A festive twist on a popular classic drink. Christmas Cosmopolitan is made with pomegranate juice, ginger ale for sweetness and, of course, vodka. This could be called a pomegranate ginger martini, but Christmas Cosmopolitan is a much more fun name.

Let’s talk about the vodka. Plain or flavored vodka can be used. Lemon, blueberry, cranberry, apple or pomegranate, just to name a few.

If you’re looking for Christmas tequila drink, you can replace the vodka, with tequila. The same goes if you’re a gin drinker, as well.

Best served well chilled in a stemmed or stemless martini glass. To help keep it cold, keep your glasses in the freezer right up until you make the drink.

To make a festive garnish, I took fresh sprigs of rosemary and poked a hole through with a toothpick then carefully threaded them onto the leaves of the rosemary. Fun!

Just because this is a Christmas cocktail, it can be served all month long and is perfect for your New Years Eve party.
