The Pomegranate Cosmo is a great way to enjoy the flavors of pomegranates. Pomegranates are native to Iran and the Himalayan region. A member of the citrus family, it is related to grapefruits and oranges. Pomegranates are a good source of vitamins C and K, as well as antioxidants.
In Greek mythology, the story is that Persephone ate pomegranate seeds when she was abducted by Hades, the god of the underworld. This act of eating the pomegranate seeds bound Persephone to the underworld for six months every year. The pomegranate has a rich history steeped in mythology.

Ingredients for the Perfect Pomegranate Cosmo
Vodka – Vodka provides the base for this delicious and sophisticated drink
Unsweetened Pomegranate Juice – You should be able to find pomegranate juice in your local grocery store in the produce section. I like the Pom Wonderful brand personally. I would recommend unsweetened but if you prefer a sweeter drink try sweetened.
Fresh Lime – Fresh lime slices or wedges are used not only as a garnish but I add a bit of fresh squeezed lime juice to the drink as well.
Orange Liqueur – This will provide sweetness to the drink, which is why I recommend unsweetened pomegranate juice. You can use Triple Sec or Cointreau for your orange liqueur.
Ice – For shaking and mixing the pomegranate cosmo as well as chilling the drink!
