A festive twist on a popular classic drink. Christmas Cosmopolitan is made with pomegranate juice, ginger beer (or 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, I like Absolut Kurant with it’s black current flavor. It’s not sold everywhere, in fact, it’s hard to find but my local BevMo always has it. I like it on the rocks with a splash of cranberry and I think it works really well in this cosmo. If you can’t find it, any of your favorite vodka will work.

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 Cosmopolitan, it can be served all month long and is perfect  for your New Years Eve party.
