was excellent! It reminded me of a cosmopolitan. I made some home-made limoncello and was looking for recipes to use it in. I find plain vodka strong. So I did 2.5 oz of the limoncello and left out the vodka. For the pomegranite juice I used cranberry-pomegranite. I poured it over ice. Awesome! Read More

This is absolutely the best Martini variation that I have ever tried. When I first tried this drink we were preparing for my daughters engagement party. We had covered nearly all the bases when I saw this recipe we made a small batch and tried it WOW it was wonderful. Made it right after the recipe perfect!!! We made 10 Gallons of this Martini and we ran out not even half way through the party. Made 10 more gallons we had about 2 glasses full left at the end of the evening. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. Read More

Mother Goose I had the same "reading" you had. I had to enlarge the font to make sure it was OK. Anyway this is a fabulous take on a martini. Lots of yummy antioxidants to counteract the alcohol. Really delicious but not too strong. YUM-O!!! Read More

As soon as I saw this recipe I ran to the kitchen with homemade Meyer lemon limoncello in hand. Made as directed this martini was a little sweet for our tastes but adding a bit more vodka rectified that issue. I am sure that it many people would find the sweetness spot on however. Next time I will use 2 ounces of pomegranate juice. This is a very good drink kind of a cosmo on steroids. Read More
